An FBI agent at the center of a text messaging controversy linked to the Russia investigation told a colleague they would "stop" Donald Trump from winning the 2016 presidential election, according to newly revealed text messages/

According to Bloomberg's White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs, FBI agent Peter Strzok — who worked on both the Hillary Clinton email investigation and the Russia probe before being removed from the latter last year— had this text exchange on Aug. 8, 2016, with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom he was reportedly having an affair:

Page: Trump's "not ever going to become president, right? Right?!"

Strzok: "No. No he's not. We'll stop it."

Hundreds of messages between the two have been made public in recent months, and many of them show that they were opposed to Trump winning the presidency. The message have raised questions of whether there was a conspiracy to prevent Trump from winning and/or frame him for having ties to Russia.

The newest messages are included in a report by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz released Thursday.

The report found that former FBI director James Comey broke from normal FBI procedures during the Clinton email probe but did not show any outward signs of political bias.
