FBI: Deep-State Collusion

It’s not just the obstruction of a pro-Hillary official; it’s undisclosed meetings with the fake dossier creator.

If you thought it was bad that an FBI agent involved in the Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and Michael Flynn investigations was sending pro-Hillary texts to his mistress, an FBI lawyer, while editing legally vital language regarding Clinton’s email scandal, the latest revelation may be even worse.

Fox News’ James Rosen reports that the FBI’s Bruce Ohr “was demoted this week amid an ongoing investigation into his contacts with the opposition research firm responsible for the anti-Trump ‘dossier.’” That would be the fake Clinton-funded dossier that got the ball rolling with the whole Trump/Russia collusion nonsense, which in turn led to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The same dossier the FBI considered underwriting.

Rosen adds, “Ohr met during the 2016 campaign with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the ‘dossier.’ … Additionally, House investigators have determined that Ohr met shortly after the election with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS — the opposition research firm that hired Steele to compile the dossier with funds supplied by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.”

Who is Ohr? Byron York notes, “The department’s Bruce Ohr, a career official, served as associate deputy attorney general at the time of the campaign. That placed him just below the deputy attorney general, Sally Yates, who ran the day-to-day operations of the department. In 2016, Ohr’s office was just steps away from Yates, who was later fired for defying President Trump’s initial travel ban executive order and still later became a prominent anti-Trump voice upon leaving the Justice Department.”

So, along with Peter Strzok, Ohr becomes the second FBI official demoted or reassigned for actions during the investigation of Trump. Ohr’s case could be even more significant, however, because these were not interviews that were part of the investigation; they seem to be another kind of meeting. And he was even higher up in the Obama “Justice” Department than Strzok. And, like Strzok’s actions, it was information not disclosed by the FBI to House investigators, despite subpoenas covering such contacts. The House Intelligence Committee now plans to compel Ohr’s testimony.

Barack Obama politicized and weaponized all sorts of executive agencies, from the IRS to the EPA. Now, with such bias and corruption ensnaring even some within the FBI, is it any wonder Americans don’t trust the government?

Update: Now it turns out Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion. Oh what a tangled web…
