Ohr the messenger boy

Sara CarterJustice Department official Bruce Ohr had contact in 2016 with Andrew Weissmann, now a top Robert Mueller deputy, as well as other senior FBI officials about the anti-Trump dossier, two sources tell Fox News.

Catherine Herridge, in a report on writes that 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 Simpson’s 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.

The news significance of this is that Steele was feeding Ohr info from Steele's unknown sources well into the Trump presidency, and Ohr was passing it right along to Weissmann, who was highly placed on Mueller's staff, despite Ohr knowing Steele was an untrustworthy source. The "insurance policy" was Mueller's special counsel operation all along. An operation to depose a President by turning his own Department of Justice against him.

That's a coup, remember. Or, treason.
