White House says FBI records show 'extreme bias' against Trump

The White House says newly revealed FBI records show there is “extreme bias” against President Donald Trump among senior leadership at the FBI. 

Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told Fox News that edits to former FBI director James Comey’s statement on Hillary Clinton’s private email server and text messages from a top agent critical of Trump are “deeply troubling.”

“There is extreme bias against this president with high-up members of the team there at the FBI who were investigating Hillary Clinton at the time,” Gidley charged, as special counsel Robert Mueller continues with a probe of possible Trump campaign ties to Russia.

Gidley says Trump maintains confidence in the FBI’s rank-and-file.

Trump is scheduled to attend an FBI National Academy graduation service later Friday, and is expected to deliver remarks to graduates of the 10-week program.

The academy is an invitation-only “professional course of study” for U.S. and international law enforcement that takes place at the FBI campus in Quantico, Va., according to the agency’s website.
