Emails Show Christopher Steele Lobbied DOJ Official Bruce Ohr On Behalf Of Russian Oligarch

  • Christopher Steele was working on the Trump dossier at the same time he was lobbying DOJ official Bruce Ohr on behalf of a Russian oligarch linked to Putin.
  • Newly revealed emails show Steele thought the U.S. government should grant visas to Deripaska, who had been barred from traveling to the U.S.
  • Steele asked Ohr to “keep an eye” on Deripaska’s visa case.

Daily Caller: At the same time Christopher Steele was compiling a dossier accusing the Trump campaign of colluding with the Russian government, the former British spy was lobbying Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr on behalf of a Russian oligarch with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The connection between Steele and the oligarch, Oleg Deripaska, is laid out in emails the Justice Department recently provided Congress.

The emails show that Steele, a former British spy, advocated for Deripaska in negotiations over his visa status with the U.S. government. Deripaska, an aluminum magnate, had been blocked from traveling to the U.S. in 2006 because of suspected ties to Russian mobsters. Deripaska hired an American lawyer named Adam Waldman in 2009 to lobby the U.S. government to obtain a visa for the billionaire.

The Washington Examiner detailed the exchanges, which show Steele discussing Deripaska with Ohr, the former No. 4 official at the Justice Department.  read more

  1. Steele sure spreads it around. Who didn’t he talk to?
    Reading the texts between him and Ohr, Steele’s either p***y whipped or browbeat by his wife, so maybe he was just lonely.

  2. In other news, an IRS jet has been spotted in Little Rock being filled with boxes of documents.
    This is the home town of the Clinton Foundation.

  3. Is it just me or is everyone in Washington just chasing their tails? This is more proof that the US Government can not police itself and has no intention of ever doing so. The US Justice System has run aground, its hull is cracked in its going to roll over and sink. Trump is just another used car salesman giving the voters his pitch but it appears the car he is selling has no wheels or motor. When are the DOJ and FBI department heads going to be removed from just protecting the swamp??

  4. Michael Moore just came out with “Trump is our last President” as though Trump wants to be President for life. Once again we see the Leftist Hate Merchants using fear mongering tactics, but the deeper question is where do they get these ideas?
    Answer: Right from their OWN Socialist, Marxist Communist back yard! That’s where!!
