FROM EIR DAILY ALERT


Bruce Ohr on Hot Seat for Unlawful, Anti-Trump Contact with ‘Ex’ MI6 Agent Steele

Aug. 11 , 2018 (EIRNS)—Bruce Ohr, demoted from his fourth-ranking post in the Department of Justice, but still employed there, is the target of several investigative actions aimed at exposing more about his unlawful and extended collusion against President Donald Trump, with British “ex”-MI6 foreign intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

On Aug. 28, Ohr is to testify at a closed-door hearing before the joint House Committees of Judiciary and of House Oversight and Government, which was announced yesterday by Rep. Mark Meadows, an Oversight and Reform Committee member. That committee’s Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, said on Fox News yesterday that they will issue subpoenas if the Justice Department tries to block questioning Ohr and others. Gowdy made specific references to the reports that Ohr had repeated contact with Steele, after the FBI had officially cut Steele off as a source. So, Ohr became a conduit into the Justice Department for Steele. All the while, Mrs. Nellie Ohr was working for Fusion GPS, the company which had commissioned Steele to produce an anti-Trump dossier.

Also yesterday, Judicial Watch head Tom Fitton, in his weekly YouTube update, detailed the lawsuit filed by his organization this week against the Justice Department, to compel it to turn over documents connected with the Ohr-Steele collusion.

President Donald Trump early this morning tweeted about the general FBI/DOJ mess, and their withholding documentation.

“Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text massages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding? McCabe wife took big campaign dollars from Hillary people....

“Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!”
