And the hits keep on coming.
Remember Bruche Ohr, the DOJ official who was demoted last week for secret meetings with Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele in 2016? Well it turns out that Ohr’s wife actually worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election:
FOX NEWS – 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.
“The House Intelligence Committee,” Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News in a statement on Monday, “is looking into all facets of the connections between the Department of Justice and Fusion GPS, including Mr. Ohr.”
We know that both Hillary Clinton and the DNC were funding Fusion GPS and the anti-Trump dossier, and now we find out a very senior official in the DOJ’s own wife was working for the company?
The corruption goes almost all the way to the top it seems. Are we going to find out next that he was pushing the FBI to investigate this anti-Trump dossier and was paid by Hillary to do so?
At this point it wouldn’t surprise me…
