Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on the widening scandal surrounding DOJ official Bruce Ohr; saying there’s now “no doubt” anti-Trump agents committed “fraud” against FISA court judges.
“We are blowing this case about Bruce Ohr wide open. We learned that Bruce Ohr said that he understood the Steele Dossier would never have been accepted in a court of law, he understood it,” said Hannity.
“He said the FBI knew about the seedy relationship with Steele. There’s no doubt that a conspiracy to commit fraud against FISA court judges did -in fact- take place,” he added.

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

STEELE NERVES: Bruce Ohr and Christopher Steele TERRIFIED Over Comey Firing, Feared ‘EXPOSURE’
A treasure trove of recently released communications between the DOJ’s Bruce Ohr and former British spy Christopher Steele reveal both men were ‘highly concerned’ over James Comey’s firing; admitting they feared ‘exposure’ following his removal.
According to Fox News, a series of emails, texts, and handwritten notes show both men were deeply disturbed by Comey’s termination, with Ohr saying that Steele “was very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey’s firing — afraid they will be exposed.”
“The Ohr documents shed more light on Steele’s activities before the presidential election. While Steele shopped the dossier to multiple media outlets, he also appeared to ask Ohr for help with a Russian oligarch — Oleg Deripaska — after rumors the U.S. might impose sanctions,” writes Fox News.
“Very concerned about Comey’s firing, afraid they will be exposed,” said Bruce Ohr. DOJ’s Emails & Notes show Bruce Ohr’s connection to (phony & discredited) Trump Dossier. A creep thinking he would get caught in a dishonest act. Rigged Witch Hunt!
