Skip to comments.DOJ's Bruce Ohr kept Mueller deputy 'in the loop' about anti-Trump dossier, sources say
Posted on 08/30/2018 7:06:33 PM PDT by TigerClaws
Embattled Justice Department official Bruce Ohr had contact in 2016 with then-colleague Andrew Weissmann, who is now a top Robert Mueller deputy, as well as other senior FBI officials about the controversial anti-Trump dossier and the individuals behind it, two sources close to the matter told Fox News.
The sources said Ohr's outreach about the dossier as well as its author, ex-British spy Christopher Steele; the opposition research firm behind it, Glenn Simpsons Fusion GPS; and his wife Nellie Ohr's work for Fusion occurred before and after the FBI fired Steele as a source over his media contacts. Ohr's network of contacts on the dossier included: former FBI agent Peter Strzok; former FBI lawyer Lisa Page; former deputy director Andrew McCabe; Weissmann and at least one other DOJ official; and a current FBI agent who worked with Strzok on the Russia case.
Weissmann was kept "in the loop" on the dossier, a source said, while he was chief of the criminal fraud division. He is now assigned to Special Counsel Muellers team. Federal prosecutors Andrew Weissman (L) and Leslie Caldwell smile outside federal court in Houston June 15, 2002 after a jury found the Andersen accounting firm guilty of obstructing justice in an investigation of its client, Enron Corporation. The 12-member jury, which heard nearly five weeks of testimony before U.S. District Judge Melinda Harmon, found Andersen criminally intended to keep Enron audit records away from a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry.

I don’t think the DOJ will EVER regain any respectability.

30 Aug: Daily Caller: Here Is Who Bruce Ohr Did And Did Not Tell About His Dossier Contacts
by Chuck Ross
Sources familiar with Ohrs testimony before the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Ohr informed Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page about his interactions with Steele and Simpson. He also informed Justice Department prosecutor Andrew Weissmann about his dossier-related work...
Ohr kept Muller’s deputy Wiessmann informed about progress on anti-Trump dossier. And he is an investigator for evidence of collusion?
Somehow they recovered after McCarthy. But they are back to the same crap again.
I think they just need to have a policy every 10 years everyone is fired and can no longer work in law enforcement.
Gee, you mean Mueller and his entire team of inquisitors Colluded with the Russians??
This just broke tonight on Hannity - this is big.
Where is the rope??
Nothing but an inner circle coup.
On more straw on the camels back.
The only way to clear up this messy saga is for Trump to immediately declassify all documentswithout redactionsrelating to the Mueller investigation, the FISA court warrants, the Clinton email investigation, and CIA and FBI involvement with the dossier, and the use of informants.
Second, there needs to be another special counsel to investigate wrongdoing on the part of senior officials in these now nearly discredited agencies. The mandate should be to discover whether there was serial conflict of interest, chronic lying to federal officials, obstruction of justice, improper unmasking and leaking, misleading of federal courts, and violation of campaign finance laws.
It is past time to stop the stonewalling, the redacting, the suppression, the leaking to the press and the media hysteria. The government must turn over all relevant documents to two special counsels and free each to discover who did what in 2016.
The dossier was hatched within an attempted coup, undeniably. Being fully “in the loop” with the dossier means in the loop for the coup.
I’ll be curious to see if Weismann tries to distance himself from this description of being “in the loop”, if he can.
Handsome Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife. /s.
Both will look fabulous in Orange.
Given these revelations, if Jeff Sessions is not secretly working with Donald Trump he should be fired and prosecuted
