Well, our favorite twice demoted DOJ official fail to disclose in ethics documents that his was wife was working for Fusion GPS, and failed to list how much she was being paid.

I guess it slipped his mind.

Bruce could be looking at jail time for this.

BTW: I just read an interesting article that made a pretty good case that Bruce Ohr has flipped, and is fully cooperating.


Bruce Ohr, the Department of Justice official who brought opposition research on President Donald Trump to the FBI, did not disclose that Fusion GPS, which performed that research at the Democratic National Committee’s behest, was paying his wife, and did not obtain a conflict of interest waiver from his superiors at the Justice Department, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

The omission may explain why Ohr was demoted from his post as associate deputy attorney general after the relationship between Fusion GPS and his wife emerged and Fusion founder Glenn Simpson acknowledged meeting with Ohr. Willfully falsifying government ethics forms can carry a penalty of jail time, if convicted.

That's the kind of thing that should get you 10 years in prison.

Why not? All the people you thought would be there to welcome and promote you might be facing jail time too. Better to be the first to flip and get the shortest sentence.

Of course it does. Those two didn't want the light shined on their cockroaches because it would have shown that they are the egg layers.

It tells us Bruce Ohr could very well be cooperation with the investigation.

Someone pointed out a very interesting piece of information that I missed.

In the Nunes memo, Bruce Ohr revealed that Steele told him that he was desperate to keep Trump from getting elected.

Remember Ohr has not testified to congress, so who did Ohr tell this to?

Bruce Ohr is talking to somebody, either investigators in the DOJ, or the IG.

There is reason to believe that Ohr, Priestap, Strzok, and Paige may be cooperating with investigators, things could get very interesting when the IG report comes out in about a month.

Also, don't forget that there are two separate sources now that confirm that Obama was being briefed on everything that was going on. This scandal has already gone all the way to the White House, directly to President Obama.


I notice a distinct lack of democrats in this thread, I wonder if we are approaching the point where they can no longer deny that the Russian investigation is being exposed as being highly dubious, if not outright fraudulent.

I've noticed a lot of finger pointing at Christopher Steele lately. Not at Obama and Hillary for coordinating the conspiracy, not at the FBI and the intelligence services for using their spy powers, not at the FISC for their sloppy treatment of the FISA requests, and especially not at the MSM for helping promote the conspiracy.

If I was Christopher Steele I'd be using the money the Hillary campaign and GPS Fusion paid me to find a good lawyer and flip as fast as I can because the Democrats plan on hanging this whole thing on Steele.

You nailed it! That will be just the excuse Obama uses.

Just wait, everyone is talking to their lawyers and coordinating their talking points. The MSM will push the tidal wave of bs we're about to get hit with and you folks will all line up and chant it was all Trump's fault anyway.

Ohr has flipped (but you already know that, wink-wink). Any of the FBI/DOJ people that are under investigation & are still employed have flipped. That's why they're still employed. They're no longer the targets. McCabe, Comey, Meuller & Rosenstein are the targets now. Once they're exposed, they in turn will flip & it's on to Susan Rice, Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch, et al. Once they're exposed, well you know where it goes from there.
