Fox News reported:

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz confirmed Tuesday that he is investigating whether FBI official Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump bias factored into the launch of the bureau’s Russia probe.

During a joint hearing before the House Oversight and Judiciary committees, Horowitz testified that his office was reviewing Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages as part of a separate probe related to the Russia investigation.

“It clearly shows a biased state of mind,” Horowitz said, referring to text messages written as the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email use was wrapping up and the Russia probe was getting underway.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., questioned Horowitz on whether that apparent bias influenced the initiation of the investigation into Russia interference in the 2016 campaign and potential collusion with Trump’s team.

“That’s a matter we’ve got under review and are looking at right now,” Horowitz said.

Of course Peter Strzok’s hatred for Trump impacted the launch of the Russia probe.

Trump-hating FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok sent his mistress Lisa Page a text message saying “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President.

This text message from Strzok was sent to Page 9 days after “Crossfire Hurricane” was opened and 6 days before the “insurance policy” text.

In another damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds 6 days after Strzok said he’ll “stop” Trump from becoming President, was a discussion about an “insurance policy” to keep Donald Trump out of office.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Andrew McCabe.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok added.

Other text exchanges reveal Strzok and Page had a ‘God complex’ as if they were put in their positions at the FBI to ‘protect the country from that menace’ (Trump).

Lisa Page previously text Strzok: “And maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace. PS – … I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps”

Strzok wanted to stop Trump so desperately he made sure Hillary Clinton did not get criminally referred for her private server during the election because she would then have to be replaced with another Democrat candidate.

Of course his bias impacted the launch of the Russia probe. It was the ‘insurance policy’ to prevent Trump from winning the White House. No one expected Trump to win so they extended the Russia probe by appointing a Special Counsel to remove a duly elected President.
