If you want to know whether Strzok was biased, just look at his texts

CNN)Many of the media's seasoned political analysts professed to hear nothing new in FBI agent Peter Strzok's congressional testimony Thursday. It is true that the embarrassing and completely inappropriate text messages he exchanged with his FBI paramour, attorney Lisa Page, have already been publicly dissected.

The FBI portrait, painted in agonizing detail by headline-hunting congressional interrogators, was an ugly view of an institution that once enjoyed a reputation for political independence, honesty and integrity. Strzok, an expert in the field of counterintelligence, had played a leading role in the Hillary Clinton investigation. And particularly damaging was the fact that, according to unnamed US officials, Strzok played a role in changing former FBI Director James Comey's wording regarding how she handled classified information from "gross negligence" to the noncriminal "extremely careless."


Strzok's testimony suggests the selection of the words "gross negligence" reflected his honest factual assessment of Clinton's conduct in the handling of classified email. Use of the words was flagged by unnamed FBI lawyers because "gross negligence" has a specific legal implication and might convey the wrong message about Clinton's actions.
The words "gross negligence" are used in a federal criminal statute related to misuse of classified information. Strzok then changed the wording to the legally tepid "extremely careless," thereby enabling his boss, Comey, to sound credible when saying that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a criminal case against Clinton based on these facts.
