    Not for nothing, but in your link it says that the FBI fired Steele for talking to Mother Jones. Not only that, but it says that Ohr was working outside of his normally assigned duties.

    From your link........................

    Republicans have said that Mr. Ohr gave the dossier to the FBI, which it used to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, warrant on Carter Page, a key Trump campaign aide. When the dossier was given to the FBI, Mr. Ohr was head of the Justice Department’s organized crime and drug task forces, and passing it along would have fallen outside his job responsibilities.

    Fox News reported this month that Mr. Steele, who was fired by the FBI for leaking information to the media, tried to use Mr. Ohr to contact special counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the probe into any Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

    No, because it was the FBI that fired Steele after he talked to Mother Jones. Ohr, for whatever reason, decided to keep in contact with Steele and keep gathering information. The information that was collected after Steele was fired is the information that is not being used, even though Ohr continued to collect it.

    I'd like to know why Ohr kept in contact with Steele after the FBI fired him?

    well like I said Ohr just stated to the congress that Steele wasn't credible. Now, why would a person like Ohr, keep working with a not credible foreigner during an election collecting dirt on the opposition? what did it benefit him exactly? Hmmmmm simply illogical as Mr. Spock would say.

    Bulllshit. It was found that the CIA planted a contact for Page to make, who gave him a phony story about a Russian spy in the Trump campaign. Then in a second meeting they got him drunk enough to repeat the claim, which was then relayed through the Aussies to the FBI. They took it to the FISA court for a wiretap. Carter Page is about as much a spy as you are and has never met Trump.

    Carter Page admitted he was an adviser to Russia.

    Page covertly served as a paid "adviser" to Russia while serving as a foreign policy adviser to Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.

    Actually, we don't know what he said behind closed doors, we only know what the Republicans are saying he said, without context and without us seeing a transcript or tape of the hearing, convenient for the R's in congress to make up crap, which they often have been PROVEN to do.....

    Steele had worked with the CIA many times before and was seen as VERY credible.

    Where is your link?
