The Inspector General report on their investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation has been revealed.
Apparently, former FBI Director James Comey did not follow proper protocol, but IG Michael Horowitz said he did not have a political bias. Michael Horowitz has previously recommended prosecution of Andrew McCabe, so Horowitz is generally seen as an unbiased actor.
However, there was a glaring bombshell in the Inspector General’s report that is making many people call this decision into question. A text exchange between former FBI agents, and lovers, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page seems to be a smoking gun.
Lisa Page: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
Peter Strzok: “No. No he won’t. We’ll Stop it.”
Yes, a high ranking FBI agent working on the investigation of one of the presidential candidates actually said “We’ll stop it” referring to Donald Trump being elected president.
Previously, the public and members of Congress knew about the text from Lisa Page. However, the text from Strzok had been redacted.
If not for political reasons, THEN WHY?
Lawmakers and pundits are questioning the validity of this report, and the greater extent to which the FBI has been corrupted.
Strzok text is extraordinary evidence of attempted targeting — and the DOJ's refusal to turn it over to Congress is just as extraordinary. The American public are right to be deeply skeptical of this investigation. Mueller had better have something incredible.

Congressman Mark Meadows said “This Peter Strzok text about “stopping” Donald Trump was hidden from Congressional investigators. We never had it. Absolutely unreal.”

The FBI’s investigation Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of government emails and sensitive information has been called into question from the start.
The Inspector General’s investigation into the FBI’s handling of this probe was supposed to clear up these questions. However, the conclusion that there was no political bias, while the FBI was trying to stop a candidate from becoming President has simply created more skepticism.
