Through all of the Russian collusion and Trump campaign collusion investigations, the name of Bruce Ohr has come up more than once, but it’s a name many may not recall. While serving as Associate Deputy Attorney General, Ohr and his wife were named as being involved with the production of the infamous Steele dossier on Donald Trump. Ohr was demoted twice for his unethical actions and failure to disclose his involvement with the dossier.
From the time Ohr’s involvement was revealed, key members of Congress have been requesting for the FBI interviews with Ohr, but the DOJ has regularly stonewalled the requests, promoting Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) Chair of House Intelligence Committee and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Chair of Senate Judiciary Committee, are now demanding that the DOJ declassify the FBI interviews of Ohr.
(Sara Carter) – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) have been stonewalled since last year by the Department of Justice, which has refused to turn over interviews the FBI conducted with former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr.
Ohr was demoted twice for failing to disclose his involvement with significant figures (including his wife) associated with the unverified dossier from the now-embattled research firm, Fusion GPS, which alleged President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.

Also concerning to lawmakers is the fact that even after Steele was terminated by the FBI (he worked as a source until he was fired for “unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI”), Ohr continued to supply documents from the ex-spy to the bureau…
With Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusing himself from anything Russia related and Mueller loving Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein running anything Russia related, it’s no wonder that all of the different congressional investigations and demands for documents and records are being stonewalled by the DOJ. It’s time President Trump cleans house, starting with Sessions and Rosenstein.
