Congressmen learned that the Mueller team has not yet bothered to contact/interview Bruce & Nellie Ohr. Mr. & Mrs. Ohr were KEY PLAYERS in creating the fake Russian Dossier. On Tuesday Bruce testified that high-level executives & appointees at the FBI & DOJ knew all ALL about the DNC’s & Clinton campaign’s involvement in the creation of the Russian Dossier.
Bruce Ohr, Associate Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice was the back channel between Fusion GPS (employed by Clinton campaign) and the FBI. His testimony Tuesday before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees contradicts the previous testimony of former FBI attorney Lisa Page and Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS. Who is lying?
Ohr, the highest level career attorney in the DOJ, with 30+ years of experience, testified that the fictional dossier would never be accepted in a court of law. That is, no judge would consider it to be factual because there is no evidence to back up the allegations contained therein.
PERP WALK BRUCE & NELLIE OHR TO NEAREST FEDERAL PRISON
Bruce Ohr and his wife, Nellie Ohr, who worked for Fusion GPS, conspired to trick the FISA* Court into granting a warrant to spy on Candidate Trump, President Trump, the Trump Campaign and campaign workers. Nellie, who was a former CIA agent specializing in Russian intelligence, and former British spy Christopher Steele created the Dossier and fed it to the DOJ, via back channels, with the help of Bruce.
During the 2016 presidential campaign Bruce Ohr met with Steele to discuss using the dossier, originally paid for by the DNC & Clinton campaign, to prevent Trump from being elected. Ohr continued to work with Steele to destroy President Trump AFTER the FBI fired Steele for leaking to the media. THAT was a violation of DOJ regulations that should have gotten him fired immediately.
Shortly after the election, Bruce Ohr met with Glenn Simpson to discuss how the dossier could be used to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump and throw doubt on his presidency. SEE EMAILS BETWEEN STEELE & OHR BELOW.
Ohr’s failure to disclose to the FBI his meetings with Steele & Simpson, and his failure to disclose his wife’s involvement in creating the dossier, were offenses others would get fired for. Yet, Ohr is still employed by the DOJ, albeit he has been twice demoted from his position as the highest-ranking career attorney at the Department of Justice.
NELLIE WAS THE RIGHT PERSON TO CREATE THE FAKE DOSSIER
Nellie Ohr was hired by Fusion GPS in early 2016. On May 23, 2016 she obtained an amateur ham radio license. Investigators believe she needed the license so she could communicate with MS16 Agent Christopher Steele and various sources in Russia that Steele was utilizing to develop opposition research for the Clinton campaign & the DNC. By using the ham radio instead of other means of communication Nellie’s conversations would not be picked up by government communication intercepts.
Nellie Ohr speaks fluent Russian, holds a BA in Russian history & literature from Harvard and a PhD in Russian history from Stanford. In addition to her position as a Russian Intel expert for the CIA, Nellie has been a Russian scholar at the (President Woodrow Wilson) Wilson Center and taught at Vassar College. She lived in Russia in the late 80s.
LOCK THEM UP!!!
The information that was given to the FISA Court came from the Russian Dossier created by Bruce, Nellie, Steele and Fusion GPS for the Clinton Campaign and the DNC. The dossier was based upon fiction and had no backup documentation. Fusion GPS wrote a fictional novel, passed it to Obama and Clinton operatives at the FBI & DOJ and used it to obtain a fraudulent FISA* warrant to spy on President Trump and his administration.
Bruce and everyone who was involved in lying to the FISA Court have committed several felonies. They need to be fired from their government jobs immediately and arrested. And take Nellie with them.

*FISA: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Rules to get a FISA Warrant: While the proceedings are secret, there are rules that have to be followed. The statute that created FISA Courts bars targeted electronic surveillance in the United States unless there is evidence that a foreign power or agent of a foreign power is involved. Also, there has to be evidence that the facility –an email address or phone number, for instance — is being used by the foreign power or agent. In addition, the government must show that the information to be collected is “relevant” to any investigation of foreign espionage or terrorism.
The warrants are generally issued for up to 12 months, and they authorize the government to collect “bulk information.” That means that while Americans on U.S. soil who are not agents of a foreign government are not targeted, information collected could include communication between U.S. citizens.
