"President Obama thought that Crooked Hillary was going to win the election, so when he was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Russian Meddling, he said it couldn't happen, was no big deal, & did NOTHING about it", the president tweeted in July.
Peter Strzok, a longtime agent who once worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, was sacked by the FBI after he sent text messages criticizing President Donald Trump to a colleague. After leaving Mueller's investigation, Strzok was reassigned to human resources but was still employed by the bureau.
In one instance of bias, Horowitz cited this text exchange between Strzok and Page on August 8, 2016.
'At no time in any of these texts did those personal beliefs ever enter into the realm of any action I took, ' Strzok said.

Democrats, as well as Strzok's lawyer, have claimed that the attacks on Strzok are an attempt to undermine Mueller's probe, which is examining ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. The inspector general said the email, which included a draft of the search warrant affidavit, contained information that appeared to be under seal.
In a tweet today, Trump said Strzok "was in charge of the Witch Hunt".
