“Several FBI employees Who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages,” the report reads, according to Jacobs.
“(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok, Bloomberg reports.
“No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,” Strzok reportedly replied.

The long-anticipated IG report was obtained by Bloomberg News and contained previously unrevealed text messages between Strzok and Page. The FBI pair were intimately involved in the counter-intelligence investigation of the Trump 2016 campaign. Strzok and Page have drawn criticism previously for anti-Trump text messages.
The report, according to Bloomberg, however found that “we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed.”
