Attorney Bruce Ohr, an Obama holdover in the Department of Justice, kept Andrew Weissmann — Robert Mueller’s deputy — in the loop about the dirty “Trump Dossier” that was used to kick-start Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian collusion with the 2016 Trump campaign.
“This is a dramatic and stunning development that should effectively end Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation,” said attorney Gregg Jarrett, author of the No. 1 bestseller, The Russia Hoax. “In fact, he should immediately fire Andrew Weissman and terminate his special counsel probe.”
Jarrett made the remarks during a panel discussion with Judge Jeanine Pirro and investigative reporter Sara Carter on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show.
Notably, Ohr kept Weissmann and a handful of other anti-Trump DOJ officials informed about the dirty dossier that his wife, Nellie Ohr, concocted at Fusion GPS, Fox News‘ Catherine Herridge reported.
Ohr did all this while hiding the fact that he benefited financially from the dossier from the judge who approved the bogus FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign officials.
“[The dirty dossier] was the main part of the Russia hoax, and Andrew Weissmann was in on the hoax,” Jarrett noted. “Andrew Weissman — the main lawyer on the special counsel’s probe — relied on false intelligence…Weissmann was complicit in using a false document to frame Donald Trump.”
Here are the anti-Trump members of the Mueller investigation (which is supposed to be impartial and nonpartisan) who knew about the dubious provenance of the discredited “Trump Dossier.”
Despite their knowledge that the dossier contained discredited allegations compiled by the wife of one of their colleagues, these senior FBI officials kept up the charade that they had “evidence” to continue the fruitless Mueller probe:
- Andrew McCabe (former deputy director of the FBI)
- Andrew Weissmann (current deputy on Robert Mueller investigation)
- Lisa Page (former FBI attorney)
- Peter Strzok (former deputy assistant director of FBI’s counterintelligence division)
- Unnamed current FBI agent who worked with Strzok.
- Unnamed current DOJ official.
The dossier was used as the basis of the Mueller probe, which to date has produced no evidence of collusion.
Bruce Ohr benefited financially because his wife Nellie Ohr worked at Fusion GPS, the purveyor of the dirty dossier. Investigative reporter Sara Carter pointed out that Ohr did not report on his financial disclosure forms how much money Nellie Ohr made in 2016 to manufacture the bogus dossier. It’s believed that Nellie pocketed a substantial amount of money.
“Remember, she’s a Russia expert and fluent in Russian,” Carter said. “She was hired by Fusion GPS to work on the dossier specifically.”
Fusion GPS relied on unsubstantiated (and discredited) claims by former British spy Christopher Steele, who openly hated President Trump and was fired by the FBI as an asset because he was caught lying to the FBI on numerous occasions.
While Obama holdovers at the upper levels of the FBI contort themselves to justify the feckless Mueller investigation, the FBI bent over backwards to let Hillary Clinton off the hook despite a mountain of evidence suggesting she endangered national security with her unsecured private email server.
As BizPac Review previously reported, less than 1% of Hillary’s emails discovered on the laptop of Anthony Weiner were examined by the FBI during its 2016 investigation of Hillary’s home-grown server.
Why? Because Trump-hating FBI official Peter Strzok — an avowed Hillary superfan — personally handpicked just 3,000 (out of 700,000) of Hillary’s emails for the FBI to review before the agency closed its investigation.
If all this combined doesn’t prove that Robert Mueller’s Russia witch hunt is rigged, what does?

President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, weighed in, saying Bruce Ohr apparently committed a felony (among other transgressions).
What are the odds the DOJ or Mueller have begun an investigation of Bruce Ohr for violating 18 USC sec. 208? That’s a federal felony unless he disclosed all facts to the DOJ and has a written waiver. How many of you know what that is?

Ohr’s wife was financially benefitted by Ohr, a DOJ official, advancing the Steele phony dossier. Her firm got some part of the $1.02 million paid by Hillary and DNC. A crime unless he has a written waiver from Obama’s politicized DOJ which is possible.
