The long awaited inspector general report was released by the Justice Department today. Among the many shocking elements is a text message from FBI agent Peter Strzok saying “we’ll stop it” referring to the Trump presidency.

FBI Agent Running Russia Probe Vowed To Prevent Trump’s Election: ‘We’ll Stop It’
Among the bombshells found in the Justice Department’s inspector general report released today are previously unreported text messages between the romantically involved FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page promising to “stop” Donald Trump’s election as president.
“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok.
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok replied.
This text, sent on Aug. 8, 2016, was missing from the previously discovered batch of texts that DOJ provided to Congress. Roughly 50,000 messages were exchanged between the anti-Trump pair over the course of the election and Trump’s first year in office. A Justice Department spokesperson was unable to say why this text was missing from the previous disclosures, The Daily Caller reports.
How is it that Lisa Page's question ("Trump's not going to become president, right?") was leaked, but Peter Strzok's response ("No, we'll stop it") was not until now? And how is that not a massive deal?
My mind is boggled.
