The GOP reps are drooling at the mouth at the chance to question Nellie Ohr after her husband Bruce lit up the committee with his explosive testimony. Nellie, a communist sympathizer, who thinks Stalin was just a wee bit extreme, worked for Fusion GPS. She worked on the Hillary Dossier and was in close contact with Christopher Steele. She even bought a ham radio and got her license. That could be to frustrate the NSA and to keep them from recording her calls. No one who put in for FISA warrants mentioned her in the applications, even though Bruce said they were well aware of her employment.

Numerous congressional sources are telling SaraACarter.com that after Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr’s explosive closed-door testimony on Tuesday, lawmakers are gearing up to call his wife, Nellie Ohr, in for questioning regarding her work with the now-embattled research firm, Fusion GPS. Congress is also seeking access to Bruce Ohr’s text messages and emails with top FBI officials.
Nellie Ohr, a Russia expert who was hired by Fusion GPS in 2016 to investigate the Trump campaign, received multiple large sum payments from the research firm, according to a U.S. official, with direct knowledge of the payments.
The U.S. official did not disclose the amount of money paid to Bruce Ohr’s wife through Simpson’s firm, but said it “was not chump change, that much I can say.”
Lawmakers are also seeking all communications – texts and emails – between Bruce Ohr and top officials at the FBI. During Ohr’s testimony, he disclosed that he was communicating with former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Attorney Lisa Page and former FBI Special Agent Peter Stzrok, which was confirmed by Ohr’s handwritten notes obtained by lawmakers, as first reported by this outlet. McCabe was fired from his role at the FBI earlier this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after it was discovered by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz that he leaked information to the media and lied multiple times to investigators. Page left the FBI earlier this year and her lover, Strzok, was fired by the new FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich earlier this month.
The DOJ says that Bruce never told them that Nellie worked for Fusion GPS, even though the FBI knew. It was not included on Bruce’s financial disclosure form. That is a criminal offense.
