Democrats will claim that the Muller investigation into the Trump campaign and its possible collusion with the Russians to influence the 2016 elections is strong, and that impeachment is a matter of time. Pro-Trump voters say the Democrats are wrong, and that the entire investigation is a witch hunt based on cover ups, set ups, and corruption connecting the Obama administration, the FBI, Hillary Clinton and the DOJ.
Weighing in the favor of the Pro-Trump voter is a new report from Fox News Monday that reveals the wife of demoted DOJ official worked for firm behind anti-Trump dossier.
FROM FOX NEWS
EXCLUSIVE: A senior Justice Department official demoted last week for concealing his meetings with the men behind the anti-Trump “dossier” had even closer ties to Fusion GPS, the firm responsible for the incendiary document, than has been disclosed, Fox News has confirmed: The official’s wife worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election.
Contacted by Fox News, investigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year. The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016.
Fusion GPS has attracted scrutiny because Republican lawmakers have spent the better part of this year investigating whether the dossier, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, served as the basis for the Justice Department and the FBI to obtain FISA surveillance last year on a Trump campaign adviser named Carter Page.
