Fed-Up House Republican Releases Bruce Ohr Testimony Showing Major Conflict of Interest

In a surprise move Friday, Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, unilaterally released the 268-page transcript of an August 2018 interview with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.

Collins explained that his patience with the Justice Department “has grown thin.” He took to the House floor and asked that the full, unredacted transcript be put on the record.

In his testimony, Ohr revealed that former British spy Christopher Steele was simultaneously paid by both the FBI and the Democrat opposition research firm Fusion GPS during the 2016 election.

The transcript also shows claims conflicting with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson on several key points, including the timing of their meeting to discuss the Steele dossier.

Additionally, Ohr testified that Simpson provided false information to federal officials regarding Cleta Mitchell, a Republican campaign finance attorney who used to work for the NRA.

Simpson was expected to face the panel last October, but rejected a subpoena to testify, saying he would assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

"Mr. Speaker, last Congress, the Judiciary Committee interviewed multiple DOJ and FBI officials about their actions regarding the 2016 elections," Collins said. "People anticipate the Mueller report soon. Will he find any so-called 'collusion'? Or was the only 'collusion' among agency personnel who hated the president and started this investigation?" he added. "Our interview transcripts were pertinent to a congressional investigation, but the 115th Congress ended, the investigation was closed, and copies were shared with certain members of Congress."

@RepDougCollinsThis morning, I requested the link https://dougcollins.house.gov/ohr be placed in the record so the American people can review the transcript of Bruce Ohr’s interview.










In 2016 and 2017, Ohr kept top officials at both the FBI and Department of Justice apprised of his conversations with Christopher Steele both before and after Steele was fired as an informant.

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee retained Fusion GPS through lawyer Marc Elias and his firm Perkins Coie to dig up dirt about candidate Trump after he clinched the Republican nomination.

Fusion GPS hired Steele, who authored the still unverified, largely discredited dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government that the FBI used to obtain a warrant on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

Ohr testified to Congress last August that he repeatedly warned top officials at the FBI and DOJ about Steele’s bias and Fusion GPS’s conflicts of interest, yet this information was kept hidden from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, worked as a contractor for Fusion GPS while all of this was going on.

Th problem is getting anything past Nader and Cummings when it comes down to it. Both of this fools will lay down covering fire for Broom Hilda or even fall on the grenade if need be. There is a lot of stuff coming to light and they need to do a special prosecutor to look into the DNC and the DOJ but with the DEMs controlling the house that will be hard to do. The GOP blew this by wasting the 2 years that they controlled everything. As much as I despise the DNC and all it stands for you have to admire how they always stick together. The GOP needs to take a lesson on that.

I can't help but think that the GOP still feels the sting of the Clinton/Ken Starr circus? I'd like to have seen them take on the Clinton machine once again, but if the Trump/Russia thing was a distraction, imagine what kicking over the Hillary/Uranium One/Opposition Research thing would have been? Yet, the GOP has little to nothing to show for the last two years in spite of that, so even by not taking Hillary on, they wasted what opportunities they DID have to really legislate. That's the real shame here.

I'm not so sure I'd go so far as saying they all "stick together" though? They do have one common goal: consolidation of power - first to themselves, next to their party. I'm stocking up on popcorn now to watch the monkey-poo fight that's going to unfold before us as they jockey for the nomination through the primary season. I can see some of the lesser candidates being rolled under a front runner as a VP pick, but they've otherwise got quite a number of ego-soaked messiahs who can't see past their reflections as the future of our country. They're already tripping over each other to get in front of a camera. And, as always (GOP has a history of this, too), they'll cover each other with the mud of their past and it'll be up to the GOP to finish off whoever is left using the material the democrats themselves provided.

If you ever want to see how well they "stick together," go read some posts in the Democratic Underground website. Maybe the politicians "stick together," but the rank-and-file are waging a battle over whether the Democratic Party transitions from traditional party platforms to one more reflective of their vision as a Democratic-Socialist utopia.
