Who is Bruce Ohr, whose name keeps appearing in Trump’s tweets?

Pres. Trump Accuses Bruce, Nellie Ohr Of Colluding With Russia

According to the Times, Ohr and Steele first discussed flipping Deripaska in November 2014.

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden said on CNN tonight he has heard nothing but good things about DOJ official Bruce Ohr, one of the men at the center of another Russian Federation controversy. Ohr's relationship with his wife and his interactions with Steele tie him loosely to the Russian Federation investigation.

Steele and Ohr, at the time of the 2016 presidential election a senior official in the deputy attorney general's office, had first met a decade earlier and developed a rapport over a shared interest in worldwide organized crime.

Two sources familiar with the dossier told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Ohr had no role in its compilation.

Tropical depression no threat to Florida, but rain still in forecast
The National Hurricane Center forecasts it will nearly certainly become a cyclone but will not affect the USVI. A third tropical wave is forecast, by at least one model, to emerge from the African coast around Sept 7 or 8.

It is not clear from the report why Mr. Steele, who compiled and distributed the salacious anti-Trump dossier that started the Russian Federation probe, believed Russian Federation had the influence over Trump.

Fusion GPS is a company that used funding from Democrats to compile the Steele dossier. The FBI had stopped using Steele as a source shortly before the election after he shared information with Mother Jones magazine.

The president who has denied any collusion between his campaign and Moscow, continued his attack on Ohr this week.

Ohr still remains at the Justice Department despite this.

First Look At iPhone XS and New Apple Watch
Numerous iPhone X rumors have circulated regarding the next Apple device's features, size and colors. Apple is set to launch the phone in a new gold colour option that hasn't previously been available.

Convicted felon and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was also mentioned in the report.

Another Republican point of protest is that Ohr's wife, Nellie Ohr, had worked as a subcontractor for Fusion. They met in the mid-2000s, people who know Ohr said, as both fought against the evolving threat of Russian organized crime for their respective countries.

That revelation prompted the FBI to open the counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016, one day after the breakfast but based on entirely different information.

In the interview, Ohr acknowledged he had not told his superiors about his meetings with Steele because he deemed the information inflammatory raw source material.

USA stops funding to Palestinian refugee agency due to 'irredeemably flawed operation'
The United States paid out $60 million to UNRWA in January, withholding another $65 million, from a promised $365 million for the year.

A senior Justice Department lawyer said a former British spy told him at a breakfast meeting two years ago that Russian intelligence believed it had Donald Trump "over a barrel," multiple people familiar with the encounter claimed.
