Nellie Ohr -wife of embattled DOJ official Bruce Ohr- will testify before Congress over her role behind the debunked ‘Trump Dossier’ and her relationship with shady opposition research firm Fusion GPS.
According to the Daily Caller, Ohr will speak with Congressional leaders in the coming days over potential political bias ahead of the 2016 election cycle, when she reportedly worked for Fusion GPS.
“Republican lawmakers have questioned the Ohrs’ relationship to Fusion GPS and Steele. The husband-and-wife duo met with Steele on July 30, 2016, a day before the FBI opened its counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia. Nellie Ohr began working for Fusion GPS in December 2015. Congressional sources have told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Fusion approached Ohr for the job,” writes the DC.
Bruce Ohr appeared before Congress in August, answering multiple questions surrounding his relationship with former British Spy Christopher Steele and the ‘dossier.’

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.
