568-page IG report is at the end of an 18-month investigation; chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reports from the Ministry of justice.
The justice Department inspector General, five FBI has referred to-staff for the investigation, revealed in his report about the Hillary Clinton E-Mail in the event that more bureau officials, were thought of as before, the exchange of anti-Trump-messages.
The long-awaited report largely dealt with the Ministry of justice and the FBI dealing with the Clinton case, but covered many of the messages “appeared to mix political opinion with the discussion on the MYE study.”
MYE, or “half-test”, the code in which the FBI refers to the investigation of the Clinton’s private E-Mail server.
“Some of these text messages, and instant messages mixed political comments with discussions about the half-year investigation, and concerns that political bias may have influenced the investigative decisions,” the report read.
The report found that they are especially concerned about text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa page, that “may be displayed, or created the appearance that the investigative decisions were influenced by bias or improper considerations.”
Strzok and the page were engaged, both served for a short time on Special Counsel Robert Müller Russia investigation group. Strzok has been assigned according to the revelation of his anti-Trump texts. Page back to the last month entered.
But, while many of these texts were sworn from the public by the end of 2017 from the IG report, according to a new, in the Strzok, “stop” Trump he was President and made it clear that as many as five FBI employees exchanged politically explosive news. “The text messages and instant messages sent by these employees included statements of hostility toward then-candidate Trump and statements of support for candidate Clinton,” the report said.
The report revealed that instant messages between the unnamed agent, called “Agent 1” and “Agent 5,” about their jobs in August 2016.
“I think anyone who likes to be [in this work], an absolute f—ing idiot. If you don’t think so, ask them a further question. Who are you voting for? I guarantee you, it will be sent to Donald Drumpf,” Agent 1.
“I forgot drumpf…the answer is sad and pathetic, if you want to vote for him,” Agent 5. “Who does not answer a question. Who is not professional even for a second.”
In September, Agent 1 and 5 talked again, bashing trump supporters remained as a “back.”
“I’m trying to think, ‘would I rather’ instead of spending time with those people, the” Agent 5.
Agent 1 asked, “keep your tongue in a fan??”
Agent 5 wrote later: “I would prefer to have brunch with trump and a few of his followers from ohio, and the disabled”
The report does not, however, find clues the fact that the political opinions of FBI officials to the decisions in the Clinton investigation.
“There were clearly tensions and disagreements in a number of important areas between half of the year, agents and prosecutors. We don’t have, but in the documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, are directly affected, the specific investigative decisions…,” the report read. “Nevertheless, this news cast a cloud over the FBI’s handling of the half-year investigation, and the investigation of the credibility.”
Further, the report said that while it found no evidence the views of affected investigative decisions,” five employees” have been referred for investigation, whether the messages violate the FBI code.
“The FBI is the handling of these recommendations, according to the FBI disciplinary investigation and adjudication processes, and is subject to disciplinary measures as justified,” the report read.
It is unclear what was called the five FBI employees, for the investigation.
An FBI spokesman for Fox News said on Thursday they were able to comment on the names of the five employees, the above-mentioned studies.
The IG report included a new text of a conversation between Strzok and page of August 2016. Page texted Strzok would you stop Trump from becoming President.
“[The trombone] not to ever become President, right? Right?!” Page texted Strzok.
“No. No he is not. We will finish it,” Strzok answered.
These texts, which “caused [OIG] to the question of the previous half-year investigative decisions, in which he was involved, and whether or not he took certain actions in the half-year investigation based on his political views,” the report read.
In a statement to Fox News, Strzok lawyer, Aitan Goelman Strzok defended the work of the FBI.
“After a year-long investigation, that a review of millions of messages and interviews of dozens of witnesses, the IG concluded that there is no evidence that the political views of Special Agent Strzok and others in the FBI influenced the handling of the Clinton-E-Mail investigation,” Goelman said in a statement, “As the report notes, Special Agent Strzok, in particular, was consistently thorough and aggressive, sometimes to the point of put him in conflict with officials of the Department of Justice.”
Goelman added: “While experts and politicians are using this issue to promote their agendas, the truth about Special Agent Strzok character and professionalism is in the fact that all witnesses requested by the OIG said that Strzok work was never marked by political views. His devotion to the unbiased service is a fact, that would be, generally, of the thousands of people who have worked with Pete during his 26 years of service in the FBI, and the U.S. army.”
The report also shows that an FBI-assigned attorney, the special counsel’s team found, sent political FBINet you instant messages charged to other FBI officials.
The FBI employees sent messages such as: “As I have initiated the destruction of the Republic…Would you be so kind, a Cup of coffee with me this afternoon?”
Another instant message read: “I’m holding on to small pockets of happiness in a dark time, the destruction of the Republic.”
The report does not reveal that FBI officials the names, but did state that the official worked with both the Clinton E-Mail investigation and the Russia-probe.
