Tucker: Flynn's Guilty Plea Doesn't Prove Collusion

Judge Nap: How Flynn Plea Deal Could Lead to 'Constitutional Crisis'


Ben Shapiro said new revelations about an FBI agent involved in politically sensitive cases - including the investigations into Hillary Clinton's private email server and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia - make it clear once again that the bureau has biases.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller removed the FBI Russian counterintelligence expert from his team after an internal probe found he exchanged texts with a colleague that could be interpreted as showing bias against President Donald Trump and for Clinton.

"We know that [former FBI Director] James Comey was basically letting Hillary Clinton off with nothing but a public slap on the wrist," Shapiro said on "America's News HQ." "Now we know that another FBI agent who was working on that particular case was biased against President Trump."

Leland Vittert pointed out that Trump tweeted on Sunday that the fired agent is "tainted" and the FBI's "reputation is in tatters."

"It's certainly a problem when we have no trust in any of our institutions," Shapiro said. "The president's at war with the FBI, the FBI's at war with the president, the president's at war with parts of the DOJ. Right now, it seems like no one trusts any member of any institution."

Shapiro said this is playing out in Alabama, where large numbers of voters do not believe the child molestation allegations against Roy Moore because of an overall distrust of the media. 

"It's a level of antipathy which I don't think is completely unwarranted. As the institutions are torn apart, it's going to be very difficult to put the country back together. We're not operating off the same basis of common fact."
