Trump shook Washington when he called out, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for his inactivity, yet again. This time the President had one target in mind – Bruce Ohr. The man with a highly inappropriate relationship with the author of the Steele Dossier and apparent bias against President Trump.
“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? A total joke!” Trump tweeted.
According to The Hill, Trump has targeted Ohr as part of a broader effort to retaliate against key figures involved in the Russia probe, which is examining ties between his campaign and Moscow’s interference in the 2016 election.
The president has already revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan, who briefed Trump on the dossier’s findings and later became a vocal Trump critic.
Bruce Ohr had a close relationship with Steele, who was commissioned by Fusion GPS to create and disseminate the dossier about President Trump’s relationship with Russia. Fusion GPS was hired in part by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Republican lawmakers are convinced that Bruce Ohr acted inappropriately when he passed along Steele’s information to the FBI, even after the bureau had ended its relationship with Steele due to media leaks.
Bruce Ohr was not also forthcoming about his wife’s job with Fusion GPS and ties to the dossier.
Trump and his GOP allies have said the use of the dossier by the FBI shows bias atop the bureau, The Washington Examiner reported.
Over time, the evidence of deep state bias involving the FISA Warrant and Steele Dossier has completely discredited the Mueller investigation. To the point that you have to wonder why it’s still ‘on’ when they had nothing from the start.
Lisa Page’s own testimony solidified that fact when she told witnesses that the FBI had no evidence of collusion prior to Mueller joining the hunt. Yet still, Mueller has not produced any credible evidence of Russia colluding with the Trump campaign – to date. Calling this anything other than a witch hunt is a disgrace.
When asked about her text message with her alleged lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, that read “There is no there there” Page explained:
“It’s a reflection of us still not knowing,” Page told Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) when questioned about texts she and Strzok exchanged in May 2017 as Robert Mueller was being named special counsel to take over the Russia investigation.
With that statement, Page acknowledged a momentous fact: After nine months of using some of the most awesome surveillance powers afforded to U.S. intelligence, the FBI still had not made a case connecting Trump or his campaign to Russia’s election meddling.
Page opined further, acknowledging “it still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing” to connect Trump and Russia, no matter what Mueller or the FBI did.
So again, what leg do they even have to stand on? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
