CUPERTINO (CNET) – Turns out that the FBI did a background check on Steve Jobs in 1991, when he was considered for an appointment on George H. W. Bush’s President’s Export Council.

According to the report, there were concerns about Jobs’ past drug use and his lack of support for his eldest child, who was born out of wedlock. Jobs died in October after a long fight with pancreatic cancer.

You can read the report here. We’ve pulled a few paragraphs of the information, which you can read below.

Reading through the early pages, we know that Jobs wasn’t a communist or wasn’t connected to any group that wanted to overthrow the government. They really asked him that. According to the Council’s Web site, the group is the “principal national advisory committee on international trade.”
