"The Inspector General report that came out last week ripped me".
"And then we get to August 8, 2016 - less than two weeks after the Russian Federation investigation even began, the lead FBI agent says he will stop Trump from becoming president", the SC lawmaker said. The texts Strzok and Page exchanged have been on the radars of many. "Because they work for the general counsel", he said.
The IG report found the "messages cast a cloud over the FBI's handling" of the email investigation - but there is no proof that political bias influenced federal prosecutors' decision not to prosecute Clinton.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Tuesday outed two previously unidentified anti-Trump, pro-Hillary FBI investigators who were referred for investigation by the inspector general.

Goelman said in a previous interview that Strzok disputes that he would have been willing to use his official position to hurt Trump, noting that had he wanted to, he could have leaked that there was an investigation into Trump's campaign before the election. "The OIG's Cyber Investigations Office recovered this text message, along with others, in May 2018 through forensic analysis of a folder found on Page's and Strzok's Samsung S5 devices".
"I was not talking about anything remotely classified and the inspector general didn't say that as well", Comey said.
"I'd like to get it done, our part over to them by July 4", he said, but added that developments at the Justice Department could lead him to advise the president to hold off.
