On Friday, President Trump took aim at Strzok, pointing out his role in the Russian Federation probe. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"The IG Report is a total disaster for Comey, his minions and sadly, the FBI", Mr Trump wrote.

Strzok made his explosive comment to Page in August 2016.

"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", Trump tweeted.

While the president remained mum on the report's findings, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders offered the first reaction.

"When you read the report, it's nearly like Comey, he goes point after point about how guilty Hillary is, and then he said, 'But we're not going to do anything about it.' The IG report was a horror show, I thought that one line of conclusion was ridiculous", Trump said.

"I have the greatest supporters in the world, by the way they're the smartest, they're the hardest working, they pay taxes".

The report took Comey to task for publicly announcing in July 2016 that Clinton would not face charges, even as he accused her of mishandling classified information.

The report also found Strzok delayed immediately revealing the discovery of Clinton emails on the laptop computer of former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, then-husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin; found Lynch's airplane discussion with Bill Clinton not to be "inappropriate" but said that she failed "to recognize the appearance problem" and not "to cut the visit short was an error in judgment"; that former top Federal Bureau of Investigation official Andrew McCabe should have recused himself earlier from the Clinton probe because of his family's close ties with the Democratic Party; and that former President Barack Obama used a pseudonym for his contacts with Clinton on the private email server.

But the report also noted that Strzok was not the sole decision-maker and that he and Page sometimes advocated for more aggressive investigative steps than others in the Clinton investigation.

Wray said during a news conference Thursday that he takes the report "very seriously and we accept its findings and recommendations".

Strzok replied: "you and I both know the odds are nothing". It also faulted him for alerting Congress days before the 2016 election that the investigation was being reopened because of newly discovered emails.

The inspector general report is pretty clear on that front. The male agent was one of two agents who had interviewed Clinton for the investigation.

"People are calm and pleased to be arriving in Spain", the group said.

Both Strzok and Page acknowledged that some of their texts could be read as showing bias against Trump, but both insisted bias played no part in their work.

"But my emails", she said, reacting in a three-word tweet. If Trump wants to view people's partisanship as their only motive for doing their jobs, he loses that argument very quickly when it comes to the independent, FBI-backed investigation now looking into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and any possible collusion between his campaign and the Russians.
