There has been a lot of news recently of overwhelming anti-Trump bias in the FBI. The FBI is supposed to be dispassionate and neutral and objective in their investigations, but have shown time and time again, that they have a bias against the person they are doing an investigation against.
MSNBC’s Chuck Todd tried his hardest to minimize these valid concerns. He attacked Republicans for demanding that people be objective. He then complained that these same Republicans stop him from showing his own political biases as a news reporter.
“By the way, this feels like a slippery slope, this thought police stuff– where does it end? Does that mean FBI agents are not allowed to have any political opinions? They’ve done it to our industry, in absurd levels, and it was a campaign tactic. And now they’re doing it to FBI investigators,” whined Todd.
“Making your opposition, or even in this case the observers, the press, part of the story…” responded AP White House reporter Jonathan Lemire. “Just like the FBI. The investigators. They’re not taking a side,” claimed Todd without evidence.
“But the Trump world, and and the right in particular– both sides have done this, but particularly the right and Trump world have soared of made the FBI or the press the story and used it to attack them and undermine credibility,” said Lemire.
