Justice Dept. Lawyer Who Met With Dubious Trump Dossier Author To Be Hauled Before Congress By Rowan Scarborough December 7, 2017 The House Intelligence Committee plans to compel testimony from a career Justice Department attorney who met during the election campaign with the writer of the infamous unverified Trump-Russia dossier. The committee has learned that Bruce Ohr, [https://www.washingtontimes.com/topics/bruce-ohr/] an associate attorney general, not only spoke with dossier writer Christopher Steele but also met after the election with Glenn Simpson, whose Fusion GPS hired Mr. Steele with Democratic Party money. “Pursuant to the House Intelligence Committee’s prior subpoenas and information requests, the Department of Justice should have provided the committee with information on contacts that DOJ official Bruce Ohr had with Fusion GPS representatives and Christopher Steele.,” said committee chairman Devin Nunes, California Republican. “The Committee will issue a subpoena to Bruce Ohr for information on this matter.” The committee is investigating Fusion’s financial arrangements, including the reasons for paying three journalists. It was Mr. Nunes’ first subpoena for Fusion bank records that forced Democrats to admit that the party and Hillary Clinton campaign paid for the dossier beginning in June 2016. The dossier has taken on immense importance. The FBI relied on it in July 2016 to begin an investigation into the Trump campaign and any collusion with Russia over the hacking of Democratic Party computers. It relied on the dossier to obtain at least one eavesdropping warrant on a Trump associate. [**Snip**] Fox News first reported the Ohr subpoena. Fox said Mr. Ohr wore two hats at Justice. He led a drug enforcement task force and was a close aide to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. He has relinquished the latter role, Fox said. The Ohr investigation adds to suspicions among Republicans that a “deep state” of anti-Trump current and former federal officials have worked to sabotage Mr. Trump as candidate, president elect and president.

He'll clam up just as Lois Lerner did. Disclosure of the texts came only this week, from the NYT and WaPo, as the Justice Department agreed to make Strzok available to the committee for testimony. The leaks were reminiscent of leaks revealing that the Clinton campaign and the DNC had funded the dossier — just before the committee forced Fusion GPS to hand over financial records by subpoena. Strzok also played a key role on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was also behind a language change in a statement that would later exonerate her. Somehow all these exposures remind me of Watergate. Progressive Democrats trying to cover-up the nefarious criminal acts of the Obama administration, Hillary and her home brewed Server, the phony paid for Dossier is going to land a bunch of Democrat sycophants in the gray bar hotel.
