Sara Carter just exposed some suspicious payments made by Ex-President Obama’s DOJ, led at the time by Loretta Lynch, herself famous for the Bill Clinton tarmac meeting, to Bruce Ohr.
Bruce Ohr has come under attack for his role in the Russia investigation and Sara Carter wants and deserves some answers.
On her page SaraCarter, she posted an article saying that the Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr – who was a back-channel for the former British spy who compiled the anti-President Trump dossier, has received a total of $42,520 in performance bonuses from the Justice Department.
He received the bonuses after being demoted for a conflict of interest and for not informing his superiors that his wife, Nellie Ohr, was working for the embattled research firm Fusion GPS, which hired former British spy Christoper Steele to compile the now debunked dossier.
According to documents unearthed by Judicial Watch, after Ohr’s removal from his position as Associate Attorney General in 2017 and later after his transfer from the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force to International Affairs in 2018, he “received a total of $42,520 in performance bonuses during the Trump/Russia investigation. Ohr’s bonus nearly doubled from $14,520 (received in November 2015) to $28,000 in November 2016.”
The president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, stressed that 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 Donald Trump.”
Judicial Watch filed for the documents last year in January, but it took more than one year for the documents to actually be obtained from the Justice Department, as the group reported.
“The documents show that on November 13, 2016, Ohr was given a performance award of $28,000,” states the watchdog.
“This was during the time of his deep involvement in the highly controversial Justice Department surveillance of the Trump presidential campaign. The bonus was nearly double the $14,250 performance award he was given on November 29, 2015.”
Ohr was removed from his Associate Deputy position due to conflict of interest because his wife was working exclusively for the founder of Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson on the Russia investigation.
Nellie Ohr is a Russia expert, believed to speak Russian fluently and was also using her husband to pass information from Fusion GPS, as multiple emails obtained by Judicial Watch have shown.
