(National Sentinel) Justice Denied: In March amid calls for him to do something to get to the bottom of the Obama-era abuses of the FISA court to spy on POTUS Donald Trump’s campaign by the FBI and Justice Department, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Utah-based U.S. Attorney John Huber to the task.
In the months since, we’ve not heard much about Huber — about what he’s investigating, who he’s investigating, and what progress, if any, he’s made thus far.
But now we know that one person tied to the abuses and excesses of the DoJ and FBI as it pertains to the applications for spy warrants to the FISA court is demoted Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, whose wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the bogus “Russia dossier” used to get the warrants against Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. And he’s not been contacted by Huber (or special counsel Robert Mueller, for that matter).
As PJ Media reports:
Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr has not yet been contacted by special counsel Robert Mueller or U.S. attorney John Huber for interviews, multiple sources revealed following Ohr’s testimony before the joint hearing of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
“What we know is that Bruce Ohr … was not interviewed by Mr. Huber out in Utah, who allegedly is investigating all of the FISA abuse and the unmaskings,” prominent Washington, D.C. attorney Joe diGenova revealed on Hannity Tuesday night.
Republicans said following Ohr’s testimony on Monday that some of their worst suspicions about DoJ and FBI spying on the Trump campaign during the election have been confirmed.

Fox News‘ Catherine Herridge said some GOP lawmakers have noted some of Ohr’s testimony about the dossier and its author, Christopher Steele, doesn’t line up with previous testimony by former FBI lawyer and anti-Trump texter Lisa Page and Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS.
So, in Sessions’ absence and knowing that Mueller is only focusing on getting POTUS Trump, many of the president’s supporters have been counting on Huber to bring some wins (in the form of indictments) for the home team.
Where is he, and what’s he doing?
Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) told reporters following the hearing that he thinks Ohr’s testimony needs to be referred to Huber.
“I would expect that his testimony and transcript today would be of interest to United States Attorney John Huber, who I understand has been tasked with investigating specifically whether or not the FISA process was abused as it related to obtaining a warrant on an American citizen named Carter Page,” Ratcliffe said.
Later, Ratcliffe told an exasperated Sean Hannity on his Fox News program Tuesday night that Huber should contact his office.
“Well, my recommendation to Mr. Huber would be for him to contact my office and ask for a copy of the transcript of Bruce Ohr, and I’ll make his job a lot easier.”
