Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano said today it’s still to early to declare the Mueller investigation biased over the anti-Trump texts sent by FBI agents.
Peter Strzok was kicked off the probe after the texts were discovered. A number of those texts were released last night, wherein he — among other things — called President Trump an “idiot.”
On Outnumbered Overtime today, Napolitano told Harris Faulkner, “The issue is not ‘Do FBI agents have political opinions and can they express them?’ The answer to that is yes and yes. The issue is ‘Do those political opinions in any way influence the outcome of their investigation?'”
And he noted the DOJ and FBI have “a lot of procedures to keep that from happening.”
He agreed with Rod Rosenstein’s assessment today that it’s “too early to say whether or not so-and-so’s political opinion affected the outcome, because we haven’t reached the outcome yet.”
Faulkner asked him if he’s “worried these [texts] were going on.” Napolitano said no, because “FBI agents are not choirboys or choirgirls.”
“They are strong-willed people with strong opinions like the rest of us,” he said. “None of this surprises me.”
