The Department of Justice inspector general report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation discovered extremely insulting comments about President Trump’s supporters from an employee of the FBI.
Fox News reports:
On the morning of Nov. 9, 2016, Attorney 2 messaged the employee: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”
The employee answered: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered,” an apparent reference to the FBI’s investigation of Clinton. When the attorney said: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum,” the employee answered: “That is not so.”
“All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out,” the employee wrote. “Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”
The negative comment was not the only time an FBI employee looked down on President Trump supporters.
A text message from FBI agent Peter Strzok to then FBI lawyer Lisa Page was also insulting.
Fox News reports:
Strzok – Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support…
Page – Yep. Out to lunch with (redacted) We both hate everyone and everything.
Page – Just riffing on the hot mess that is our country.
Strzok – Yeah…it’s scary real down here
FBI employees held a deep disdain for President Trump and his supporters.
President Trump sent a Tweet on the IG report:
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!
