Former DOJ associate attorney general Bruce Ohr is going rogue behind closed doors revealing under oath to members of Congress that not only was the dossier filled with unverified information and outright lies, but that top officials at the FBI and DOJ knew about it, yet still used it to target the Trump campaign for “collusion.” “When I provided [the Steele information] to the FBI, I tried to be clear that this is source information,” Ohr testified. “I don’t know how reliable it is. You’re going to have to check it out and be aware. These guys were hired by somebody relating to-who’s related to the Clinton campaign, and be aware.” And THAT unsubstantiated intel was the impetus for the bogus Russia collusion investigation. Well done, boys.
Here’s more from PJ Media…
Virtually everyone at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department involved in the FBI’s counterintelligence probe of candidate Donald Trump knew from the beginning that the investigation, dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane,” was based on shaky opposition research compiled by a Trump-hating former British spy and funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Bruce Ohr, the demoted associate attorney general, 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.
And to add insult to injury, instead of investigating the officials who actively participated in the dossier hoax, Special Counsel Robert Mueller hired several of them to be on his team to investigate President Trump.
