DOJ is a rotten agency. Justice in the US has been corrupted by Obama, it continues under Sessions. They teamed up with Clinton, Steele and Fusion GPS to take down Trump
The Justice Department, including the FBI, that President Trump and Attorney General Sessions inherited was a stinking open sewer, and that was before they put Rod Rosenstein on staff as the Deputy Attorney General.
Now it’s as conflicted and corrupt as any agency can possibly be. AG Sessions has publicly heaped praise on in congressional hearings and elsewhere upon both Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray. If he truly believes that then he’s in the wrong job and no match for the cesspool that he oversees. It’s not only corrupt, but open rebellion and attacks on the American people and our President are a daily staple.
Now comes word that someone, hopefully an awakening Sessions, demoted a senior official at DOJ, Bruce G. Ohr. It happened as a result of revelations uncovered as part of an ongoing investigation into his contacts with Fusion GPS, the Clinton-financed smear machine contracted to put a political hit on President Trump, based upon the phony Russia dossier.
It is strongly suspected that the phony dossier Clinton paid Fusion GPS to create, with lies and false information purchased from Russian agents, was used as the basis for the unmasking and surveillance by FBI and US intelligence agencies of the Trump team. Now that fear seems even more plausible, given Mr. Ohr’s incriminating conduct.
Evidence gathered by Devin Nunes’ House Intel Committee shows that Ohr met during the presidential campaign with dossier author Christopher Steele. Fox News quotes a DOJ official as saying, “It is unusual for anyone to wear two hats as he has done recently. This person is going to go back to a single focus—director of our organized crime and drug enforcement unit. As you know, combating transnational criminal organizations and drug trafficking is a top priority for the attorney general.”
We would hope it’s even more unusual for an employee who is found to have engaged in suspect criminal or compromised behavior to be allowed to maintain one of those two positions or any other at DOJ. Considering that the severity of the offense was enough to prompt his being stripped of his position as Rosenstein’s associate deputy attorney general, why isn’t he on unpaid leave and under investigation?
But it gets worse. House investigators also have learned that Ohr met in the immediate aftermath of the election with smear merchant Glenn Simpson, a Fusion GPS founder and owner, who worked for Hillary Clinton.
The fact that these meetings took place and have been covered up by is damning evidence that indicates the corrupt Lynch Justice Department was working in a coordinated illegal manner with the FBI and Hillary Clinton to take out candidate and later president Donald Trump. It also indicates the DOJ complicity at the top is still ongoing under Sessions.
It helps to explain, though there are likely a multitude of other examples, why DOJ and the FBI have refused to cooperate with the House and Senate investigations into the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax and their own collusion and now face the very real threat of contempt of Congress charges for ignoring subpoenas. They’re dirty to the core and cooperating will have the same effect as a confession.
Fox News reports that, according to their sources, Simpson and Ohr met around Thanksgiving time last year, as President Trump was selecting his cabinet. They say the two discussed the Fusion dossier over coffee, the Russia, Russia, Russia witch hunt and what Simpson considered the “distressing development” of President Trump’s election.
The history of the relationship between Ohr and Simpson, and exactly how they came to be in contact with each other, is still under investigation. At this phase of the probe it appears they were put in touch with each other by Steele, who they describe as also being a former FBI informant known to Ohr since 2006.
Rep Nunes issued another subpoena on Thursday that specifically addresses the Ohr matter and the production of his files. Sessions has either not allowed or failed to demand his underlings cooperate to this point. It certainly appears he’s actively involved in the cover up as well.
