4:05 PM ET – John Solomon, of The Hill, is here with breaking news. His latest piece exposes Bruce and Nellie Ohr:
By his own account, senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr played an essential — and unorthodox — role, carrying politically tainted allegations of Donald Trump-Russia collusion to the FBI during the 2016 election.
First, it was unverified intelligence starting in July 2016 from Trump-hating former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russia dossier.
Next, it was sketchy intelligence starting in August 2016 from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, an opposition-research contractor who hired Steele and was paid to help Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign develop research on Trump.
But Ohr has admitted to Congress that he also took Russia dirt that his wife, Nellie, assembled against Trump on a computer drive and then delivered it to the FBI in 2016 — a revelation that has raised fresh concerns in Congress about a possible conflict of interest.
Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS and, for a time, worked on the same Clinton-financed Russian research project as Steele, according to testimony I reviewed.
DOJ ethics rules forbid department officials from working in cases where a spouse has a financial interest, a prohibition that Bruce Ohr said he knew about when he forwarded his wife’s evidence to the FBI.
\The way Ohr describe it, his wife’s work was essentially another dossier assembled from Fusion’s own AntiTrumo research and designed to augment Steele’s own work.
“She (Nellie Ohr) provided me with a memory stick that included research she had done for Fusion GPS on various Russian figures,” Ohr said in testimony gathered last year by congressional investigators that remain secret.
4:30 PM ET – Bill O’Reilly, Media Personality and author of Killing the SS: The Hunt for the Worst War Criminals in History, stops by to talk about the news so far this week. From the Smollett investigation and fake news hoaxes to the widening democratic field, there is no shortage of news from the left.
5:05 PM ET – Lin Wood, attorney for the Covington Catholic School children, is speaking out for the first time about the case he is taking against the media and those who wrongfully, and disgustingly accused his clients of things that never occurred. This time the rush to judgment will be met with a call for justice for the wrongly accused, to the tune of a $250 million against the Washington Post, to start.
Lin’s exclusive statement for the Sean Hannity Show:
“An attorney’s duties to his or her client do not begin inside the courtroom door. My co-counsel, Todd McMurtry, and I fully intend to aggressively advocate for Nick, not only in courts of law across the country, but also in the court of public opinion. An agenda-driven mob trampled on Nick’s reputation and permanently damaged him. Now Nick has no choice except to fight back against the lies and threats. His weapon of choice is the truth. This video is a first step as it destroys the mob’s false narrative against this young man:
• Nick did not approach Nathan Phillips – he was confronted by Phillips who picked Nick as his target.
• Nick did not block Phillips’ path – Phillips made no attempt to get around or avoid Nick.
• Nick did not verbally assault, taunt, mock, harass, disparage or threaten Phillips in any way– Nick remained calm and well-mannered despite Phillips’ loud chants and drum-beating inches from his face. Nick did not utter one word.
• Nick’s only act was to quietly urge a classmate to refrain from any comments that might aggravate the situation created by Phillips and the Black Hebrew Israelites.
• Phillips did not proceed to the Lincoln Memorial after Nick left to catch his bus. Phillips turned and walked away, celebrating his “win” with his fellow activists.
This video reveals the truth that an agenda-driven media continues to hide from the public.
The truth exonerates Nick and indicts those members of the mob who viciously attacked him while ignoring the truth. As we proceed in the coming days to pursue justice for Nick in courts of law, the truth shall remain the most powerful of all weapons.”
