    Actually, the Inspector General’s report did not find that FBI agents vowed to stop Trump from getting elected. The report found that mixing personal political views with work was inappropriate. One could ascertain this by…actually reading the report, rather than a FOX News story.
    “We do not question that the FBI employees who sent these messages are entitled to their own political views. However, we believe using FBI devices to send the messages discussed in Chapter Twelve—particularly the messages that intermix work-related discussions with political commentary—potentially implicate provisions in the FBI’s Offense Code and Penalty Guidelines. At a minimum, we found that the employees’ use of FBI systems and devices to send the identified messages demonstrated extremely poor judgment and a gross lack of professionalism.”
    The report finds that the agent who sent the text message did not use his government position to stop Trump from getting elected.
    In reality, the report faults James Comey for publicizing the “new” investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails via Anthony Weiner’s computer, which incidentally happened at the same time that the FBI declared there was no link between Trump and Russia, which we know to be demonstrably false. This does not exactly paint a picture of an organization lined up to defeat Donald Trump.
