Justice Department official Bruce Ohr completely bypassed his superiors at the agency when he connected with FBI officials to share information he received from British ex-spy Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump dossier, according to a report Thursday.

While President Trump and Republican lawmakers have been eager to use Ohr’s link to the unverified dossier to discredit special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, sources who spoke to ABC News emphasized that Ohr was a rogue actor whose efforts held little sway.

“Nobody knew. He didn’t tell anybody,” said one former DOJ official who worked with Ohr, who had been associate deputy attorney general. “It was completely outside the scope of what he was asked to do. It wasn’t even close to his job.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Ohr is scheduled to give testimony to the Oversight and Judiciary Committees behind closed doors on Tuesday. In previewing what GOP investigators are poised to ask, Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News on Sunday that he and his colleagues would ask Ohr about whether there was a bias campaign against Trump that led even further up the power chain in the Obama administration, particularly by ex-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

“The real question that we need to find out from Mr. Ohr: Was he just a rogue employee acting improperly on his own or did he have some authority from within the Department of Justice and was Sally Yates aware of what he was doing?” Ratcliffe said.
