Transparency is the best disinfectant!!

 

Ohr's hearing on the 28th is closed to the public jim.  NOT transparent.  Yay, we'll get more of the not useful he said, she said reports from the idiots questioning him.  They don't want the public to see, yet again, what incompetent, sleezy, lying, conspiracy addicted, obstructionists of justic traitors they actually are.

I'm trusting Ohr to answer what he is able to but that he will correctly state repeatedly, "He is not allowed to comment on an ongoing CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.

Getting past Trump watching a couple of hookers urinating on the bed the Obamas slept in, we find page after page of detailed and documented facts on Trump's business pursuits with Russians over the decades. When Steele begins to release the documentation he collected, it is going to be very, very tough for even the Republicans not to pursue the investigation back to Trump and Putin's doors. 

 

I know they plan to make it all about bumper sticker accusations but we have seen how poorly that works against honesty, intelligence, and preparedness. Perhaps the Republicans should try THAT approach sometime?


What has golden showers and old, legal business dealings have to do with the topic?

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, announced Saturday that former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr would appear before Congress later this month.

 

“Bruce Ohr, former Associate Deputy AG, will be in front of Congress on August 28th. His wife worked for Fusion GPS, the oppo research firm for Clinton,” Jordan tweeted Saturday morning.

— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) August 11, 2018
 

 

Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer, composed the so-called Trump dossier for Fusion GPS, an opposition research firm that employed Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie.

The firm was retained by lawyer Mark Elias, who represented the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

 

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee also unveiled a memo earlier this year that claimed Bruce Ohr met Steele in 2016 and provided the Justice Department information about Steele’s political persuasions.

Long after the FBI cut ties with former British spy and Trump dossier author Christopher Steele, senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr continued to maintain extensive contact with him, according to newly reported emails.  

 

The emails, first reported by The Hill, reveal Steele even continued to send information to Ohr after the election.

 

The FBI “suspended and then terminated” Steele as a source in early November 2016 for what the bureau defined as “the most serious of violations” – an “unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI,” according to a House Republican memo earlier this year. The FBI reportedly told Steele at the time he could no longer “operate to obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf of the FBI.”

 

Yet the emails show Ohr, a former associate deputy attorney general, and Steele communicated extensively from 2002 all the way into 2017. 

 

One text message from Steele to Ohr on Jan. 31, 2017 reportedly said: “B, doubtless a sad and crazy day for you re-SY.” The text is an apparent reference to President Trump’s firing of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates.

 

The text continued: “Just want to check you are OK, still in the situ and able to help locally as discussed, along with your Bureau colleagues.” 

Ohr reportedly replied: “I’m still here and able to help as discussed….I’ll let you know if that changes.”

 

Gregg Jarrett weighs in on 'The Story with Martha MacCallum' after a judge orders Fusion GPS to answer questions about the anti-Trump Steele dossier and discusses claims about Michael Cohen.

 

 

Steele reportedly said: “If you end up out though, I really need another (bureau?) contact point/number who is briefed. We can’t allow our guy to be forced to go back home. It would be disastrous.”

 

It is unclear what and whom Steele was referring to in that exchange.

The Hill reported that FBI officials admitted they continued to receive information from Steele through Ohr.

 

The FBI declined to comment when asked by Fox News whether the bureau relied on Steele’s intelligence after their working relationship was terminated.   

 

Steele also sent one email to Ohr on July 1, 2016, obtained by The Hill, making an apparent reference to Trump.

 

“I am seeing [redacted] in London next week to discuss ongoing business, but there is something separate I wanted to discuss with you informally and separately,” Steele wrote. “It concerns out favourite business tycoon!”

 

Ohr and Steele reportedly had a call on the morning of July 7, 2016.

 

Steele authored and compiled information for the controversial and unverified anti-Trump dossier on behalf of Fusion GPS, which was hired to conduct opposition research funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign through law firm Perkins Coie.

 

Last year, Fox News confirmed that Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election. According to court documents obtained by Fox News last year, Fusion GPS hired Mrs. Ohr to help investigate Trump. A separate Fox News review of her previous published works reveal she wrote extensively on Russia-related subjects.

 

The dossier “formed an essential part” of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants approved to surveil then-Trump campaign associate Carter Page, according to the House GOP memo alleging government surveillance abuse during 2016.

 

Emails show Christopher Steele and Bruce Ohr at the DOJ discusses dossier research; Byron York explains on 'The Ingraham Angle.'

 

 

According to new documents obtained this week by The Washington Examiner, Ohr also continued communicating with Fusion co-founder Glenn Simpson before, during and after the...

 

Other emails obtained by the Examiner reveal Steele’s communications with Russian aluminum financier Oleg Deripaska. Steele emailed with Ohr about Deripaska, who was seeking a visa to attend a meeting in the U.S. According to the Examiner, the U.S. revoked Deripaska’s visa based on alleged involvement with Russian organized crime.

 

Deripaska was reportedly close to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Those communications raised questions of whether Steele was working with Deripaska while working on the dossier, and whether Fusion GPS and the Justice Department were involved.

While the story itself ALLUDED to information from THE HILL, THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER, and FOX NEWS; nowhere does this VERBATIM news story carry an attribution to Brooke Singman, Fox News as the AUTHOR of the piece.

 

Reprinting this article, in this forum, word for word, without any attribution to its AUTHOR seems like plagiarism to me.
