FBI agents are allowed to be politically biased, but aiming to influence an investigation is “where I draw the line,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Sunday.

In remarks on “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo,” Dershowitz condemned FBI investigator Peter Strzok for texting his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, about stopping the Trump presidency.

“FBI agents are allowed to be biased,” Dershowitz said. “They're allowed to support political candidates. That's part of the law. Where I draw the line is when an FBI agent says ‘we'll stop him.’

“That's not an expression of bias. That's not saying who we're going to vote for. That sends a message to the American people that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is going to interfere in an election, in an effort to try to stop the election of one candidate rather than the other.”

Dershowitz said Strzok’s vow should’ve been reason enough to toss him from the bureau.

“I don't understand how Strzok can remain an FBI agent after saying, ‘we'll stop that, we'll stop him from being president,’” Dershowitz said. ““That to me is where the red line was crossed. When he said ‘we need an insurance policy,’ ‘I support her,’ you're entitled to support a candidate if you're an FBI agent. But you're not allowed to try to use your office to stop somebody from being elected president of the United States.”
