WASHINGTON EXAMINER – Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is the subject of a criminal referral sent to the Justice Department on Wednesday. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., wrote up the referral addressed to Attorney General William Barr, citing concerns that
Ohr “knowingly provided false testimony” last year to a joint task force of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees that were investigating decisions made by the Justice Department and FBI surrounding the 2016 election.
NELLIE OHR WAS PAID BY FUSION GPS TO HELP DIG UP DIRT ON THEN CANDIDATE DONALD TRUMP:
From ZeroHedge – In 2017, The head of opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted in a court filing that his firm paid the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help dig up damaging information on then-candidate Donald Trump. Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, filed the signed declaration in a D.C. court this week affirming that Nellie Ohr, wife of demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, was contracted by Fusion through the summer and fall of 2016 “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump,” according to the filing.
In case you are wondering why FUSION GPS hired Nellie Ohr, here two possible reasons: The obvious connection to her DOJ husband who was in a position to provide Fusion GPS with information on Trump and secondly, Nellie Ohr represented the CIA’s “Open Source Works” group in a 2010 “expert working group report on international organized crime” along with Bruce Ohr and Glenn Simpson.
WASHINGTON EXAMINER – “During her transcribed interview, Ms. Ohr testified she has no knowledge of what was going on in an ongoing investigation’ at DOJ and would not ‘have any knowledge of the Department of Justice’s investigations on Russia.’ Ms. Ohr also denied she shared her research on Russian organized crime and Donald Trump with individuals outside of Fusion GPS (her employer); her husband, DOJ attorney Bruce Ohr, and Christopher Steele,” Meadows wrote in the referral.
“However, documents reviewed by our committees raise concerns Ms. Ohr not only had knowledge of an ongoing DOJ investigation, but that she shared information and research on Russian organized crime to assist DOJ, in direct contradiction with her testimony,” he added.
