In principle, they should be, but in reality, persons working within the FBI can be and are political, and have allegiances.pErvinalia wrote: ↑Wed Aug 15, 2018 11:15 pmThe FBI are and Mueller are apolitical.
Page - “Yeah, it is pretty cool. [Clinton] just has to win now. I’m not going to lie, I got a flash of nervousness yesterday about trump. The sandernistas have the potential to make a very big mistake here …”
Strzok: “I’m not worried about them. I’m worried about the anarchist Assanges who will take fed information and disclose it to disrupt. We’ve gotta get the memo and brief and case filing done.”
Page: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
The investigative report concluded that such statements were
“indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects. This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice,
Sounds pretty darn political. And Strzok was no small fry in the investigation.Strzok: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
There are plenty more indicators. People were fired over it.
The FBI drafted the memo ending the investigation of Clinton months before they interviewed her. https://www.newsweek.com/james-comey-fb ... ent-686140

Much of that sounds rather un-apolitical.keep in mind, the same people, the same players that were involved in the Clinton probe later move to the Russia probe. John Brennan who said he should be in the dustbin of history. Jim Comey who said impeachment was too good of a remedy. Loretta Lynch who wanted Hillary Clinton to win.
And then we got Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, the two FBI employees. Chris -- and this is what's most important to me, those two presumed and pronounced Hillary Clinton's innocence before her investigation ended, and they presumed and pronounced Donald Trump's guilt before the investigation
even began. So, when you have that pervasiveness of bias, yes, it's going to help the person who is complaining about the investigation.
