AI is a mind-lever, as opposed to an independent consciousness. Beware not the pawnish Terminators but (the mindset of) the chiefs of Skynet.
Push-AI gets programmed (eg by rules or training data/regimes). But pull-AI (adapt-to-thrive bots) in the political world becomes whatever thrives best in that world. Like scaremongering and threat-creation. Like human politicians, just amplified. Oh, we already have one.
