Bruce Ohr Revealed Political Operatives Got The FBI To Investigate The NRA
The Federalist ^ | 14 March 2019 | Margot Cleveland

Posted on 03/14/2019 6:45:17 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum

Friday’s release of a transcript of Bruce Ohr’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee revealed several new tidbits. It also raised serious concerns that fake claims of collusion pushed by Glenn Simpson and Democratic opposition research shop Fusion GPS prompted the launch of not one, but two federal investigations: the Russia collusion investigation and investigations into the National Rifle Association (NRA).

During his day-long testimony last August, Ohr, then an associate deputy attorney general, explained his involvement—or non-involvement, if he is to be believed—in the Russia-collusion investigation. Ohr testified that he knew former MI6 spy and dossier author Christopher Steele for more than a decade and was acquainted with Steele’s boss, Fusion GPS head Simpson, for many years.

Ohr further explained that from July 30, 2016 until November 2017, both Steele and Simpson provided him “intel” related to supposed collusion between Russia and members of the Trump campaign. Ohr then passed this information on to the FBI, where it was used to, among other things, obtain FISA court orders to surveil and otherwise target the Trump campaign team.

But in an abbreviated aside, Ohr causally revealed one communique with Simpson that indicates the Fusion GPS founder pushed another false story that unleashed multiple federal investigations into the NRA.

During questioning, Ohr stated that Simpson mentioned “that Cleta Mitchell became aware of money moving through the NRA or something like that from Russia.” Ohr added that Simpson claimed that Mitchell—a D.C. attorney specializing in campaign-finance law and a former member of the NRA board of directors—“was upset about it.” But when asked how Simpson found out about Mitchell, Ohr testified, “I don’t think he said.”

Instead of investigating the NRA, ‘Glenn Simpson should be prosecuted for making a false statement to a federal agent,’ former NRA board member Cleta Mitchell said.

not one of them tells the Truth or is indicted for lying.

NONE OF THEM.

It is utterly corrupt — and the People are waiting.

The dems have very clearly weaponized the FBI. I don't for a second beleive we somehow have uncovered the only two isntances of them using it. We found two instances of many.

At this point, the FBI simply cannot be trusted. They willingly let themselves be weaponized. They wanted to be weaponized. And they've lost any ethical authority to be considered an impartial investigative agency. And without that, they are worse than useless, they are dangerous. Break 'em up.

This is getting to be fun.

But the real fun will start when we find Obama added his two cents to what Glenn Simpson said.

From what I gathered last night listening to Faux News, The House Intel. committee (Minority)chaired by Devin Nunes is going to be forwarding recommendations to the DOJ/AG to prosecute a whole bunch of people for their involvement in this attempted coup.

Let’s see what the New AG does. If nothing is done by fall we know the new boss is the same as the old boss...

IIRC, they actually inserted an agent into the NRA....and IIRC, Trump’s son was at an NRA convention....and they were keeping an eye on him. So this was really about thye President.

The politicized FBI in Washington has become a threat to the Republic.

what to do with the local/regional offices who actually fight crime? Find another home for them.

There is also the Sheryl Attkisson spying case. She still doesn’t know what happened to her. The Obama admin was totally out of control assaulting its political opponents under color of law and sadly the GOP couldn’t care less.

This is exactly why so many people were opposed to forming the FBI to begin with.
