The Justice Department's internal watchdog found that former FBI Director James Comey's actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation deviated from the department's norms but that Comey was not motivated by political bias, according to two sources familiar with the report.
Trump has criticized Strzok and Page on Twitter and even former FBI Director Comey, who Trump fired, said he understood the president's concerns.
The 500-page document focused on the FBI's handling of the investigation of Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
On Thursday, the inspector general - the Justice Department's watchdog - issued a stinging report on the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation and other actions leading up to the 2016 election.
Horowitz is also expected to provide a frank assessment of how former FBI Director James Comey ignored longstanding departmental norms at key moments in the Clinton probe.
The 500-page report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz suggests anti-Clinton leaking from the bureau's NY office likely influenced Comey's decision to announce the resumption of the email probe less than two weeks before the presidential election-a step that may have thrown the race to Trump.
"No he won't", Strzok texted to Page, according to a highly anticipated report released today by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
The inspector general says he did not follow regulations.
It was also unhappy with his decision, against the recommendation of the Justice Department, to reveal to Congress that the FBI was reopening the investigation following the discovery of new emails. The messages were exchanged prior to the formation of Mueller's team and the election. It will look at how the nonpartisan law enforcement agency became entangled in the 2016 presidential campaign.

But the president insisted the USA was leaving no stone unturned in its preparations, while warning that patience was needed. That's what I do. "I don't want to waste his time". "We appreciated it", Mr.
"No. No he won't".
Strzok replied, "No. No he won't".
The exchange likely will pique the interest of Trump, who has slammed the Clinton probe for being rigged in her favor.
The valid, nonpolitical lesson arising from the inspector general's report is that the FBI needs to be better prepared to handle politically sensitive investigations.
"That is deeply troubling", Rosenstein wrote in his recommendation to Trump. The inspector general found that the conclusion not to prosecute Ms. Clinton was legitimate but that the public spectacle was not.
He added: "So, the Democrats make up a phony crime, Collusion with the Russians, pay a fortune to make the crime sound real, illegally leak (Comey) classified information so that a Special Councel will be appointed, and then Collude to make this pile of garbage take on life in Fake News!".
The White House said the report confirmed Mr Trump's "suspicions" about Mr Comey and about the "political bias among some of the members of the FBI".
Comey was also criticized for not contacting Lynch or then Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates directly about sending a letter to Congress on October 28, 2016, regarding the decision to reopen the investigation because of newly-discovered emails.
