Three top Senior Justice Department officials, two who are senior prosecutors on Robert Mueller’ Special Counsel, met with Bruce Ohr in the summer of 2016, well before the FBI sought a FISA warrant on a Trump campaign official. Ohr informed the trio of DOJ officials about his close contact with former British Spy Christopher Steele, whose dossier was used as the bulk of evidence to obtain the warrant to spy on Carter Page.
Ohr, who was then the Associate Deputy Attorney General, told members of Congress during his closed-door testimony in August 2018 that he had informed senior officials that he was delivering information he was gathering from Steele and Glenn Simpson, the founder of embattled research firm Fusion GPS.
Ohr’s testimony also had a stunning revelation that Andrew Weissmann, who was then head of the DOJ’s Criminal Fraud section and now Deputy Special Counsel for Robert Mueller, was also briefed by Ohr on his meetings with Steele during the summer of 2016, shortly after Ohr met with Steele. The testimony, which has not yet been made public, was authenticated by sources from congressional testimony to SaraACarter.com.
“Any names?” asked Gowdy.
“Yes,” said Ohr. “So, I was about to tell you. One of them was Bruce Swartz, who is the counselor for International Affairs in the Criminal Division; a person who was working with him at the time, working on similar matters in the Criminal Division was Zainab Ahmad; and a third person who was working on some—some of these matters I believe was Andrew Weissmann.”
Like, Weissmann, Ahmad, a Pakistani American lawyer, also has a senior role as a prosecutor on Mueller’s team investigating the Trump campaign and the Russia investigation.

But I'm still waiting for the domino effect.
When is President Trump going to go public with
this treason and begin public prosecution?
He then said that in a scheduled call with Alexander Bortnikov, the director of Russia’s domestic security service, the conversation focused mostly on Syria and then briefly on harassment of U.S. diplomats in Moscow
“It’s no secret that Brennan was here,” Syromolotov was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying Monday. “But he didn’t visit the Foreign Ministry. I know for sure that he met with the Federal Security Service (the successor agency to the Soviet KGB), and someone else.”
The director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, John Brennan, visited Moscow at the start of March, Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov as saying on Monday.
Brennan had meetings at Russia’s Federal Security Service, among other places, and his visit was not linked to the decision by Moscow to start withdrawing its forces from Syria, Syromolotov was quoted as saying.
Dean Boyd, director of the CIA’s Office of Public Affairs, confirmed Monday that Brennan visited Moscow.
"Director Brennan traveled to Russia in early March to emphasize with Russian officials the importance of Russia and the Assad regime following through on their agreements to implement the cessation of hostilities in Syria,” said Boyd.
He added that Brennan “also reiterated the U.S. government’s consistent support for a genuine political transition in Syria, and the need for Assad’s departure in order to facilitate a transition that reflects the will of the Syrian people.”
Foreign ministry spokesman Syromolotov was quoted as saying that Brennan, while in Moscow, visited the Federal Security Service (FSB), Russia’s main security agency, and “somewhere else,” but not the foreign ministry.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation (MFA Russia; Russian: Министерство иностранных дел Российской Федерации, МИД РФ) is the central government institution charged with leading the foreign policy and foreign relations of Russia.

...possibly after Mueller submits his report...
Everything else will stop because Trump will be impeached and removed from office after this point.
