Opinion: DOJ IG report points to bias in FBI, contrary to Democrat and media lies
WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - One of the most significant findings in last week’s report by the inspector general of the Department of Justice was that current -- yes, current -- FBI official Peter Strzok texted his lover and now former FBI official Lisa Page that “we’ll stop” President Trump from winning the 2016 election.
Peter Strzok’s texts, as well as his decision to focus on the Russia investigation over the Clinton email investigation, have cast a very dark cloud over both probes and the credibility of the FBI overall. Strzok is the poster child for anti-Trump bias within very senior levels of the DOJ and FBI during the 2016 election and beyond.
The IG made the strong, declarative statement that: “we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision [to prioritize the Russia investigation over the email investigation] was free from bias.”
Nevertheless, we’ve seen House and Senate Democrats and other pundits state that this report, despite very clearly pointing to bias, somehow says that there was no bias in the FBI.
Do not believe those lies.
They perfectly illustrate the disconnect between the media, the Democrat Party, and the American people.
Here’s the bottom line: Democrats and many members of the media are working overtime to mislead the American people when it comes to the inspector general's report. They will fight tooth and nail to defend Strzok and any other anti-Trump bias within law enforcement, because their personal hatred for President Trump is a huge part of the Democratic platform headed into the November elections.
