The bomb shell in the IG report is the undisclosed text from Strock “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” meaning Trump becoming President

Washington Examiner:
Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, both FBI officials who worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's federal Russia investigation, exchanged text messages about how they would "stop" candidate Donald Trump from becoming president.

"[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok, with whom she was having an extramarital affair, in August 2016, per Bloomberg News.

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

The newly revealed text messages are included in a highly anticipated report by the Justice Department's Office of Inspector General that details the watchdog's investigation into the DOJ and FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton emails investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign.
In a letter sent to Congress previewing the report, Horowitz said the Strzok-Page scandal hurt the FBI's standing because it gave the impression that federal agents were biased.
The story does not disclose who was responsible for withholding this text message from Congress.  The IG claims that it had no effect of the Mueller investigation.  I am not persuaded that is the case.  It looks like a prelude to that investigation.  Those responsible for withholding this text should be fired.

The IG claims that the Clinton investigation was not impacted by political bias.  I find that ruling hard to accept because there are no other rational reasons for not prosecuting her obvious violations of the law.

The FBI Director Christopher Wray is ordering "bias training."  That sounds like a weak response for what looks like treason.

Five FBI agents have been referred for investigation over "hostile" political messages.
