Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official being targeted by Right Wing media and Donald Trump, is well known for going after the Russian mob.

In nearly three decades at the Justice Department, Mr. Ohr has made a career of supporting and facilitating important cases that targeted Russian organized crime. Now he is a target of President Trump, who has put his security clearance under review and attacked him publicly, and allies. They have cast Mr. Ohr and his wife — who worked as a contractor at the same research firm that produced a damaging dossier of information about Mr. Trump — as villains, part of a pro-Clinton cabal out to destroy the president.

But Mr. Ohr, 56, is far from corrupt, friends and former colleagues said. An experienced law enforcement official, he has a deep understanding of the underworld of Russian organized crime, they said, including raising concerns about at least one oligarch whose name has resurfaced amid the scrutiny of contacts between Trump associates and Russia.

As part of this work, Mr. Ohr met a British spy who specialized in Russia, Christopher Steele, and the two men developed a bond based on their shared expertise. Mr. Steele went on to investigate ties between Mr. Trump and Russia for the same research firm, Fusion GPS, where Ms. Ohr was a contractor.

Those connections have upended Mr. Ohr’s once relatively anonymous life, dragging him into the maelstrom of the Russia investigation. Justice Department officials transferred Mr. Ohr, an associate deputy attorney general, to a less powerful post last year after learning about his contacts with Mr. Steele and the scope of his wife’s work. If he loses his security clearance, he would probably be forced to leave federal law enforcement after nearly three decades.

Does anybody else find it especially coincidental that the man who was a major thorn in the side of the Russian mafia is now sitting directly in their White House asset’s crosshairs?

Or is that just me?

    OT? “Trump considers himself his own best spokesperson, but he has failed to convince the American people about Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation.

    The poll also shows why Democrats aren’t running on impeachment. The American people need to see more evidence before they fully support impeachment. Voters aren’t there yet, and it is clear that they have other issues like healthcare higher up on their list of concerns.

    Most Americans are willing to wait for Robert Mueller’s findings, but they don’t trust Trump. They don’t believe Trump, and they are currently siding with the special counsel.”

      Fox new has this figured out that Ohr was in contact with Steele for the purpose of Hillary Clinton, Comey, Strozak and Brennan who plotted to make a fake dossier to delegitimize Trump’s election and impeach him. Per Fox everything in the dossier Is fake. Hillary and the DNC paid for this plot.

      It is an alternative universe over there.

    “rump said in a series of Twitter messages.

    “This is a fraud on the court. The Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is in charge of the FISA court. He should direct the Presiding Judge, Rosemary Collier, to hold a hearing, haul all of these people from the DOJ & FBI in there, & if she finds there were crimes committed, and there were, there should be a criminal referral by her,” Trump said in the Twitter post that misspelled the judge’s name.”
