Justice Department official Bruce Ohr will testify behind closed doors in the House on Tuesday, and give Republicans a chance to examine how President Barack Obama’s administration ultimately decided to investigate President Trump’s campaign.
Ohr, who at one point was the associate deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, has become the latest target of Republicans because of his connections to Christopher Steele. Republicans are convinced that Ohr was too close to Steele and used Steele’s questionable analysis to launch an investigation into Trump.
The article goes on to state the following:
Steele, a former British counterintelligence agent, was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS to prepare the Trump-Russia dossier. Fusion GPS hired Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, to help with research into Trump.
The fuller picture of what Nellie Ohr did for Fusion GPS was revealed in a signed declaration from co-founder Glenn Simpson in U.S. District Court in Washington in December, which revealed that she was contacted “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump.”
Then, in February, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., released a memo that detailed Ohr’s alleged contacts with Steele and Fusion GPS.
According to the memo, Ohr talked with Steele — who admitted to Ohr he did not want Trump to become president — before and after the FBI used him as a source, even after the FBI ended its relationship with Steele because he shared information with the press.
The Nunes memo alleged that the “clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files,” but was never reflected in any of the applications to surveil Trump campaign aide Carter Page. The memo added that Ohr “later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research.”

We’ve learned NEW information suggesting our suspicions are true: FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press, and then used those same press stories as a separate source to justify FISA’s
Unreal. Tomorrow’s Bruce Ohr interview is even more critical. Did he ever do this?

Bruce Ohr wrote that Christopher Steele (author of the defamatory dossier) was “very concerned about James Comey’s firing — afraid they will be EXPOSED.”
What would they be exposed for? Spurring a corrupt witch hunt against President @realDonaldTrump?
Bruce Ohr must answer!
