A bombshell new report from Sara A. Carter finds the FBI and DOJ signaled a surprising “willingness” to damage the Trump campaign and presidency during and after the 2016 race for the White House.
“Former FBI Director James Comey was blasted by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s office for his actions during the bureau’s ‘midyear’ investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business and the investigation found evidence that other members of the FBI deliberately took official action in an attempt to keep President Donald Trump from holding elected office,” writes Carter.
“One of the most damming pieces of evidence was a never before seen text message from embattled FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok to his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page where he suggests that he will not allow Trump to become president,” she adds.
In Horowitz’s report he stated that Strzok’s texts and actions are “not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.”

DOJ Searching Trove of Texts from Anti-Trump Agent
The Department of Justice is rummaging through “over 10,000 texts” between the FBI agent recently demoted from Robert Mueller’s investigation for his “anti-Trump bias” and his counterparts at the special counsel’s office.
DOJ officials tell Fox News they’re currently sifting through 10,000 text exchanges to determine the extent of Strzok’s bias, and whether his personal opinions of President Trump impacted his ability to impartially conduct his investigation.
Peter Strzok was secretly re-assigned to the FBI’s Human Resources Department earlier this year after Robert Mueller was informed of his Trump-hating text exchanges with other investigators.
The revelation of anti-Trump operatives inside the special counsel’s office prompted an immediate response from GOP leaders and officials; questioning Mueller’s ability to properly investigate allegations of Russian-Trump collusion throughout the 2016 presidential race.
They’re not the only ones.
The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board published a scathing op-ed piece on Thursday, citing the text exchanges and other mistakes as irreparably damaging the special counsel’s office and demanding Mueller’s immediate resignation from the investigation.
CLINTON COLLUSION: Texts Show FBI Agents ‘PULLED PUNCHES’ in Hillary’s Email Probe
Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley sent a scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray Thursday, demanding answers after newly released texts show the bureau was “pulling punches” from Hillary Clinton’s email probe as early as February 2016.
Grassley’s fired-off the incendiary memo to the FBI chief after the Department of Justice magically found five months’ worth of text messages exchanged between anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page.
One particular message stunningly suggests that the agency was going easy on the former Secretary of State; saying the FBI was aware that she would likely “be our next President” and would “remember” those involved in the investigation of her use of a private email server to handle classified material.
“One more thing: she might be our next president. The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear. You think she’s going to remember or care that it was more doj than fbi?” asked Page on February 25, 2016.
“Agreed,” replied Strzok. “I called Bill and relayed what we discussed. He agrees. I will email you and [redacted] same.”
According to the Daily Caller, “Bill” is most likely a reference to Bill Priestap, the FBI’s head of counter-intelligence.
“Has the FBI performed any voluntary searches of Strzok or Page’s non-government phones or email accounts to determine whether federal records exist? Please explain why or why not?” asked Grassley.
