ANTI-TRUMP AMNESIA: GOP Rep. Says Ohr Has ‘POOR MEMORY’ Surrounding Steele Relationship

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.28.18

GOP Rep. Darrel Issa accused DOJ official Bruce Ohr of having a “poor memory” during his Congressional testimony Tuesday; slamming the anti-Trump administrator after repeatedly deflecting questions surrounding his relationship with a former British spy.

Ohr appeared before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committee this week to answer serious questions about his behind-the-scenes dealings with Christopher Steele, the author of the debunked ‘Trump Dossier.’

“He seems to not remember a lot of details and, you know, poor memories are often claimed by people who want to stick to what they can say and not be caught in perjury,” said Rep. Issa.

“I don’t know if it’s improper but I want to know who at DOJ knew and it certainly looks like he continued to meet with Mr. Steele after the FBI had terminated their relationship with Mr. Steele,” added Rep. Jim Jordan following the hearing.

DAY OF RECKONING: Bruce Ohr Arrives at the Capitol for ‘CLOSED DOOR GRILLING’ over Trump Dossier

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.28.18

The anti-Trump DOJ official with multiple connections to the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ arrived at the US Capitol Tuesday morning to face a “closed door grilling” from Congressional Republicans over his ties to a former British spy.

Bruce Ohr will speak with GOP leaders behind closed doors over his connection to ‘Trump Dossier’ author Christopher Steele and his wife’s ties with shady opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

“Republicans are to allege that Ohr played a key role in selling the dossier, commissioned by Fusion GPS and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee. They are likely to ask why Ohr broke with protocol and kept up communication with its author, Steele, long after the FBI fired him as a source in late 2016 due to his contacts with the media,” writes Fox News.

“We are frustrated with how long this reengagement with the Bureau and Mueller is taking,” Steele wrote to Ohr. “Anything you could do to accelerate the process would be much appreciated.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.20.18

President Trump slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week; unloading on his senior aide over Bruce Ohr’s continued employment at the Department of Justice after recent revelations surrounding his relationship with the ‘Dirty Dossier.’

The President called-out Sessions Monday morning in a scathing post on social media, asking “Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions ‘Justice’ Department? A total joke!”

The President has routinely criticized Sessions over a host of issues; including his refusal to shut down the Mueller probe and his decision to recuse himself from all matters pertaining to the Trump campaign.
