The Committee will issue a subpoena to Bruce Ohr for information on this matter, said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Thursday, the committee is issuing a subpoena to a top ranking DOJ official that had been demoted recently for meeting with the former British spy and the owner of a security firm behind the salacious anti- Trump dossier, this reporter has learned.
On Thursday, Rep. Nunes, a California Republican, said in a statement, pursuant to the House Intelligence Committees prior subpoenas and information requests, the Department of Justice should have provided the committee with information on contacts that DOJ official Bruce Ohr had with Fusion GPS representatives and Christopher Steele.
The Committee will issue a subpoena to Bruce Ohr for information on this matter, Nunes added.
It will take several days to process the subpoena, said a source with knowledge of the subpoena.
Ohrs demotion was first reported Thursday by James Rosen with Fox News. Ohr was the Justice Departments associate deputy attorney general and according to Fox News he was ony four doors down from his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
He also held a second post as director of the DOJs Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), which is described on its website as the centerpiece of the attorney generals drug strategy to reduce the availability of drugs by disrupting and dismantling major drug trafficking organizations and money laundering organizations and related criminal enterprises.
House investigators said Ohr met with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, shortly after President Trump was elected. Simpsons firm hired Steele to conduct the research and compile the dossier. It was eventually discovered that funds supplied by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign were used to pay for Steeles part in the dossier.
Ducks in a row.
I can hear the knees knocking from here.
The dimoKKKRATS think Roy Moore is going to be the issue in 2018. IMHO the corruption of the Obama administration will be the big issue.
“Have you visited beautiful Fort Marcy Park recently?”.
So Clinton Foundation money laundering?
Why give them time to destroy evidence and concoct cover stories?
Someone, anyone, please wake me up when one of these swamp rats is doing a perp walk in an orange jumpsuit.
Until then, let me be.
Ohr will plead the 5th and defer questions per current investigations and keep his job at the FBI and live happily ever after. We are so effed.
It must feel pretty damn good to be above the law.
...until your not.
The Fort Marcy Park reference is about thirty years old, tired, and worn out.
First he'll give the Lois-Lerner I-did-nothing-wrong opening statement. Then the Fifth.
So is that shirt you are wearing.
These people lived in a world where Hillary was going to win. They could do what ever they wanted and text whatever they wanted to. Every cellphone is loaded with self incriminating evidence. Trump could never win.
The Dam is breaking.
Give him full immunity. Let’s hear what he has to say.
To me, this entire fustercluck is turning into a Law and Order episode. “You’re all under arrest. Whoever talks gets the pass.”
I only hope that those guilty of such treason are hanging by the neck on the WDC Mall until they are picked clean by birds and maggots.
What happened to the other subpoena that Nunes was going to issue to the FBI?
