FBI Conducted Background Interviews on Steve Jobs for Presidential Appointment

By Allan Lengel

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was the FBI’s radar, but for a good reason.

He was being considered for an appointment on the President’s Export Council under George H.W. Bush, the Associated Press reports.

FBI conducted background interviews in 1991 which revealed “a man driven by power and alienating some of the people who worked with him,” the Associated Press reported.

AP reported that FBI documents released Thursday revealed that many who knew Jobs praised him for his character and said he conducted business in a reputable manner.
