The New York Times (NYT) released another leak from Deep State’s corrupt Mueller team stating that the DOJ’s Bruce Ohr and Fusion’s Christopher Steele were major players in efforts to get Russian oligarch Oleg V. Deripaska to implicate then candidate Trump with Russia.

Maybe because Deripaska is connected to the Kremlin and has faced credible accusations of extortion, bribery and even murder, the DOJ reportedly thought he would be willing to validate their fake Russia dossier. (The NYT doesn’t note that this has been reported previously and Deripaska laughed them out of the room.)

In yet another leak to the press from the corrupt Mueller gang, the NYT reports –

Between 2014 and 2016, the F.B.I. and the Justice Department unsuccessfully tried to turn Mr. Deripaska into an informant. They signaled that they might provide help with his trouble in getting visas for the United States or even explore other steps to address his legal problems. In exchange, they were hoping for information on Russian organized crime and, later, on possible Russian aid to President Trump’s 2016 campaign, according to current and former officials and associates of Mr. Deripaska.

In one dramatic encounter, F.B.I. agents appeared unannounced and uninvited at a home Mr. Deripaska maintains in New York and pressed him on whether Paul Manafort, a former business partner of his who went on to become chairman of Mr. Trump’s campaign, had served as a link between the campaign and the Kremlin.

The attempt to flip Mr. Deripaska was part of a broader, clandestine American effort to gauge the possibility of gaining cooperation from roughly a half-dozen of Russia’s richest men, nearly all of whom, like Mr. Deripaska, depend on President Vladimir V. Putin to maintain their wealth, the officials said.

Two of the players in the effort were Bruce G. Ohr, the Justice Department official who has recently become a target of attacks by Mr. Trump, and Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled a dossier of purported links between the Trump campaign and Russia.
