A forthcoming report from the Justice Department's inspector general into the FBI's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails includes a text from agent Peter Strzok to his counterpart Lisa Page that states, "[w]e'll stop" Donald Trump from becoming president, per the Washington Post.

Yes, but: The report's ultimate conclusion, regarding Strzok and Page's interactions, is that it "did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed," per Bloomberg. However, the report also notes that "the conduct by these employees cast a cloud over the entire FBI investigation."
