When Russian mafia boss Semion Mogilevich [linked to Manafort, Trump, Putin] tried to cut a deal with FBI/DOJ on his 2006 money laundering charges, Bruce Ohr refused. Ohr also helped revoke Oleg Deripaska's visa. Now he's a target of Trump.
Recall, an earlier target of Trump's was ex-deputy FBI director Andy McCabe, who in 2003, became FBI supervisory special agent of the Eurasian Organized Crime Task Force, New York Division [right in Trump's backyard].
Any wonder Trump hated him?
Also a Trump target: ex-Mueller team Lisa Page who has a serious record of going after the Russian mafia – particularly, Semion Mogilevich, whose associates owned Trump Tower condos. Father of Trump business partner Felix Sater was a Mogilevich Lt.
Another favorite target of Trump: Peter Strzok, lead agent on the 2010 espionage case that led to the arrest of 10 Russian spies embedded in the US, posing as Americans, working to destabilize the country.
The Russian mafia – Semion Mogilevich in particular – must be very pleased with Trump's relentless attacks and targeted smear campaigns on DoJ officials who focus on Russian intelligence and Russian organized crime. via @maddow
Trump’s favorite targets in the Russia probe – Ohr, Page, Weissman, McCabe – spent their careers in DOJ & FBI investigating organized crime & money laundering, particularly the Russian mafia [an arm of Putin's Intelligence Services].

Trump’s links to Russia lead straight to organized crime & the name Semion Mogilevich pops up more than any other. By attacking Ohr [Page & McCabe], Trump is trying to keep his many ties to Mogilevich from unraveling.

Bruce Ohr, a 30-year DOJ veteran, testified that during a Jul 2016 breakfast, former MI6 agent Christopher Steele [whom he'd known since the early 2000s] told him Russian intelligence thought they had candidate Trump "over a barrel."
