Bias? What bias? The FBI had it all going one way helping Hillary and attacking Trump

James Robbins:
Justice Dept. email report proves anti-Donald Trump/pro-Hillary Clinton bias

The only way the Justice Department Inspector General could find no bias at the FBI is if he ignored the mountains of evidence in his own report.

When is political bias not political bias? When it is directed against Donald Trump.

The long-awaited Justice Department Office of the Inspector General (IG) report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation concluded that “there was no evidence of bias or other improper considerations affecting the handling” of the investigation. The hunt for bias was central to the IG’s inquiry. The word appears 120 times in the document. But though they refused to admit it, the IG team found bias wherever they looked.

The most shocking statement was from the Peter Strzok/Lisa Page texts. “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote, to which Strzok replied, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” The IG report noted that this is “not only indicative of a biased state of mind,” but “even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact [Donald Trump’s] electoral prospects.”
...
As Robbins points out, he said this at about the time the Russian investigation began.   The fact is that the whole Mueller investigation is tainted by this bias.  Apparently, there was at least one other attorney working on the case that overtly exposed his bias.  But the entire team is made up of angry Democrats led by a former Republican.

Kimberley Strassel also nails it:
...
Yet it is the report’s findings on the wider culture of the FBI and Justice Department that are most alarming. The report depicts agencies that operate outside the rules to which they hold everybody else, and that showed extraordinary bias while investigating two presidential candidates.
...
But the bias is everywhere. It’s in the texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and those of three other employees who are routinely “hostile” to Candidate Trump. It’s in Ms. Page’s freak-out that Mr. Trump might win the presidency and Mr. Strzok’s reply: “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” It’s in a message from an unnamed agent in November 2016 who writes that although the FBI found Clinton aide Huma Abedin had “lied,” it doesn’t matter since “no one at DOJ is going to prosecute.” To which a second agent replies. “Rog—noone is going to pros[ecute] even if we find unique classified.”
This is just the first report.  I expect to find similar bias in the Russian probe.
