It has been previously reported that Strzok was the individual who revised the draft of Comey's statement about the Clinton email investigation to remove the phrase "grossly negligent" and replaced it with the legally inert "extremely careless".
The report said Strzok's bias may have led to his prioritizing the investigation into the Trump campaign over the Clinton email investigation - and his lack of action in September and October 2016 when the FBI's office in NY found thousands of Hillary Clinton's emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, the husband of her top aide Huma Abedin.
A key finding: Comey erred in his decision not to coordinate with his superiors at the Justice Department at key moments in the Clinton email investigation.
Strzok and Page, who were having an affair with one another, exchanged a series of barbed anti-Trump text messages and emails.
The report notes, "We found further evidence that in some instances Strzok and Page advocated for more aggressive investigative measures in the Midyear investigation", which was the codename for the email probe. The FBI's actions and those of former Director Comey severely damaged the credibility of the investigation, the public's ability to rely on the results of the investigation, and the very institutions he claims to revere. "I think it will help us better fix any problems that we have and reassure the American people that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true".
Comey announced the Clinton investigation was being re-opened just days before the general election.
A May 2016 email from FBI investigator Peter Strzok shows the agency knew at that time some classified information had been hacked from Clinton's private server. The IG said text implied "a willingness [by Strzok] to take official action to impact a presidential candidate's electoral prospects", even if there was no evidence found that any such action was taken by either Strzok or Page. There are so many awful things to tell, the public has the right to know.
"Documents provided to the Committees show foreign actors obtained access to some of Mrs. Clinton's emails - including at least one email classified 'Secret, '" the memo says, adding that foreign actors also accessed the private accounts of some Clinton staffers...
The FBI's investigation of Clinton's email was perfectly reasonable and their conclusions were correct.
President Donald Trump is looking to the report to provide a fresh line of attack against two former top FBI officials, director James Comey and his deputy, Andrew McCabe, as he claims that a politically tainted bureau tried to undermine his campaign and, through the later Russian Federation investigation, his presidency.
Federal Bureau of Investigation officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page reportedly exchanged a text message saying "we'll stop" Donald Trump from becoming president. Trump is certain to try to use the report to validate his firing of Comey previous year.
Concerned about the "appearance that former President Clinton was influencing" the probe, Lynch began talking to her staff the next morning about possibly recusing herself from overseeing the investigation, according to the report. The special counsel is looking into whether Trump's firing of Comey in May 2017 was an effort by the president to obstruct justice by derailing the FBI's probe of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Comey has said had he had known more about the laptop earlier, it might have affected his decision to notify Congress.
