FBI background interviews of some people who knew Apple founder Steve Jobs reveal a man so driven by power that he sometimes lost sight of honesty.

The newly released FBI interviews conducted in 1991 were part of a background check for an appointment to the President's Export Council during George H.W. Bush's administration.

The Commerce Department confirmed Thursday that Jobs did serve on the council during the first Bush administration.

One person told FBI agents the Apple founder's enormous power caused him to lose sight of honesty and integrity, causing him to distort the truth.

Another person described Jobs to the FBI as a deceptive person — someone who was not totally forthright and honest and as having a tendency to distort reality in order to achieve his goals.
