U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter again this weekend with attacks on the Department of Justice and its Russia investigation. As a president of the United States, he refuses to have respect for the nation’s justice system, which is part of what keeps the nation from becoming like any of a host of dictatorships elsewhere on the planet.

He wrote, in part:

‘The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife, Nelly. It was Fusion GPS that hired Steele to write the phony & discredited Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary & the DNC.’

Actually, the mainstream media has reported on Ohr’s connection to Steele and the “Trump dossier” full of claims about the president’s ties to the Kremlin. His connection runs through his wife, who has worked for the firm that hired Steele, although she wasn’t involved in the efforts to put the dossier together. Bruce Ohr handed over one of a number of copies of Steele’s dossier on Trump to the FBI but wasn’t the first to do so, according to the FBI’s Peter Strzok.

Also, why on earth does Trump immediately resort to commenting on Ohr’s wife’s Nelly’s appearance? Trump has peddled that sexism and dismissal of women as eye candy in the past, but it’s still disconcerting.

He continued:

‘Do you believe Nelly worked for Fusion and her husband STILL WORKS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF “JUSTICE.” I have never seen anything so Rigged in my life. Our A.G. is scared stiff and Missing in Action. It is all starting to be revealed – not pretty. IG Report soon? Witch Hunt!’

There’s not really any evidence of anything being “rigged.” Ohr hasn’t been found to be corrupt because of his tenuous connection to Steele and Fusion GPS, although the Department of Justice did transfer him away from the Deputy Attorney General’s office.

Trump’s attacks on Ohr come days after the conservative group Judicial Watch announced a lawsuit against the Justice Department seeking any and all communications involving either Bruce or Nelly Ohr and Christopher Steele. That lawsuit comes as the group claims the department to have failed to properly respond to a Freedom of Information Act request they filed for the same documents earlier this year.

In addition, Trump allies like his lawyer Jay Sekulow and the GOP head of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes have focused attacks on Ohr in recent days.

Their idea seems to be that the official worked to “collude” with Steele and his Russian sources to take down Trump. It’s in line with many past claims from the president and his allies of the Democrats as the ones to have really colluded with Russia.

That’s a gross misrepresentation of the situation, though. Ohr and Steele and others were handling information they recovered from the periphery of the global stage that pointed to a possible conspiracy involving the Trump camp to put the businessman in power. They sent that information down the standard justice system pipeline, and despite the president’s endless ranting, that’s where it mostly remains at present. There have been no formal allegations of collusion against the president or his associates — they’re just freaking out.
