For John, BLUF: If Democrats are behind this and are in fear of exposure, this could get real ugly. Nothing to see here; just move along.
No Writer is listed, but this is an Editorial from Investor's Business Daily, 13 February 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
Whenever anyone suggested that officials at the FBI and Justice Department might have had a political bias that severely tainted both the investigation into the Trump-Russia and Hillary Clinton email scandals, they were called conspiracy-mongers or worse.For me the worrying thing is not an impeachment of President Trump with a new (and Democratic Party controlled Congress), but rather an implosion of the Democratic Party caused by the revelation that supposedly politically neutral Government Officials, including long term Professional Civil Servants, had decided that Candidate Donald Trump was a threat to the Republic and used the tools available to Government to spy on him and to defame him That would mark us as a Third Rate Banana Republic.
But if the FBI and Justice are so squeaky clean of political bias, what accounts for the growing pile of top officials deeply involved in those supposedly aboveboard investigations who've been reassigned, demoted or have suddenly quit their jobs? There have been nearly half a dozen in just the past few weeks. Thankfully, reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been keeping a running tally.
I am counting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller to play it straight—"Truth, Justice and the American Way."
