Report: DOJ’s Bruce Ohr Shared Unverified Dossier Intel with Prosecutors Now on Mueller Team
In 2016, DOJ official Bruce Ohr shared details from his meetings with anti-Trump dossier author Christopher Steele with his colleagues, including senior FBI officials and prosecutors now assigned to the Mueller investigation, according to Fox News.
In August, Ohr testified behind closed doors to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees where he discussed details of his 2016 meetings with Steele. It was during that testimony that he confirmed he shared information from Steele with then-deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, then-FBI attorney Lisa Page, then-FBI agent Peter Strzok and the man now known as Mueller’s “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann.
“Andy McCabe, yes and met with him and Lisa Page and provided information to him. I subsequently met with Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, and eventually (an FBI agent),” he testified. “And I also provided this information to people in the criminal division specifically Bruce Swartz, Zainab Ahmad, Andrew Weissmann.”
Fox News reports:
“According to online bios, Bruce Swartz was identified as a deputy assistant attorney general. Andrew Weissmann was chief of the DOJ Criminal Division’s Fraud Section before becoming a senior prosecutor on Mueller’s team handling the case of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. According to a May 2017 New Yorker profile, Zainab Ahmad worked at the U.S. Attorney’s office in the Eastern District of New York and took a leave to work for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters. Ahmad is now assigned to the special counsel’s investigation.”
