Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Caller News Foundation, Chris Bedford, said the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has damaged its reputation by expressing political views and being “grossly partisan,” Friday on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.”
Bedford addressed the news of the House Intelligence Committee being granted access to FBI and Department of Justice witnesses, including FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
Strzok was caught sending texts critical of President Donald Trump, calling the president an “idiot,” while being involved in an extramarital affair with Page.
“This is not the days of J. Edgar Hoover when the FBI just has a vice grip — answers only to itself,” Bedford said. “This is a good step in the right direction for the FBI to actually turn this information over to Congress. Congress has oversight. The FBI doesn’t operate with impunity.”
Bedford also addressed former FBI director James Comey’s recent tweet where he quoted the Bible, after National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.

“We’ve been seeing these really self-righteous moral signaling from James Comey’s Twitter account,” Bedford concluded. “He seems to get more into that recently, about how people shouldn’t ever impugn the integrity of the FBI … But these people, Strzok who was texting, these people Ohr, they’ve impugned the integrity of the FBI by acting so grossly partisan.”
