Here's the documents, I don't remember them being there when the article was published but I don't know if I scrolled all the way down:…
I wonder if Bruce and Nellie Ohr put the cost of the treason breakfast on the DOJ expense account or Fusion GPS expense account?
Was Nellie Ohr hired by Fusion GPS after that breakfast? Why would Steele email Bruce Ohr about Simpson wanting to meet if Nellie was already working for him? Couldn't she just have told her husband he wanted to meet?

Looking for the date she was hired now. Breakfast 7/30/16
I can not find the freaking date she was hired for the life of me. If anyone can, please let me know.

This timeline courtesy of @TheLastRefuge2 now has me all sorts of confused. If Nellie Ohr was working with Steele for months before, that 7/30/16 meeting and emails were cover?
From that article:
From Simpsons testimony, he said that the context of him setting up the meeting with Bruce Ohr was after the election, around thanksgiving, and they didn't know if anyone at the top of the government knew or not! The email says Glenn knew 7/30/16 that Steele met with Ohr! Uh oh!
From the John Solomon article:

"Calendar notations and handwritten notes indicate Ohr followed up on Steele’s offer and met with Simpson on Aug. 22, 2016."

UH OH that's before the election
So on 3/7/17 Steele texts Bruce Ohr that he is freaking out about a Grassley letter. Not just him "we" (Fusion GPS?)

Here's a letter from 3/6/17 that Grassley sent Comey about Christopher Steele! Let's check this out next!
Grassley mentions a Washington Post article from February 2017 talking about the FBI paying Christopher Steele before the election. How freaking ridiculous is the Washington Post being in a FISA warrant and on all these government documents. Their fake news stink is all over this

Here's how WAPO describes the reasons that Steele and the FBI stopped communicating directly. It's not that he was fired for leaking, no, its because his dossier "became" (magically I imagine) the subject of news stories, congressional inquiries, and Trumps denials.
freaking WAPO full of fake news about what happened. They're claiming that the dossier being released by buzzfeed after Trump was briefed was the development that marked the end of the FBI's relationship with Steele, but the Page FISA shows it was around October and cuz of leaks
The Senate Intelligence Committee is referenced twice in this article, very interesting, this article is full of real news and a few fake news parts of it. Part of the leak hunt?
Back to the Grassley letter!

"According to the Washington Post, the FBI’s arrangement with Mr. Steele fell
through when the media published his dossier and revealed his identity"

"The Committee requires additional information to evaluate this situation."

Did he know already?
lol I knew my phrasing was awful for those two. The WAPO article has real information about Steele in it but also fake parts, like the fact he was fired by the FBI in January 2017 even though he was really fired "around October" 2016.

Back to the Grassley letter! I think we know why Steele was freaked out and asking Bruce Ohr about it now!

"Were any other government officials outside of the FBI involved in discussing or authorizing the agreement with Mr. Steele, including anyone from the (DOJ)..."
Also from the letter, Grassley asking about the dossier being used in relation to National Security Letters.

Freaking Grassley has been all over this, even in the middle of the plot he was all over them! Asking questions that we now know the answer to but it's like he did then
Grassley all over Steele and the DOJ and FBI working together using Steele, continuously at that point, and asking Comey to admit it, Steele messaging Ohr demanding they talk so he can be reassured.

What a complete insane clown show, before the Special Counsel even.
3/6/17 Grassley asks Comey if the FBI used the dossier in the FISA warrant.

Grassley says that some things he asked for may be classified, says to send classified materials to The Office of Senate Security.

Wolfe, the director of Security for the SSCI texts Watkins 3/17/17
That's the last document/article. Sure looks to me like the WAPO article that freaked out Steele could have had deliberately false information in it as part of the leak hunt. Looks like Simpson probably committed perjury too. So much to digest here. And a lot to learn yet /end
ADDENDUM: Great article, he is the best in the business, but I'm still looking for a direct source to the date she was hired by Fusion GPS. If anyone has that (or the month) with a verifiable source please let me know!
