Bruce Ohr used to be the Associate Deputy Attorney General of the United States. He now works for the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice.
An expert on the prosecution of organized crime, it seems that Ohr fit right in with fellow Democrats.
Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS, the firm involved in the infamous Steele dossier at the time the dossier was preparted.
It’s also reported that Ohr had numerous contacts involved with those associated with the dossier.
Former New York City Mayor and current attorney for President Donald Trump says that Ohr should be investigated for committing a felony crime for violating 18 USC sec. 208.
(The National Sentinel) – Collusion: On Thursday presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested the Justice Department investigate one of its own officials, Bruce Ohr, regarding payments his wife, Nellie, received while working for Fusion GPS, the firm that produced the bogus “Russia dossier.”
“What are the odds the DOJ or Mueller have begun an investigation of Bruce Ohr for violating 18 USC sec. 208? That’s a federal felony unless he disclosed all facts to the DOJ and has a written waiver. How many of you know what that is?” Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, wrote on Twitter.
Giuliani was referring to whether Bruce Ohr had issued his wife a waiver so she could work for Fusion, which commissioned the dossier that the FBI eventually used as part of its justification to open a counterintelligence investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign.
“Ohr’s wife was financially benefitted by Ohr, a DOJ official, advancing the Steele phony dossier…
There is another matter that concerning Ohr that no one is talking about.
Most of his career in the DOJ was spent dealing the gang and racketeering prosecution including those of Russian organized crime.
Since Russians were involved with Fusion GPS while his wife worked there and since Ohr was also involved in the Steele dossier, could there not be conflict of interest charges that should also be investigated?
Giuliani is right in that Ohr should be investigated for a felony, but contend there is more than one possible felony he committed.
