Fusion GPS involved! Oh what a surprise! NOT!
Wasn’t this suppose to be the MOST TRANSPARENT government under Obama? What happened?
Bthe DOJ and FBI are embroiled in controversy after their strong bias against one political candidate — Donald Trump — was uncovered. At the center of the storm is Fusion GPS, a private firm that conducted skewed “opposition research” on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party.
It has already been revealed that the DNC paid Fusion GPS for a dossier meant to smear Trump, and that the Department of Justice used this to obtain wiretaps at Trump Tower while hiding its true origin.
ANOTHER SUSPICIOUS CONNECTION BETWEEN DOJ AND FUSION GPS
Now, another suspicious connection between the Department of Justice and Fusion GPS has been uncovered. The wife of a government official who was a key part of the dossier scheme was receiving payments from Fusion — but this conflict of interest was actively concealed.
“Bruce Ohr, the Department of Justice official who brought opposition research on President Donald Trump to the FBI, did not disclose that Fusion GPS, which performed that research at the Democratic National Committee’s behest, was paying his wife,” reported The Daily Caller.
Failing to disclose that information is more than just a simple paperwork mistake. Since even-handedness within the Department of Justice is supposed to be important, purposely falsifying government ethics forms is a serious offense that is punishable by jail time.
BRUCE OHR’S WIFE PAID BY FUSION GPS
The evidence suggests that Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie — herself a former CIA official with links to Russia — was being paid by Fusion GPS for work related to the now-infamous “dirty dossier.”
These payments were kept hidden by the Ohrs, but Bruce wasted no time in using the same dossier his wife had been paid to work on to encourage the FBI to investigate Trump’s team.
Remember, the dossier research funding for Fusion GPS was coming from the Democrat party all along. It’s a political pyramid scheme:
FBI members used the made-up dossier to justify their biases, while the dossier was given false importance because FBI officials were biased.
“The DOJ used it to obtain a warrant to wiretap a Trump adviser, but didn’t disclose to the judge that the DNC and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign had funded the research and that Ohr had a financial relationship with the firm that performed it — which could be, it turns out, because Ohr doesn’t appear to have told his supervisors,” explained the Caller.
Oops! Kind of a BIG detail you left out about Fusion GPS, don’t you think Bruce?
It gets worse. In addition to apparently concealing that his wife was being paid to help create the exact same dossier he was circulating to the FBI, Ohr also hid the fact that he was meeting with Fusion GPS himself.
What was THAT? Bruce Ohr HID something about Fusion GPS? Oh, I’m sorry! I thought this was the Obama administration – you know the MOST transparent administration.
“Bruce Ohr was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump ‘dossier’ containing salacious allegations about the now-president,” Fox News reported in December.
This raises another question: Is it possible that the entire reason Ohr was so eagerly trying to hawk the dossier to the DOJ because he had made an agreement with Fusion GPS to peddle it — with his wife receiving payments for this promotion of Fusion’s work?
DUH! Do you THINK so?
“Some have suggested that the financial payments motivated Bruce Ohr to actively push the case,” The Daily Caller stated.
No kidding! Hello! McFly is anyone home?
This administration and all those involved in the FISA memo and Fusion GPS….STINKS! It’s one thing to see Hillary Clinton sell out America to the highest bidder like she did with the Uranium One deal. It’s another to see the DOJ and FBI smeared with the likes of Clinton and the Obama administration.
You can’t ignore the signs that Bruce Ohr, his wife, and many others within the Department of Justice were basically selling their government influence to the highest bidder – Fusion GPS. I guess they learned that from Crooked Hillary. Sad.
America at one time trusted the FBI and DOJ to do the right thing. It’s too bad this whole FISA memo and FISA warrant stained the entire DOJ and FBI. Too bad when Hillary was running for the highest office in the land, she didn’t have the country’s best interest in mind. What did you expect…Hillary did expect to win at all costs!
