Republican Representative Trey Gowdy questioned the Justice Department’s inspector general over “attempts to mitigate” anti-Trump bias in the FBI, as House members held a politically charged hearing on the watchdog’s 500-page report.

“Bias and fairness cannot co-exist,” Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Tuesday. Evidence of prejudice against Donald Trump within the FBI “conjure anger, disappointment and sadness to everyone who reads it.”
