To say that Mr. Trump is nervous about Special Counsel Mueller at this point is probably an understatement. I think he is realizing that the “witch hunt” is actually leading somewhere and he is looking for every opportunity possible to deflect. On Friday afternoon, the president went on another insane Twitter tirade.
‘”Fox News has learned that Bruce Ohr wrote Christopher Steele following the firing of James Comey saying that he was afraid the anti-Trump Russia probe will be exposed.” Charles Payne
@FoxBusiness How much more does Mueller have to see? They have blinders on – RIGGED!’
No, Mr. Trump, you have things a bit twisted. What Justice Department Official Bruce Ohr was afraid of being exposed were the confidential sources whose lives would be at risk. According to Fox News:
‘Ohr wrote that Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy who wrote the salacious dossier, was “very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey’s firing — afraid they will be exposed.”‘
Twitter had plenty of words for Trump:
On Wednesday, Mr. Trump terminated former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance, and said that he was reviewing the clearance of several other officials including Bruce Ohr who was t he only official listed still currently working in the U.S. government.
Trump’s statement read:
‘For this reason, I’ve also begun to review the more general question of the access to classified information by government officials. As part of this review I’m evaluating action with respect to the following individuals: James Clapper, James Comey, Michael Hayden, Sally Yates, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr.’
