1: it makes enforcement less subject too new or changing regulations. The FBI isn't a regulatory agency. So it would be less likely to have a group of people sitting around a table, wondering "How can we muck things up for the deplorables?"
2: I think the FBI also has the danger of becoming a super agency, that is getting all too sensitive to political pressures.They seem to let some people get away with all kinds of stuff. Yet,so willing to make scapegoats outa people for people that aren't kissing the right donkeys. I'm not sure I trust them anymore, and I don't know what Trump can do to improve our confidence. These days, I'm seeing lots of similarities to the old E. German Stasi. I would be willing to talk to any Local or Texas LEO about any investigation. But I would never have any conversation with any fed without a lawyer.
Comey made it plain that the FBI are no longer a non-political, impartial organization

Now that the precedent has been established, does anyone seriously think it will stop? Richard Nixon used the IRS to attack his political enemies. Then Clinton tried it. We've had 8 long years of an unrepentant Obama using the IRS to try and shut down conservative speech. Please tell me that the election of Trump will make the cancers in that
sick agency suddenly repent. No! They will keep their heads down and wait 4 or 8 years for their chance to help get a democrat government in power again and to keep it there. The IRS is the IRA to the democrats' Sinn Fein.
