President Donald Trump disputed findings by the Justice Department on Friday that former FBI Director James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe was not politically motivated, declaring that there was "total bias" at the FBI and that the "top people" at the agency were "plotting against my election".
The 500-page report also concluded that the Clinton email probe was not tainted by political bias, even though it was critical of two Federal Bureau of Investigation staff members who exchanged highly charged political messages over Trump, finding that their texts created the appearance of bias and cast cloud over the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
"FBI Agent Peter Strzok, who headed the Clinton & Russia investigations, texted to his lover Lisa Page, in the IG Report, that "we'll stop" candidate Trump from becoming President. It's like, we'll stop him with the power of the vote?" "It was a den of thieves".
Initially when Comey was sacked, the Trump administration presented the dismissal as related to his handling of the Clinton email probe.

But he also found that Comey did not exhibit political bias or try to influence the election, nor did Horowitz contest the decision not to charge Clinton with a crime. Strzok was removed from the Clinton and Trump investigations and demoted, yet remains employed by the FBI. Ms Page and Mr Strzok were romantically involved and used their work phones to engage in long-running text discussions of various work and personal topics, according to people familiar with the case.
Trump weighed in on the exchange on Twitter Friday morning, tweeting: "Doesn't get any lower than that!" The report says the attorney left that investigation in late February 2018, shortly after the inspector general provided Mueller with some of the instant messages they had discovered. However, Trump later said that he had the FBI's Russian Federation probe in mind when he dismissed Comey.
"I have never accused him of being a partisan".
"The report also resoundingly demonstrates that there was no prosecutable case against Mrs Clinton, as we had concluded", Comey wrote.
A few days before the election, on October 28, 2016, an unidentified lawyer assigned to the Clinton probe team referred to in the report as "FBI Attorney 2" said in messages to colleagues that he had "initiated the destruction of the Republic".
