Recently, a US DOJ Inspector General's Office's investigation disclosed that Peter Strzok, Deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, who lead the Clinton Classified Materials investigation, and was a member of Special Counsel Mueller's Russian collusion investigation, had been reassigned because of the discovery of phone texts he had sent to a colleague that were anti-Trump and pro-Clinton. This is a significant development as it now questions the integrity and impartiality of both the Clinton and Russian investigations, especially the former. This comes as revelations have surfaced that former FBI Director Comey had drafted an "exoneration" memo of Clinton months before she and her top aides were interviewed and the investigation had concluded. These developments, including the fact that several of the prosecutors on Mueller’s team donated to the Clinton or Obama campaigns, give the appearance of politics influencing prosecution decisions and cast suspicion over their results.
