STEELE NERVES: Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele TERRIFIED Over Comey Firing, Feared ‘EXPOSURE’
A treasure trove of recently released communications between the DOJ’s Bruce Ohr and former British spy Christopher Steele reveal both men were ‘highly concerned’ over James Comey’s firing; admitting they feared ‘exposure’ following his removal.
According to Fox News, a series of emails, texts, and handwritten notes show both men were deeply disturbed by Comey’s termination, with Ohr saying that Steele “was very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey’s firing — afraid they will be exposed.”
“The Ohr documents shed more light on Steele’s activities before the presidential election. While Steele shopped the dossier to multiple media outlets, he also appeared to ask Ohr for help with a Russian oligarch — Oleg Deripaska — after rumors the U.S. might impose sanctions,” writes Fox News.
“Very concerned about Comey’s firing, afraid they will be exposed,” said Bruce Ohr. DOJ’s Emails & Notes show Bruce Ohr’s connection to (phony & discredited) Trump Dossier. A creep thinking he would get caught in a dishonest act. Rigged Witch Hunt!
