Who is Bruce Ohr, who keeps appearing in Trump’s tweets?

Pres. Trump Accuses Bruce, Nellie Ohr Of Colluding With Russia Justice Department lawyer said Russia had Donald Trump ‘over a barrel’

But during his interview, Ohr told the committee Steele was referring to Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who has close ties to President Vladimir Putin and once employed Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, as a consultant.

Ohr also provided new details about the Justice Department's move to reassign him after his Steele ties emerged. McQuade says, previously, career Justice Department people found Trump's criticisms of Ohr to be bewildering. They discussed the matter when meeting for breakfast on July 30, 2016, according to the report. At the time of the 2016 presidential election, he was a high-ranking official in the deputy attorney general's office.

The lawyer, Bruce Ohr, also says he learned that a Trump campaign aide had met with higher-level Russian officials than the aide had acknowledged, the people said. Who is Bruce Ohr, and why is Trump tweeting about not only about him but Ohr's wife as well? Ohr and Steele had reportedly met during the months before the FISA warrant application was first made, during the infancy of the investigation of Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation, which was then handled by the FBI. 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.

Ohr first began discussing Deripaska during a November 21, 2014 meeting in Washington, DC.

Sciutto brought up Ohr specifically, saying, "Here's a Justice Department official who happens to be an expert on Russian organized crime".

Republicans have charged that the Steele dossier, which contains some salacious and unverified intelligence on Trump and Russian Federation, was inappropriately used by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant on former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Weissman is a Democrat partisan who attended Hillary Clinton's election night party and thanked then-acting attorney general Sally Yates in January 2017 after she defied President Trump's travel ban order. Ohr's relationship with his wife and his interactions with Steele tie him loosely to the Russian Federation investigation.

"If members have concerns sensitive information was released, they should raise their concerns with (the intelligence committee) and/or the Ethics Committee", said Amanda Gonzalez.

He met again soon after with one of the officials, who told him Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein did not believe he could continue in his current position as director of a law enforcement grant-distribution program known as the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment.
