If this story is true, it is huge
First off ohr had no business being involved in the case whatsoever, especially seeing as how his wife was working for the company making the dossier
He certainly shouldn’t have been backchanelling to Steele, who was fired by the fbi
The fbi has so far denied that they knew of ohrs involvement or his wife’s connections
Now we are finding out that not only did they know, but if this story is accurate muellers deputy Weissman was also involved
Ohrs involvent in his case is going to be investigated for possible misconduct
So how can muellers team have a fair look when one of the higher ups in it may be a witness into this investigation?
Weissman would clearly have an incentive to not want his friend ohr to not get in trouble, which makes any part of this case he worked on suspect
In addition, seeing as how he was predisposed to the very dossier they are investigating, how can he impartially the investigate it?
Did mueller know of this?
If he did, and still allowed Weissman to be involved, this proves the whole investigation is tainted
If he didn’t know, he needs to fire Weissman immediately, and then start looking at what damage Weismann did.
That is if this story is true

Ohr has done nothing wrong. Trump has his henchmen attacking him because he's the countries for most expert on the Russian mob. And trump has long time relationship with the Russian mob. So he's someone who needs to go. Or be tarnished. Anything to make him a villian against trump.
JOB APPROVAL AT 36%...DISSAPROVAL...OVER 60%.
Most people think Mueller is doing a good job and want him to continue.
Trump uses the word impeachment in every conversation he has. He's terrified. He knows he's committed crimes.
Mueller is relentless.
If there was no collusion he would have wrapped this up already. I think he has a water tight case

Why are you guys so anxious for the investigation to end? Don't you want the proof of his innocence?
Tee hee. You don't want it to end because it's over for him when it does.
If there was nothing there it would have ended already.
He was tasked with being the go between with Steele and the FBI because of his Russia expertise.
GAETZ: Thank you. Let's do that quickly and get into your determination to find out that activity, which is occurring in your department. At the last hearing we had, I asked you when you became aware that Nelly Orr (ph), the wife of your associate deputy attorney general, Bruce Ore, was working for Fusion GPS and was actively assigned to the dossier that said all these nasty things about President Trump. As you sit here today, do you know when you became first aware of that?
ROSENSTEIN: I believe it would have been sometime in the fall of 2017 as I think I told you last time. Mr. Orr was never working to my knowledge on that Russian investigation.
GAETZ: But his wife was, right? I mean, like, he's your assistant -- your associate deputy attorney general, and his wife gets hired for that. I actually -- I asked you this question on the 13th of December, I wrote you a letter on the 18th of December, nine months ago, you have not responded to it.
We need a date when you found out that the wife of your deputy was working for people who are actively trying to undermine President Trump? Don't you think that's a really important date for you to know about your -- the spouse of your own associate deputy attorney general?
ROSENSTEIN: Yes, I think it is important for you to understand, Congressman, Mr. Orr is a career employee of the department. He was there when I arrived. To my knowledge he wasn't working on the Russian matter.
GAETZ: I don't --
ROSENSTEIN: I think it is important for you to know, sir, that when we learned the relevant information, we arranged to transfer Mr. Orr to a different office.
