Report: The FBI hid back channel between Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele from the FISA court

August 8, 2018

  deep stateI might have to jog your memory on this a little bit but do you remember Bruce Ohr? He was the Department of Justice official who was supposedly demoted because he had contact during the 2016 campaign with the foreign agent,  Christopher Steele, who was hired by Fusion GPS (which was hired by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee) to dig up dirt on Donald Trump during the election. And to top it off his wife worked for Fusion GPS.

  Bruce Ohr is back in the news again, this time because it looks like the FBI set up a back channel between Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele after the foreign agent was supposed to have been terminated by the FBI for leaking information to the press. Here is more:

New emails obtained by Congress show Christopher Steele funneled information to the FBI through top DOJ official Bruce Ohr after the FBI ‘terminated’ Christopher Steele in November of 2016.

Here is more from Mark Meadows:

  You can read some of the text messages in question by following the link I provided above but here is the gist of it:

Although memos show the FBI specifically instructed Steele he could no longer “operate to obtain any intelligence whatsoever on behalf of the FBI,” Bruce Ohr continued to be the FBI’s back-channel to the former British spy.

Text messages also reveal Bruce Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele met on July 30th, 2016–just one day before the FBI opened ‘Crossfire Hurricane.’

  Devin Nunes has already stated that the Department of Justice hid exculpatory evidence when it appeared before the FISA court and now it looks like this information was also hidden from the court:

 “the real conspiracy that we’re all gonna be looking at in a month from now will be the one inside the Justice Department to defraud the FISC court…I believe that’s where this goes”

    Since the US is a Banana Republic can we please just get on with having a purge? This Chinese water torture is driving me crazy. Sheesh!

    This story is not really all that surprising given the actors involved and the various clues that have previously been released. The only thing missing is the bag man who paid all these people. I am sure they are not altruistic and are doing it out of loyalty to some secret society.

      Not surprising at all! I hope someday we will get to the bottom of this but I am not hopeful.

      Thanks for sharing that. Just the way the media reacted last week tells us all we need to know; they are protecting the deep state because they are part of it.

        Yep, their ‘bread and butter’ & other ‘unmentionable things.’
        If these people’s “conscience” ever ‘turned on’ they wouldn’t be able to stand themselves.

    Most people have long ago found their eyes glazing over when the details of this absurdity continue on. Afraid just us political wonks who are committed to this story can find interest in this I fear.
    I have been trying to put together a post about Ukraine. Who are the good guys the bad guys it seems everyone had skin in the game over their including Hillary as a major actor. Beyond me.
    I fear this story is going the same way. Its just getting to many protagonists. Hope springs eternal here…

      I fear you are probably right, most people just are not patient enough to sift through the details of this story and I would add probably most stories as well. It is that short attention span world we live in coupled with apathy.
