The dominoes in what we’re calling Muellergate continue to fall this week.
Recall last week that top DOJ official Bruce G. Ohr was demoted last year after it was discovered he had met with the authors of the infamous Russia dossier.
In the days since that report, Fox News has discovered that his wife, Ellie Ohr, was an employee of Fusion GPS.
Yes, that Fusion GPS, the company hired by the DNC and Hillary to run the traps on the dossier and to feed anti-Trump stories to the media.
What’s even more significant is that Ellie Ohr has a long history of writing about Russia and, equally, that Fusion has always been a small firm of less than a dozen employees.
So it stands to reason to speculate that the wife of a senior Justice attorney was contributing to the political dossier on a president-elect whom the department coincidentally began investigating based on the very claims made in that dossier.
The rabbit hole only gets deeper.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Last week it was revealed that a senior Department of Justice official had been demoted because after the 2016 election, he’d met with the author of the Trump dossier.
According to congressional sources, Simpson and Ohr met sometime around Thanksgiving last year, when President-elect Trump was in the process of selecting his cabinet, and discussed over coffee the anti-Trump dossier, the Russia investigation and what Simpson considered the distressing development of Trump’s victory.
Ohr was associate deputy attorney general at the time which means his boss was Sally Yates. You don’t have to have a suspicious mind to wonder if there was some kind of linkage between this commiseration session and the Russia probe that was beginning to metastasize.
Now there is an interesting twist to the story via Fox News’ James Rosen…this would be the same James Rosen the Obama administration put under surveillance and had labeled as an unindicted co-conspirator in a leak investigation.
A senior Justice Department official demoted last week for concealing his meetings with the men behind the anti-Trump “dossier” had even closer ties to Fusion GPS, the firm responsible for the incendiary document, than have been disclosed, Fox News has confirmed: The official’s wife worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election.
Contacted by Fox News, investigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year. The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016.
