Department of Justice lawyer Bruce Ohr said former spy Christopher Steele told him in 2016 that Russian intelligence thinks it has President Trump “over a barrel,” sources told the Associated Press. Ohr told legislators in a private interview about the July 30, 2016 breakfast with Steele, who created the controversial dossier with explosive claims about the president. Republicans have argued that the FBI relied too much on the dossier while investigating Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Earlier this month, Trump slammed Ohr, his wife, and Steele in a Twitter tirade. “Bruce Ohr of the ‘Justice’ Department (can you believe he is still there) is accused of helping disgraced Christopher Steele ‘find dirt on Trump.’ Ohr’s wife, Nelly, was in on the act big time,” he wrote. The president also told reporters that he expects to revoke Ohr’s security clearance “very quickly.” “For him to be in the Justice Department and doing what he did, that is a disgrace,” he tweeted.
