The FBI made 17 major errors and omissions in its investigation. Not one mistake favored Team Trump. Was that a coincidence? Is the FBI really so incompetent? Or was it so biased it couldn't conduct an honest investigation? That's the focus of Episode #10.
The Department of Justice Inspector General said he couldn't explain why so many mistakes occurred in the FBI's investigation. When he asked the agents, lawyers and supervisors involved, he didn't get good answers. He also reported that there was no testimonial or documentary evidence of political bias. What that means is nobody confessed to taking official action based on their anti-Trump bias. And nobody put in writing that they were taking official action based on their anti-Trump bias.
But make no mistake, the investigation was biased against candidate and later President Trump from the outset. That bias is readily apparent in text messages between key players in the investigation including Peter Strozk the FBI agent who managed the Crossfire Hurricane investigation on a day-to-day basis. The bias is reflected in the pattern of dishonest and illegal behavior that marked the investigation including the suppression of exculpatory evidence and the tampering of evidence by the Federal Government.
The bias is also evident in the very public statements of a wide range of players involved in the investigation including Strozk who as recently as September 13, 2020 claimed, without evidence, Russia's Putin had leverage over President Trump.
