Skip to comments.Opinion: How a senior DOJ official helped Dem researchers on Trump-Russia case
Posted on 08/07/2018 6:08:21 PM PDT by bitt
evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clintons campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump's presidency.
Fusion GPS's work and its involvement with several FBI officials have been well reported.
But a close review of these new documents shows just how closely Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, who reported to Obama-era Deputy AG Sally Yates, maintained contact with Fusion and, in particular, its primary source, former British spy Christopher Steele before, during and after the election.
Yates was fired by President Trump over an unrelated political dispute. Ohr was demoted recently.
Ohrs own notes, emails and text messages show he communicated extensively with Steele and with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. Those documents have been turned over in recent weeks to investigative bodies in Congress and the DOJ, but not reviewed outside the investigative ranks until now.

FIRST SENTENCE DIDN’T COPY...T
Hundreds of pages of previously unreported emails and memos provide the clearest evidence yet that a research firm, hired by Hillary Clintons campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to find dirt on and defeat Donald Trump, worked early and often with the FBI, a Department of Justice (DOJ) official and the intelligence community during the 2016 presidential election and the early days of Trump’s presidency.
Yesterday, the media was talking about it being illegal for Trump Jr to meet with a foreign national to receive dirt on HIllary. Wouldn’t it also be illegal for Hillary and Co. to pay a foreigner for dirt on Trump?
Q has said that “Attacks will increase” and that’s happened (Alex Jones) and that Bruce Ohr will become a big part of the story, and that is now happening also.
It’s all fading away. Dems and MSM are successfully running down the clock.
Whatever happened to that other investigator from Utah that Sessions hired? He’s totally disappeared.
These must be the emails that Hannity was hinting at last Friday night on his tv show...
Sally Yates come on down. You’ve won an orange jumpsuit and a cell in Ft Leavenworth. Bruce Ohr, come on down. You’ve also won an orange jumpsuit and an extended stay in Ft. Leavenworth.
You and your ilk should keep your CULT only on your own threads....unless you want replies you are NOT going to like.
Yes, this IS what Hannity has been talking about “coming soon” for a while now.
Lol.. Yes they certainly did say that. Let’s watch them testify themselves into pretzels to say they were just kidding.
Suddenly they’ll all become Alan Dershowitz.
Uhhh..I meant twist themselves into pretzels.
Yes I know.. Proofreading is my friend.
Don't like what I said?
Think about...no, really think about and then ask yourself, IF you are a member of the CULT, why so much of the drops are so dumb/uneducated and WHY a puerile, silly "code" is necessary.
Amazing, these folks are only now connecting dots. Yikes. I guess it is better now than never.
Hannity has Solomon on, and Mark Meadows.
If Ohr misled the FISA court, and conspired with Steele to take down a political candidate/elected president, it could be big trouble for him/her.
And the posts and diagrams, right here, on FR, have also been around for what feels like FOREVER!
Yes and now Judge Jeanine is on; I’ve got the show on right now. :-)
Documented evidence of seditious conspiracy.Yates was not acting without the approval of US AG Lynch nor Obama.
But Sessions has been DOA since Trump was sworn in, allowing Rosenweasel, et al a free hand; not to mentioning stalling everything that Congress has demanded.
