MSNBC’s Maddow: Trump Wants To Ruin Official Who Brought Down Russian Mobster by Demanding DOJ Declassify Files

‘Imagine how happy [the Russian mob] will be when Trump declassifies all of Bruce Ohr’s investigative activities’

MSNBC’s Maddow: Trump Wants To Ruin Official Who Brought Down Russian Mobster by Demanding DOJ Declassify Files (Raw Story)

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained the significance of the career of Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr on Monday night — and why it’s so insidious that the Trump administration is declassifying files about his takedowns of Russian mafiosos.

Before he became a target of Donald Trump’s, Bruce Ohr had a storied but below-the-radar career as “the head of the organized crime and racketeering section” of the Justice Department, Maddow noted — a role that led to him bringing US-based indictments against “the godfather of all godfathers,” Russian mobster Semion Y. Mogilevich.
