Hillary Clinton has blamed James Comey for shaking up the 2016 election in the final stretch
Although the report issued Thursday by Inspector General Michael Horowitz doesn't deal directly with Mueller's inquiry into Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 US election and possible collusion with those around Trump, the president and his Republican allies in Congress were primed to seize on it as evidence of poor judgment and anti-Trump bias within the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department.
"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".
The almost 500-page report released Thursday was especially harsh on senior Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok, who exchanged a trove of text messages with an Federal Bureau of Investigation colleague in the months before the presidential election.
Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said he was "deeply troubled" by these missives, including one text exchange in which a senior Federal Bureau of Investigation official asks: Trump's "not ever going to become president, right?"
Trump taunted Strzok's text saying he wanted to "stop" the president.
Trump also alleged that Comey gave a clean chit to Hillary Clinton, his rival in the presidential election. "It was a den of thieves", he said.
In a New York Times opinion piece released after the report, Mr Comey said he disagreed with some conclusions but respected the watchdog's work.

Still, Kent Desormeaux's tentative ride on Big Brown - the jockey pulled up the uninjured horse in the stretch - was baffling. All Spring I was entralled with a horse who had run once or twice in his life, but had shown remarkable talent on the track.
The report looked at how the FBI handled its investigation into Clinton's email practices and whether she mishandled classified information through an unofficial, private email account. Page and Strzok were romantically involved and used their work phones to engage in long-running text discussions of various work and personal topics, according to people familiar with the case. Doesn't get any lower than that!
Trump said Friday, as he has before, that the Mueller probe, too, "has been totally discredited". "I beat Bush dynasty, and now I guess hopefully I'm in the process of beating very dishonest intelligence", Trump said.
Among Comey's missteps during the Clinton email investigation was his decision in July 2016 to publicly call for Clinton's exoneration before the probe had concluded; followed by his revelation to Congress weeks before the election that the FBI had reopened its investigation.
Comey made an appearance at the MSP Airport Thursday.
