One of the two top former FBI officials accused of improper bias against then-candidate Donald Trump reportedly even suggested they could “stop” Trump from becoming president, according to newly revealed text messages in the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report on the Hillary Clinton private email server investigation.
“Several FBI employees Who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages,” IG report says.
It cites Lisa Page text to Peter Strzok: “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Former FBI lawyer and aide Lisa Page wrote to ex-FBI investigator Peter Strzok a seemingly distressed message, according to Bloomberg News on Thursday. The media outlet obtained an early copy of the report that’s expected to be released later in the afternoon. “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok.
Strzok replied: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
