Long after the FBI cut ties with former British spy and Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr continued to maintain extensive contact with him, according to newly reported emails.
The emails, first reported by The Hill, reveal Steele even continued to send information to Ohr after the election.
The FBI suspended and then terminated Steele as a source in early November 2016 for what the bureau defined as the most serious of violations an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI, according to a House Republican memo earlier this year. The FBI reportedly told Steele at the time he could no longer operate to obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf of the FBI.
Yet the emails show Ohr, a former associate deputy attorney general, and Steele communicated extensively from 2002 all the way into 2017.
One text message from Steele to Ohr on Jan. 31, 2017 reportedly said: B, doubtless a sad and crazy day for you re-SY. The text is an apparent reference to President Trumps firing of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
The text continued: Just want to check you are OK, still in the situ and able to help locally as discussed, along with your Bureau colleagues.
Ohr reportedly replied: Im still here and able to help as discussed .Ill let you know if that changes.
Steele reportedly said: If you end up out though, I really need another (bureau?) contact point/number who is briefed. We cant allow our guy to be forced to go back home. It would be disastrous.
It is unclear what and whom Steele was referring to in that exchange.

I am seeing [redacted] in London next week to discuss ongoing business, but there is something separate I wanted to discuss with you informally and separately, Steele wrote. It concerns out favourite business tycoon!
No, it’s someone else not a WH official.
It may be a reference to Julian Assange. They were making back-door efforts to do some kind of deal for Assange. He would then leave the UK, return to Sweden and sing his guts out.
The positive end of the deal for the Democrats: Assange remains quiet.
Comey killed further discussion at one point on negotiations.
No one is sure why but they all apparently wanted to keep it quiet that the DNC emails stolen were not a hack, were not via Russia or any other government.
It was a leak and Julian Assange has hinted at exactly that.
Hang on, the ride is going to get bumpy. Now the Senate Intel Committee traitors are injecting themselves into the fray that they would like a private audience with Assange.
Gee, wonder why? Immunity for silence deal.
I’m having trouble stomaching all this.
I think it’s some mole the Brits have in the FBI...............
Sounds like Bobby "The Sniveling Punk Ex-Marine" Mueller to me...
I hear "Bobby" wears his underwear backwards for "Big Jim" Comey & Back-door Barry, the faggot ex-prez.

Meanwhile, the Observer General observes.
Liberal logic: “Its ok the the FBI is framing Trump for being a Russian spy. Normally, this would be a bad thing... but since this is Trump, extreme measures are justified. After all, he’s a Russian spy.”
