FBI actions are guided by law, not personal bias | Letter

Tainted FBI? Nonsense.

Trump appointed Christopher Wray, a Republican, as FBI Director. The Department of Justice, which has jurisdiction over the FBI, is run by another couple of Republican Trump appointments, Attorney General (Jeff) Sessions and Deputy AG (Rod) Rosenstein. Rosenstein appointed Republican Robert Mueller as special counsel after Republican James Comey was fired.

Mueller is also a highly decorated Vietnam War veteran. Appointed as FBI director by George W. Bush, he served in that position from 2001 to 2013. He won high bipartisan praise for running the FBI with great integrity.

Last July, the DOJ Inspector General discovered that a member of Mueller’s team, agent Peter Strzok, texted negative views of Trump – plus Hillary (Clinton), Chelsea (Clinton), Bernie Sanders, and Eric Holder. Strozok texted that he would probably vote for Rebublican John Kasich. Mueller booted Strzok off the team and reassigned him to HR while the incident is investigated.

There is no evidence so far the Strzok’s personal views affected his work. But even if there were, Mueller did exactly the right thing.

The FBI’s actions are guided by the law and the evidence. The agency is comprised of brave men and women who risk their lives to protect our security and safety.

We all owe our FBI a debt of appreciation we can never repay.
