The FBI has released its files on the late Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of Apple, who apparently was a questionable character in the eyes of colleagues and the law enforcement agency.

 
As part of a freedom of information request the FBI uploaded files to its website, which it collected on Jobs during an investigation into his character when he was being considered for a presidential appointment by George H. W. Bush to a position as advisor on export policy.
 
The files show that several people questioned Jobs' honesty and morality. The FBI interviewed a number of people who worked with him and found that he would twist the truth to achieve his goals. Other people said he was honesty and trustworthy, but suggested he had moral issues.
 
The documents also show that Jobs was difficult to work with, a fact backed up by details in his biography released last year.

Other details in the files include Jobs' experimentation with drugs in the 1970s, particularly LSD, which he claimed was one of the few important things he did in his life. It's unclear if this drug use was what some meant by his questionable morality or if there were more alleged skeletons in his closet.
 
His conversion to Buddhism was also documented, though we're not sure whether or not the FBI saw any significance to this in relation to their investigation.
 
Despite the questions raised over his character he secured to post Bush Senior wanted him for in 1991. The position did not involve any financial payment.
 
The files also show that Jobs was on the receiving end of a bomb threat in 1985, which was designed to extort money.
