Pres. Trump Accuses Bruce, Nellie Ohr Of Colluding With Russia

  • Justice Department official Bruce Ohr

Justice Department official Bruce Ohr told lawmakers this week that former British spy Christopher Steele said Russian intelligence officials believed they had President Trump "over a barrel," The Associated Press reported Friday.

"Wow, Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr's wife, is a Russia expert who is fluent in Russian", he tweeted Thursday.

The July 30, 2016, meeting between Steele and Ohr came one day before the FBI officially opened its counterintelligence investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Ohr's outreach about the dossier - as well as its author, ex-British spy Christopher Steele, the opposition research firm behind it, Fusion GPS, and his wife Nellie Ohr's work for Fusion - took place before and after the Federal Bureau of Investigation fired Steele as a source over his media contacts, Fox News reported.

Two sources familiar with the dossier told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Ohr had no role in its compilation.

"Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions "Justice" Department?".


One of the meetings he recounted was a Washington breakfast attended by Steele, a Steele associate and Ohr.

Fusion GPS is a company that used funding from Democrats to compile the Steele dossier.

Convicted felon and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was also mentioned in the report.

In the interview, Ohr acknowledged he had not told his superiors about his meetings with Steele because he deemed the information inflammatory raw source material.

He also provided new details about the department's move to reassign him once his Steele ties were brought to light.

Mr. Ohr told lawmakers that Mr. Steele informed him that key Trump campaign aide Carter Page had met with higher-ranking Russian Intelligence officials than he previously indicated. They said he was being stripped of his associate deputy attorney post as part of a planned internal reorganization that would have occurred anyway, people familiar with Ohr's account say.
