Hundreds of documents from twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr have been handed over to Congressional investigators over the last couple weeks and are slowly dripping out to reporters.
On Wednesday, investigative reporter, Sara Carter said new Bruce Ohr notes mentioning former FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her lover former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok raises serious questions.
Via Sara Carter:
A law enforcement sensitive document written by senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr, is raising serious concerns amongst congressional investigators regarding testimony provided to Congress on the involvement of FBI special agents in the probe into the Trump campaign and its alleged Russian ties.
Nov. 21, 2016, the handwritten document lists former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, his paramour FBI Attorney Lisa Page and Special Agent Joe Pientka (who along with Strzok interviewed former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn).
Page’s name on Ohr’s notes raises a number of questions, particularly since she would not have normally been involved in national security investigations, a congressional investigator said. It also raises a number of questions regarding McCabe’s possible involvement and whether was he authorizing any meetings or communications with Ohr in regard to the Trump investigation, the investigators noted.
Another congressional investigator told SaraACarter.com that the notes written by Ohr raise “concerns of previously undisclosed communications with the FBI and Ohr and how extensive these communications were. It also raises concerns about testimony given by Lisa Page, who downplayed her interactions with Ohr in her (July 13) testimony to Congress.”
The notes at the bottom of the memo state, in sloppy writing, “no prosecution yet, pushing ahead on M case,” in reference to Paul Manafort, who is now facing years old charges on financial crimes and money laundering, according to congressional investigators.
On Tuesday evening, investigative reporter, John Solomon dropped a bombshell when he released several exchanges between Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele revealing they continued to communicate well into 2017–after Steele was ‘terminated’ by the FBI.
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.’
John Solomon spoke with FOX News’ Sean Hannity Tuesday evening and said, “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,” Solomon told Hannity.
Hannity asked John Solomon to elaborate on his statement about the DOJ defrauding the FISA court.
“I think for sure the FBI was intentionally keeping this information–this contact between Ohr as a go-between, the flaws in the case-the stuff Devin Nunes told you last night–they were keeping, omitting exculpatory information and hiding their backchannel to the Clinton campaign and that is going to be a real problem for the FBI when this is all done,” Solomon said as Chairman Meadows chimed in, “Without a doubt–AGREE.”
**REWIND- Monday evening Nunes told the Hannity to pay close attention to Bruce Ohr**
“Bruce Ohr is going to become more and more important in this investigation and I think people should pay close attention to it,” Nunes said.
Also–you heard it here at TGP first—Look for President Trump to declassify the June 2017 Carter Page FISA renewal this month, says investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and then-Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe both signed offon the June 2017 Carter Page FISA renewal–things could get interesting!
Look this month for POTUS to declassify …
— 20 redacted pages of June 2017 FISA renewal
… and possibly …
— 63 pages of emails and notes b/t Ohr & Steele
— FD-302 summaries of 12 FBI interviews w/ Ohr re Steele
… and watch Dems and media toadies become apoplectic
