Newly released documents provide evidence of the close relationship between top Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr and former British spy Christopher Steele, who authored the Steele dossier.
Steele was terminated by the FBI as an informant in November 2016 for defying the FBI’s orders by revealing his relationship with the Bureau to the media. Fusion GPS wanted the media to write anti-Trump stories before the election. But for more than a year, Ohr continued to meet with Steele and serve as a back door into the Bureau.
The watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained 339 pages of records under the Freedom of Information Act including emails and texts between Bruce Ohr and Steele.
