@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept #BruceOhr told @FBI agents during a Nov. 2016, interview that “reporting on Trump’s ties to Russia were going to the [@HillaryClinton] campaign, Jon Winer at the U.S. State Department and the FBI,” according to notes made public by @JudicialWatch.
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch .@JudicialWatch has repeatedly used the #FOIA to break major stories in the #RussiaInvestigation saga, and released 34 pages of @FBI 302s, the form agents use to document their interviews. judicialwatch.org/documents/jw-v…
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch Special Counsel #RobertMueller concluded in April 2019 that there was #NoCollusion between any Trump campaign aide and Russians.

The latest docs were obtained in @JudicialWatch’s lawsuit following the gov't’s failure to respond to its Aug. 6, 2018, #FOIA seeking the Form 302s.
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch #BruceOhr was removed from his position in December 2017 for failing to disclose his wife #NellieOhr’s employment with #FusionGPS, the opposition research firm at the center of the investigation. Nellie Ohr is a #Russian specialist.
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch #BruceOhr functioned as the key point man within #DOJ for distributing unverified anti-Trump materials #Steele gathered from #Russian sources.

Steele was retained by #FusionGPS for the task and was paid by @HillaryClinton’s campaign and the @DNC then under her control.
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch @DNC Steele's materials were compiled into the infamous #SteeleDossier that was used by @FBI to obtain #FISA warrants to spy on @CarterWPage.

In the interview, #BruceOhr told the FBI that Steele was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected…”
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch @DNC @carterwpage The note also said “Ohr knew that Glen Simpson and others talking to Victoria Nuland at the U.S. State Department.”

Simpson is president of #FusionGPS, who was retained by @PerkinsCoieLLP, a prominent #Washington law firm that represented @DNC & the @HillaryClinton campaign.
@realDonaldTrump @HillaryClinton @BarackObama @FBI @StateDept @JudicialWatch @DNC @carterwpage @PerkinsCoieLLP Other notes released by @JudicialWatch show:
• On Dec. 20, 2016, #BruceOhr provided @FBI with his wife’s #FusionGPS research, “which contained the totality” of her work “but the Fusion GPS header was stripped.”
• On Jan. 23, 2017, Ohr told the FBI that #Steele told him that…
#Steele “spoke with a staff member of Sen. John McCain’s office sometime prior to October 2016.”
• The @FBI interviews show that #Ohr repeatedly texted and talked to Steele using @WhatsApp.
• On Feb. 2, 2016, the FBI told Ohr to see if Steele would be “comfortable getting…
… the name of an FBI agent” as a contact. #Ohr tells the agents that @StateDept official Katheen Kavalec spoke with “Steele several times prior to the U.S. presidential election and believed Steele’s reporting to have [been] generated mainly from [REDACTED].”
• On Feb. 14, 2017, #Ohr told @FBI that #Steele communicated with him via Facetime that Steele was “beginning to worry about his business.”

Steele discussed brokering new business with the FBI and told Ohr ‘you may see me re-emerge in a couple of weeks.”
• On May 3, 2017, #Steele called #Ohr to tell him that he “had been worried about former FBI Director James Comey’s then-upcoming testimony to Congress, especially his response to questions that would be raised by [Sen. Chuck] Grassley.”
“These new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and [State Dept] to dig up dirt on President Trump using…Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,” @JudicialWatch President @TomFitton said. judicialwatch.org/press-releases…
@JudicialWatch @TomFitton “The FISA courts weren’t informed of this corrupted process when they were asked to approve and reapprove extraordinary spy warrants targeting President Trump,” @TomFitton added.
@JudicialWatch @TomFitton @JudicialWatch previously uncovered docs showing #BruceOhr received a $28,000 bonus during the period covered by the 302s. An Obama appointee, #BruceOhr worked for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The $28,000 bonus was nearly double his previous bonus of $14,500 in 2015.
@JudicialWatch @TomFitton “These documents will raise questions as to whether the conflicted Bruce Ohr, who the FBI used to launder information from Christopher Steele was rewarded for his role in the illicit targeting of President Trump,” @TomFitton said in a June 7 statement. judicialwatch.org/press-releases…
