“Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” Page wrote.
“I can protect our country at many levels,” Strzok replied.
One message suggests that the pair and perhaps other more senior FBI officials were assessing Trump’s chances while at work.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok wrote to Page in August 2016.
Yet look at strzok alone. Look at the difference of the way he interviewed Huma, Mills, and Hillary vs. Flynn.
Look at how we know huma and mills were proven to lie to the FBI but let go, but Flynn and papadopolous were charged with that.
Look at how the podesta group got away with admittedly failing to register as a foreign lobbyist, but manafort wasnt.
"This man can not be president,"
The pair also took shots at other politicians, with Strzok calling former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley a “douche.”
Page speculated on Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s sexuality, saying he was “long suspected of being gay.”
The agents also don’t seem to have been fans of Attorney General Eric Holder.
“Oh God, Holder! Turn it off turn it off turn it off!!!!” Strzok wrote when Holder appeared at the Democratic National Convention in July 2016.
“Yeah, I saw him yesterday and booed at the TV,” Page replied.
But there are hints in the messages about the concern over Russian influence on the campaign, which was building in the final months of the election contest.
In July 2016, Page expressed concern that the “sandernistas” might undercut Clinton’s campaign.
“I’m not worried about them. I’m worried about the anarchist Assanges who will take fed information and disclose it to disrupt,” Strzok replied, referring to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who published emails hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta

Except corrupt politicos aren't whales (with the possible exception of Chris Christie) and the FBI isn't Green Peace. We expect law enforcement and prosecutors to act within the law to bring people to justice for crimes. Or no?

"So look, you say we can text on that phone when we talk about Hillary because it cant be traced,"
My bigger concern with bias is that the investigators don't act because of bias. Which is what's been insinuated about the Clinton email investigation, right? Isn't that a much bigger problem?
Clinton arrived with her legal entourage in tow. Attorneys David Kendall, Katherine Turner, Heather Samuelson, and Cheryl Mills flanked Clinton. On the government side of the conference room: FBI Section Chief Peter Strzok, David Laufman from the Justice Department, two unnamed DOJ representatives as well as the two confidential FBI agents conducting the interview.
