Skip to comments.It began with a lie: Bruce Ohr’s pivotal role in ‘Spygate’
Posted on 06/13/2019 6:49:27 AM PDT by SleeperCatcher
Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr was perfectly positioned to advance the Russia collusion narrative. He had a rare set of relationships ties to opposition researchers and the FBI and would use his links to both in 2016 to connect federal law enforcement to those advancing Trump-Russia conspiracy theories.
A mystery remains: To some in his narrow circle, Ohr was upfront about the compromising nature of his connections, yet he hid that fact from officials charged with overseeing ethics at the Justice Department. Why, then, did Bruce Ohr admit to the FBI that his wife worked for opposition researchers Fusion GPS while failing to disclose it to the DoJ? The answer speaks volumes not just about how the Trump-Russia affair gained traction but about the way Washington works.
Ohr has since confirmed to Congress who the conspiracy theorists were: Chris Steele, as I understand it, was hired by Fusion GPS to do research or gather information. He provided information to me, Ohr has testified. Glenn Simpson, who is, as I understand it, a principal of Fusion GPS, on a couple of occasions, he provided information to me. And on one occasion my wife, who was a contractor with Fusion GPS, provided some information to me.

When they are under oath and facing charges, they know not to lie when the questioners already have the correct answers.
I still believe that Ohr and/or his wife will become the John Dean of this whole thing and bring it all crashing down.
I smell lots of smoke but don’t see a hint of fire.
The lie is the weapon used most often by the criminal.
Bruce Ohr is John Dean.
These relationships include the usual players together with foreign intelligence sources.
The point: this gang was a practiced conspiratorial group which played this game many times before they worked it against Trump. Will the investigation uncover other such hoaxes?
I won't bet against it.
I hope that Strzok and Page get to continue their correspondence, but this time from the respective Federal penitentiaries in which they’re incarcerated...I think Mr. & Mrs. Ohr are deserving of the same treatment.
Jay Sockolaw (sp) is the Presidents lead attorney overseeing the post-Mueller response, and said recently (on Hannity) that Lisa Page is fully cooperating with DOJ/IG investigators. And James Baker might be doing the same.
He did it ......... because he knew he’d get away with it.
And, so far, he has. And it will encourage others to do the same.
Nothing short of complete rebuilding of a FBI with NO surveillance powers is acceptable. If you can’t get (or won’t) prosecute, transfers to Alaska, Hawaii and Border Patrol are in order, counting paper clips.
.... transfers to Alaska, Hawaii and Border Patrol...
Border Patrol motto is Honor First..no fbi need apply, BP are some of the hardest working, dedicated employees of the US government working a tough dangerous job, and mostly unappreciated.
Border Control, counting paper clips - is that ok?
The point: this gang was a practiced conspiratorial group which played this game many times before they worked it against Trump.
