Two FBI staffers who used to work for special counsel Robert Mueller didn't only trash President Donald Trump — they also reportedly dissed Chelsea Clinton, Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder and current AG Jeff Sessions.

The Wall Street Journal reported these new revelations were unearthed in the more than 300 text messages between Peter Strzok, a senior counterintelligence agent, and lawyer Lisa Page that were part of 90 pages of Justice Department documents handed over to Congress Tuesday.

The pair called then-candidate Trump "an idiot," "douche" and "terrifying" — remarks the presidents allies say call the whole Mueller probe into question, the Journal noted.

But the texts also showed that Strzok detested Congress, called presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders. I-Vt., an "idiot," suggested the death penalty was appropriate for NSA secrets-leaker Edward Snowden, described Chelsea Clinton as "self-entitled," and thought House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., was "jerky."

In one text, he wrote: "I'm worried about what happens if HRC is elected." He didn't elaborate.

For her part, Page described Sanders's supporters as "idiots," and said a Republican presidential candidate has "long been suspected of being gay." She said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., looked like a "turtle," and agreed that a well-known reporter was "schlubby."

Strzok didn't like Holder, texting one day that he'd been sitting in front of a portrait of Attorney General Elliot Richardson, who resigned in 1973 rather than fire the special prosecutor during Watergate in what law enforcement officials believe was a heroic act.

"It's next to the portrait of Eric Holder, which is wildly offensive," Strzok wrote.

And when Holder spoke at the Democratic National Convention, Strzok texted: "Oh God, Holder! Turn it off turn if off!!!"

When they learned that Sessions was going to be the next attorney general, Page wrote: "Good god."
