FBI Director Christopher Wray is instructing his agency to provide anti-political bias training to its agents this week; despite claims in the Inspector General’s report there was “no bias” in the bureau’s botched Hillary investigation.
According to the Washington Times, Wray promised Thursday to take “a number of steps” to avoid a repeat of the political turmoil and upheaval that plagued the agency throughout the 2016 race for the White House.

“The new report said that while bias didn’t appear to affect the big decisions in the handling of the initial investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices, they couldn’t rule out a role for bias in pushing the FBI to focus on the Russia probe in October 2016, rather than go back to review a new set of emails found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner,” writes the Times.
The Director’s pledge comes hours after the IG report revealed new text messages between DOJ employees, with one vowing to “stop” Donald Trump from winning the presidency.

COLLUSION COLLAPSE: New Documents Show OBAMA Officials, FBI COORDINATED in Anti-Trump Probe
In a new bombshell report by Sara Carter, recently obtained documents show high-levels of coordination between senior Obama officials, the CIA, and the FBI while investigating President Trump’s campaign throughout the 2016 race for the White House.
“Documents obtained by congressional investigators suggest possible coordination by Obama White House officials, the CIA and the FBI into the investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign,” writes Carter. “Those senior Obama officials used unsubstantiated evidence to launch allegations in the media that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia during the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.”
“The documents also reveal that former Senate majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, sent a letter on Aug. 29, 2016, asking then FBI Director James Comey to investigate the allegations, which were presented to him by then CIA Director John Brennan,” she adds.
“Brennan had briefed Reid privately days earlier on the counterintelligence investigation and documents suggest Reid was also staying in close touch with Comey over the issues. The Gang of Eight is a group of eight lawmakers who have access to the most highly classified information and often meet on Capitol Hill to be briefed on classified material,” writes Carter.

COLLUSION: Mueller Hires ANOTHER Democrat for Trump-Russia Witch Hunt
The special counsel in charge of the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory witch-hunt has hired yet another democratic donor to spearhead the investigation; raising the number to eight individuals who had previously given money to prominent liberals like Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
According to Reuters, New York defense attorney Greg Andres has joined Mueller’s task force charged with probing the Trump campaign’s alleged ties with Russian government officials.
Federal Election Commission filings show that Andres gave nearly $4000 to the democratic party, including $2700 to help NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s campaign in 2017.
The Daily Caller also reports that Andres’ wife, Ronnie Abrams, is a federal judge appointed by none-other-than former President Barack Obama back in 2011.
Robert Mueller has come under fire for hiring left-leaning, democratic donors to help run his investigation of the Trump administration. The President and other GOP lawmakers are calling on Mueller to step down from the probe over these conflicts of interest, as well as his close relationship with former FBI director James Comey.
“I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters, some of them worked for Hillary Clinton,” The President said during an interview in late June. “I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous if you want to know the truth.”
