The Attorney General's attack came when Trump claimed the news media "refused to report" at meetings between Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who drafted an opposition research dossier on Trump, and former Deputy Prosecutor General Bruce Ohr.
Ear was demoted from his position in the Attorney General's office after he had located certain meetings with Steele and the head of the opposition research firm that had commissioned him to compile the dossier, CNN reported last year, citing one Source that is familiar with the matter. Ear's wife, Nellie Ear, worked for Fusion GPS and researched and analyzed Trump, Simpson has revealed.
"The big story that Fake News Media is not trying to report is Christopher Steele, who had many meetings with Deputy AG Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife Nelly." It was Fusion GPS, which hired Steele to do the fake and to write a discredited dossier on Crooked Hillary & the DNC …. " Trump wrote on Saturday.
The President followed
with a second tweet and said: "… Do you think that Nelly has worked for Fusion and her husband is STILL working for the" JUSTICE "department? I have never something is seen in my life. "Our AG is scared and lacking in action. It's all revealed – not pretty." IG report soon? witch hunt! "
Bruce and Nellie ear are mentioned in a controversial and controversial memo of House Intelligence Committee chairperson Devin Nunes, a California Republican and Trump congressional ally, was abused by the alleged FBI surveillance officer.
Nunes' memorandum published in February argues that information from Bruce Ohr, including the fact that his wife was hired at Fusion GPS, should have been revealed to the US intelligence supervisor
MP Adam Schiff, the top Democrat of the panel, however, argues that Ors role in the Memorandum was described by Nunes wrong and his interactions with Steele were exaggerated.
"The majority describes Bruce Ohr as a senior DOJ official who worked closely with Deputy Attorney General, Obama-appointed Sally Yates, and later (Trump appointed Rod) Rosenstein, to suggest that Ohr was somehow involved in the FlSA process but there is no indication that this is the case, "it says in the ship memo.
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, has announced on Thursday that it is suing the Justice Department to obtain internal communications regarding the Ear, Steele and Fusion GPS.
Trump's attacks on his attorney general were a usual refrain from his presidency, and he has repeatedly criticized sessions for withdrawing himself from oversight of the investigation in Russia.
Earlier this month, Trump Sessions called for an end to Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Trump's Twitter post came when his lawyers continued negotiating with the Special Adviser about the parameters of a possible President's interview in this investigation and asking new questions about whether the President was trying to obstruct the judiciary.
Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani later attempted to downplay the president's tweet by merely commenting and giving no order.
"The President voiced his opinion about his favorite medium, Twitter, for enforcing his first amendment rights." Giuliani told CNN Dana Bash back then.
CNN's Marshall Cohen, Jeremy Herb, Laura Jarrett, Sophie Tatum and Kevin Liptak contributed to the report.
