Justice Department lawyer says that Russian intelligence believes they have Trump “over a barrel.”

I think I’ve discovered why Donald Trump hates Bruce Ohr so much.

A senior Justice Department lawyer says a former British spy told him at a breakfast meeting two years ago that Russian intelligence believed it had Donald Trump “over a barrel,” according to multiple people familiar with the encounter.

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.

The previously unreported details of the July 30, 2016, breakfast with Christopher Steele, which Ohr described to lawmakers this week in a private interview, reveal an exchange of potentially explosive information about Trump between two men the president has relentlessly sought to discredit.

They add to the public understanding of those pivotal summer months as the FBI and intelligence community scrambled to untangle possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. And they reflect the concern of Steele, a longtime FBI informant whose Democratic-funded research into Trump ties to Russia was compiled into a dossier, that the Republican presidential candidate was possibly compromised and his urgent efforts to convey that anxiety to contacts at the FBI and Justice Department.

The people who discussed Ohr’s interview were not authorized to publicly discuss details of the closed session and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Among the things Ohr said he learned from Steele during the breakfast was that an unnamed former Russian intelligence official had communicated that Russian intelligence believed “they had Trump over a barrel,” according to people familiar with the meeting.

It was not clear from Ohr’s interview whether Steele was directly told that or had picked that up through his contacts, but the broader sentiment is echoed in Steele’s dossier.

Okay so for those who have wondered why Trump had such a hard-on for this Ohr guy, I think that this is a fairly good explanation. 

Since Trump’s entire strategy for dealing with the Russia investigation is to attack the character and credibility of those involved, which currently includes James Comey, Robert Mueller, Peter Strzok, Christopher Steele, and Mueller’s team of investigators, it makes sense that even those who have had contact with Steele are also on his shit list. 

At this point, I would think that it would be considered a badge of honor by those working in the FBI and Justice Department to be called out by name by Donald Trump. 

That would be an absolute vindication of their hard work trying to keep this country safe from foreign invaders and their American puppets.

    Howard Dean Warns That Trump May Be Getting Psychotic

    Dean said on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber when asked if the White House is prepared for a Democratic House takeover, “I think they are pretty much wholly unprepared to do anything. Trump is a guy who just thinks in the moment. He has no plan. I actually thought the other day when he was making all those really crazy tweets he might be getting psychotic. So I don’t think there’s any long-term planning. I think the staff tries to engage in long-term planning but you’ve got these neo-Nazi types like Stephen Miller running around. He has an agenda, not the end good of America, but he sucks Trump in every time. There’s an incredibly short-sighted group of people. The ones that have a long-term vision can’t get anything done because Trump is unmanageable.”

      “Getting?” He already is according to the anonymous staffer who wrote that New York Times article. They’ve already discussed the 25th. They’re hiding papers and trying to control him. And now that the cat’s out he’s going ballistic.

    “documents filed by attorneys for Papadopoulos, he was in a meeting when the president “NO D.D. ED” approval when he suggested that he meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin prior to the 2016 presidential election.”

    “he claimed legal basis for the withholding of documents will be presidential privilege.

    The notification of the White House refusal to release documents was sent to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee.”
    “In all, 267,000 pages of Kavanaugh documents from his Bush years are being made public, but it is thought that the 100,000 pages of documents that will NOT be released could contain crucial information needed to assess the nominee’s views on many sensitive and potentially explosive legal issues.

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called it “a Friday night document massacre.” ”

    I checked out that Jim Jeffries interview on Qanon. How crazy is that? And the young people are being targeted to believe all that shit. The internet is being used to brainwash our young people. I know this because my daughter always watches Shane Dawson and he makes some crazy shit seem plausible if you are a young person who has not learned how to differentiate total bullshit from facts.

    Has to be money. Trump doesn’t embarrass easily and really doesn’t care about anything but money. Remember that TV “Roast?” The only topic that was off limits was his wealth. No jokes questioning how wealthy he is. Even his hair was fair game. My prediction is that Trump doesn’t have Billions or even as many Millions as he claims. And that he owes money not only to Russian banks but also the Russian mob. His debts outpace or are at least equal to his income so he is using the office of president to MAKE MONEY to line his own pockets.

    That’s why he’s sticking his nose into the FBI’s new headquarters. He figures if he can replace the Hoover building his D. C. Hotel’s property value will increase.
