FBI agents on Russia probe called Trump an 'idiot', 'loathsome human being'

The GOP, he said in one exchange, "needs to pull their head out of their ass".

Strzok was removed from the investigation and Page had already been removed from her assignment to Mueller, Politico reports.

On March 16, 2016, Page texted Strzok: "I cannot believe Donald Trump is likely to be an actual, serious candidate for president". "I LOATHE Congress, " Strzok texted Page on June 22, 2016. The matter is now an ongoing investigation by the inspector general's office, the FBI said.

That same month, Strzok wrote that he's "worried about what happens if [Clinton] is elected, " though he doesn't explain his concern. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) bumper sticker in 2015, he responded by saying, "He's an idiot like Trump. Made me want to key the vehicle".

"He's an idiot like Trump", Strzok replied, according to USA Today. "Figure they cancel each other out". FBI Director Christopher Wray was questioned at length last week about Strzok and lawmakers have signaled similar plans for Rosenstein.

The contents of the communications are only likely to intensify those criticisms Wednesday, especially the agent's repeated slamming of Trump. Strzok then says Mr. Trump is "awful" and "an idiot".

"America will get what the voting public deserves", Strzok said last March.

Strzok then added: "Good for Hillary, " to which Page replied: "It is".

Strzok also texted that "Hillary should win 100,000,000 - 0".

In November, the WashPost reported: "Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns - including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation".

Sessions has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate Republican members' various requests for a special counsel, but has not made any decisions yet. Moscow has denied interfering in the election and Trump has denied any collusion.

A US District Court judge ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Tuesday to turn over any potential evidence that could be material for when he sentences President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

The news about Strzok's move came just one day after Mueller's team announced it had reached a deal with Flynn.

Flynn has agreed to cooperate with Mueller's investigation.

In a statement released on December 2, Sessions said the allegations that Strzok sent anti-Trump communications "would raise serious questions of public trust" if proven to be true.
