DOJ Reveals More Anti-Trump Texts Between Page, Strzok

Among the revelations in the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report, which found former FBI Director James Comey “deviated” from procedure, were more shocking text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

According to The Washington Post, in one previously unreported message, Strzok, who worked on both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email case and the Russian collusion probe, assured Page in 2016 that “we’ll stop” then-candidate Trump from winning the election.

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page texted him.

“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” he responded.

According the report, which was first obtained by Bloomberg News, Horowitz still dismissed the idea that the pair let their personal opinions affect their actions in the investigation, but added they “cast a cloud” over the it:

We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed. […] The conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation.

Strzok and Page have come under fire on a number of occasions for text messages deriding Trump and lamenting his election. The texts drew ire from Trump supporters, who have called the FBI’s probe biased.

The president himself continued to rail against the ongoing Russia investigation on Thursday in a series of tweets:

Page resigned from her position with the FBI in May following the backlash, while special counsel Robert Mueller removed Strzok from the investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
