We may not know exactly what came out of the House Oversight Committee’s closed-door questioning of former FBI big-shot/now disgraced, multiple-times demoted bruce ohr yesterday. But we now know one of the next steps it has quickly led to.
From investigative reporter Sara Carter’s latest commentary:
Numerous congressional sources are telling SaraACarter.com that after Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr’s explosive closed-door testimony on Tuesday, lawmakers are gearing up to call his wife, Nellie Ohr, in for questioning regarding her work with the now-embattled research firm, Fusion GPS. Congress is also seeking access to Bruce Ohr’s text messages and emails with top FBI officials.
Fusion GPS was founded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson and hired by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign to investigate alleged ties between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Nellie Ohr, a Russia expert who was hired by Fusion GPS in 2016 to investigate the Trump campaign, received multiple large sum payments from the research firm, according to a U.S. official, with direct knowledge of the payments.
The payments from the DNC and Clinton campaign were made through the law firm Perkins Coie, which represented both clients. The research firm also hired former British spy Christopher Steele, who was friends with the Ohrs and who compiled the now infamous and unverified anti-Trump dossier. Steele was not only paid by Fusion GPS for his work but according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch, he was also being paid by the FBI from Jan. 1. 2016 to Nov. 1, 2016.
The obvious questions:
-What did bruce ohr give up in yesterday’s hearing?
-How did it implicate his wife/co-conspirator?
-What is his legal exposure? Hers?
-And, very significantly, how much longer can mainstream media continue to suppress this huge Democrat – that’s right, DEMOCRAT – collusion scandal.
