Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], June 15 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump on Friday slammed two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials who exchanged text messages criticising him during the 2016 election.
President Trump took to Twitter and mentioned an exchange of text messages, between FBI agent Peter Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page where they discussed to "stop" him (Trump) from becoming the President.
"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. Doesn't get any lower than that!" Trump tweeted.

In another tweet, he said, "The IG Report is a total disaster for Comey, his minions and sadly, the FBI. Comey will now officially go down as the worst leader, by far, in the history of the FBI. I did a great service to the people in firing him. Good Instincts. Christopher Wray will bring it proudly back!"

The text was disclosed in a report issued by the United States Justice Department's inspector general on Thursday with respect to the case of former US Secretary of States Hillary Clinton's mail server.
As per the Fox news, the report drafted by Horowitz retrieved new text messages exchanged between agent Peter Strzok, and FBI lawyer Lisa Page who are considered to be in a relationship.
The report mentioned the texts to be 'disappointing' and said it could lead to the questioning of the integrity of the 2016 Clinton probe.
Further, a slew of anti-Trump messages were found to be exchanged between the two via government devices. One of them was about Strzok vowing to 'stop' Trump from being elected just months before the presidential election.
On August 8, 2016, Page had sent a message to Strzok asking "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" and Strzok replied "No. No he won't. We'll stop it." (ANI)
