Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for the firm hired by the Clinton campaign to write the dossier – Bruce Ohr gave the dossier to the FBI – The FBI then used the same dossier to spy on the Trump campaign When he comes to Congress tomorrow, Bruce Ohr has explaining to do
Today is the day that demoted Justice Department official Bruce Ohr will be in the spotlight.
Fox News Insider reports that
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Monday on America’s Newsroom that he wants Justice Department official Bruce Ohr to admit that he and his wife were part of a “conspiracy” to create a narrative of wrongdoing by President Trump.
Ohr is expected to testify before Congress on Tuesday about his communication with Trump dossier author and ex-British spy Christopher Steele.
It was revealed earlier this month that Ohr and Steele communicated via email, even after Steele was terminated by the bureau.
Ohr’s wife, Nellie, also worked for Fusion GPS, which was hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign to compile the dossier of potentially damaging information against Trump.
Issa labeled Ohr as a partisan operative on Monday and said his testimony could be a “strong opportunity” to reveal information about his conversations with Steele.
He added that if House Republicans don’t get the answers they’re looking for, charges of contempt could potentially be introduced.
“It’s hard not to be frustrated that the attorney general is not more effective in ordering individuals to cooperate,” he added.
President Trump tweeted last week that it was a “total joke” that Ohr has yet to be fired from his post, citing Jeff Sessions.
Issa said that he would expect that Ohr be fired and potentially prosecuted.
“I would certainly think that he should be relieved of all authorities and powers until this investigation has been completed at a minimum,” he said.
And, there’s even more involved in this story. According to Heavy.com,
In an exclusive report, The Washington Post reported that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee allegedly “helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier” that lobbed salacious allegations about President Donald Trump, Russia, and even so-called “golden showers” into the public debate. The firm behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, had steadfastly refused to release details of its funding sources.
Citing anonymous people familiar with the situation, The Post exclusive reported that “Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research. After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to the people. Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC.”
However, the Post added that one source said that Clinton’s campaign and the DNC may not have been aware of the Fusion GPS role although the newspaper alleges that Elias received the Steele report. The newspaper added, “At no point, these people said, did the Clinton campaign or the DNC direct Steele’s activities. They described him as a Fusion GPS subcontractor.” Maggie Haberman, of the New York Times, shared the Post bombshell story and wrote on Twitter, “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year.” Republicans funded Fusion GPS until Trump won the primary (and before the dossier’s collection.)
Oh, one more thing. Again, according to Heavy.com,
He (Ohr) started out in New York as a federal prosecutor. “Mr. Ohr was an Assistant United States Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (1991-99), and was Chief of the Violent Gangs Unit in that office (1998-99). Mr. Ohr joined the Criminal Division in 1999 and served as Chief of the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section until 2011, when he became Counselor for Transnational Organized Crime and International Affairs in the Criminal Division, serving in that position until November 2014,” the bio says.
As I have written recently, the Southern District of New York is working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller and will be going after President Trump’s Business Empire and his family as well.
Are you beginning to see a pattern, gentle readers?
As I have described before, this whole Democrat-supported “Lawfare” against Trump, whose groundwork was begun under the Obama Administration by Deep State Operatives, resembles a spider’s web in its malevolent intricacy with its “alarm thread” leading directly back to the Obama and Hillary.
The incestuous nature of this covert operation resembles something out of a Tom Clancy Novel, only twice a large a conspiracy and three times as unbelievably dangerous.
This has been a well-planned coup designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.
The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.
That is why they are still attempting to overturn the results of a fair election.
My late Former Father-in-law was a retired Police Lieutenant, who had worked with the FBI on several high-profile cases.
To say that he wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.
According to him, the letters FBI stood for “F—ing Bunch of Idiots”.
In the case of the DOJ/FBI’s “Secret Society” of Deep State Covert Operatives, darned if he wasn’t right.
Until He Comes,
