    the FBI is an independent agency. its director is appointed by the president, but its first director, J. Edgar Hoover served under Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon. That represents both political parties, and both conservative and liberal governments. If the president commits a high crime or misdemeanor, it is the job of the Congress to address that. A sitting president cannot be arrested but an impeachment trial could remove him from office.

    Except for the director, no positions in the FBI are political appointments, but career civil service. Because it was widely thought that Hoover abused his powers, the maximum term of director is now limited to 10 years. In theory, the director would take advice and direction from the Attorney General, who sits on the presidents cabinet. The FBI does investigate cases of political corruption, including members of Congress and the president should the occasion arise. However remember that the rule of law applies, and in the United States, there are few political corruption statutes on the books. Congress is not dumb.

    Sure. Which you could be FBI and DEA. Just like a municipal officer can be move educated with the FBI/DEA and Marshals and get called out on special important points. In some locations that you can be move knowledgeable with Blue Lightning which is US Customs and Border Patrol
