DoJ hack Bruce Ohr faces congressional grilling over fake ‘Russia dossier’ in closed-door session

(National SentinelDeep State: You can’t accuse Congress of moving quickly when it comes to fulfilling its oversight role, but one thing’s for certain — eventually, lawmakers will get around to hauling you before their committees if they want to talk to you.

And on Tuesday it’s Justice Department hack Bruce Ohr’s turn. He’ll be appearing behind closed doors before the House Government Oversight Committee to explain what he knows about the bogus “Russia dossier” many suspect him and his wife, Nellie Ohr, had a huge role in creating, via “political opposition research” firm Fusion GPS.

Fox News reported:

Republicans will likely allege that Ohr played a pivotal role in selling the unverified dossier, created by Fusion GPS – where his wife Nellie Ohr worked – and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

The dossier was used by federal officials to justify the surveillance of a top Trump aide, Carter Page. Steele, an ex-British spy, was a key source cited by the FBI and Department of Justice to obtain a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) warrant to monitor Page.

California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa told Fox News on Monday that Ohr’s testimony could be a “strong opportunity” to reveal information about his conversations with Steele. He added that Ohr should be suspended at least until the end of the investigation.

“I would certainly think that he should be relieved of all authorities and powers until this investigation has been completed at a minimum,” Issa said.




Much of the hearing is expected to focus on communications between Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele, the former British spy who was the point man for the dossier after news broke earlier this month the two were in frequent contact even after the FBI ended its association with Steele.

Writing in The Hill, John Solomon noted:

Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump’s presidency.

Fusion GPS’s work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported.

But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported to Obama-era Deputy AG Sally Yates, maintained contact with Fusion — and, in particular, its primary source, former British spy Christopher Steele — before, during and after the election.

Yates was fired by President Trump over an unrelated political dispute. Ohr was demoted recently.

The noose tightens…

    I understand, we have a secret government, God Forbid we should get the truth.

    This smells to high heaven. If you don’t want people thinking about replacing you then maybe you should be more transparent.

    Might be time for a complete reset, too many foreign players have bought too many politicians. Just because Russia lost their most expensive asset, (150mil) doesn’t mean that the room is clear, IT IS NOT.

  2. Sad that everything is done in secret. NOTHING Ohr could possibly say would endanger America. Not any worse than what he and the OTHER corrupt FBI agents have already done in attempting an insurrection! Testimony MUST be public.

    Private questioning and closed-door sessions are SOVIET, not American.

      Sadly, I think the America you are thinking of died a long time ago in reality.
      The public image may remain but in reality it is a corporate and military ganster state.
      Take away the fine and noble words spoken by puppet representatives and it will reveal how hollow those words are.

      Even in foreign aid there is no real honour.
      US aid to several African nations in the last 10 years was under condition that they also accepted Monsanto GM seed and toxic weedkiller as part of the package.
      What’s that all about???
      How is the noble act of offering aid to impoversihed nations reliant on them taking US corporate poison?
      And that is the smallest of the crimes committe on the wider world.

      Do you think that havig open door sessions with the liies of Ohr will make everything rosie in the American garden?
      You have arrived at this condition not because of Clinton, Bush or Obama but of decades going back a hundred years of corporate and political corruption, now, it is overflowing like a pot of boiling water overheating.
      Only now, people can see more clearly.
      That is the only difference.

      The UK is the same and western Europe too.

      Your will never heal and repair your republic by saying certains practices are “soviet” and not “American”…..that is merely skimming the surface of the deep rooted disease.

      The weeds have to be pulled out by the roots and burned.
      It won’t happen in 8 years of any presidency.
      It is a generational job of work.

      Maybe it is best if nations withdrew to their own borders and left the wider world in peace.
      The whole west/east/capitalist/communist thing is largely a huge con on the people of the world.
      Divide and rule by the elite families….same old….same old.

      Instead of worrying about closed hearings maybe it would be better for the American people if your government at some point in the future brought your armies home from the 80+ countries they are currently stationed in?

      And let’s not kid ourselves….90% of the time when US or UK or Russian or Chinese forces are in other peoples countries it is NOT for altruistic reason…..it is purely for national interest.
      But…it’s not right is it?

      In the days of empire Britain took control of several African nations……not because they really wanted to or needed them, it was in fact a financial burden….they did it to stop other European nations from controlling them, so Britain’s annexation of these countries was to deprive their rivals of African land and influence.

      It ALWAYS goes wrong in the end.

      Let’s stop dictating to the world as to how they should live and concentrate on solving the myriad problems in our home nations.

      Just saying you know 🙂
