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

President Donald Trump's recent target for criticism in the Department of Justice, lawyer Bruce Ohr, told Congress this week he had heard that Russian Federation had Trump "over a barrel" during the 2016 election, according to a new report from the Associated Press citing multiple unnamed sources.

Trump has recently begun targeting Ohr, urging that he be removed from the Justice Department. Ohr will be interviewed as part of an investigation into decisions made by the department in 2016.

He argued she was paid a lot of money to gather opposition research on his campaign while she worked for Fusion GPS -the firm behind the discredited Steele dossier.

"Bruce was a boss at the Department of Justice and is, unbelievably, still there!"

Gallup Indian Health Services received 37 of the injured, said Jennifer Buschick, a spokeswoman for the Gallup hospital. A motorist who came upon the scene described it as chaotic as passengers were on the ground and people were screaming.

The official, Bruce Ohr, says he learned that information during a July 2016 breakfast with former British spy Christopher Steele.

By the time the Federal Bureau of Investigation received the dossier the agency had already started its probe of Russian interference in the campaign, which the Kremlin denies.

According to the Times, Ohr and Steele first discussed flipping Deripaska in November 2014.

The details of the exchange were confirmed to The Associated Press by multiple people. The investigation's lead agent, Peter Strzok, told lawmakers last month that "it was not Mr. Ohr who provided the initial documents that I became aware of in mid-September".

But the mood in South Africa today is that indeed land should be expropriated without compensation. She said: "In these cases I have to consider the merits of each application to have the bell".

One of the meetings he recounted was a Washington breakfast attended by Steele, a Steele associate and Ohr. Ohr couldn't recall in his testimony who the associate was, the source said, but he knew it was not Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson. But the investigation was opened because of conversations involving former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, and not the dossier, FBI and congressional officials have said.

In December 2017, Ohr was reassigned from his job in the deputy attorney general's office and given new responsibilities.

Ironically, one of the sources said Weissmann was kept "in the loop" on the fraudulent dossier while he was head of the criminal fraud division.

Sessions and Rosenstein, Ohr was told, didn't want him in the post because it entailed White House meetings and interactions, the people said.
