Republicans untangled another thread of the Russia collusion conspiracy.
Members of Congress dragged a Deep State agent in for questioning.
And this rogue member of government had the worst day of his life.
Republicans hauled Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr in for closed door questioning.
Ohr worked with Christopher Steele to pass his fake news dossier to high ranking FBI officials after the FBI terminated their confidential human source agreement with Steele.
Gaetz, emerging from the interview after nearly two hours, said Ohr appeared to be answering questions forthrightly but that his testimony about the timing of his contacts with Fusion appeared to conflict with answers given to lawmakers by Fusion GPS cofounder Glenn Simpson and former FBI attorney Lisa Page.
“Either Bruce Ohr’s lying or Glenn Simpson’s lying,” Gaetz said, describing “a number of factual conflicts” between their testimony. He added that they could conceivably have competing recollections but that it will be important to bring both before the Judiciary Committee in a public hearing to sort out the facts.
Gaetz, Meadows and Issa told reporters that Ohr’s testimony revealed that the FBI had more significant doubts about the credibility of the Steele dossier than the bureau revealed when it applied for a court-ordered surveillance warrant on a former Trump campaign adviser, Carter Page, in October 2016.
“Not only did the FBI know that the dossier was unverified, but they also knew that there were real credibility issues where it would never end up in a courtroom,” Meadows said.
Republicans came out of the first part of the meeting with Ohr stating that Ohr and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson gave contradictory testimony.
Republicans refused to give up on this investigation in the face of mainstream media mockery.
They dug and dug and dug until they uncovered significant breakthroughs.
Ohr’s testimony puts Trump and the GOP one step closer to bringing down the Deep State once and for all.
