What exactly was Justice Department official Bruce Ohr worried about being exposed? Nobody knows…yet. However, his email to the man behind the unverified “Steele dossier,” the misinformation fan fiction hand-delivered by the Kremlin to the Clinton Campaign, made clear that Ohr was “very concerned about Comey’s firing – afraid they will be exposed.” It has already been revealed by now fired FBI agent Peter Strzok that “the FBI received documents and materials from Mr. Ohr.” The FBI also used this unverified dossier as the basis for surveillance warrants against a presidential candidate. Perhaps it’s time the DOJ appointed another special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor.
Here’s more from Fox News…
A collection of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s emails, texts and handwritten notes, reviewed by Fox News, reveals that he was deeply connected to the unverified Steele dossier as well as its author and, during the presidential election campaign, the alleged government surveillance abuses involving a Trump campaign official.
The dossier, which was used by federal officials to justify the surveillance of a top Trump aide, Carter Page, was created by Fusion GPS and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Ohr wrote that Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy who wrote the salacious dossier, was “very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey’s firing — afraid they will be exposed.”
The Ohr documents shed more light on Steele’s activities before the presidential election. While Steele shopped the dossier to multiple media outlets, he also appeared to ask Ohr for help with a Russian oligarch — Oleg Deripaska — after rumors the U.S. might impose sanctions.
