Sessions Exploring Special Counsel For Demoted DOJ Official Tied To Fusion GPS, CIA


 

In a statement issued hours after Sekulow's appearance on Fox News, Sessions said: "I've put a Senior Attorney, with the resources he may need, to review cases in our office and make a recommendation to me, if things aren't being pursued that need to be pursued, if cases may need more resources to complete in a proper manner, and to recommend to me if the standards for a special counsel are met, and the recommended one should be established" according to Fox News journalist Jake Gibson via Twitter:  


Bruce and Nellie Ohr

Sekulow made the call after a Fox News report revealed that senior DOJ Official Bruce Ohr was demoted for concealing his meetings with Fusion GPS, the firm behind the infamous Trump-Russia dossier. Fox also revealed that Ohr's wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS as well as the CIA.  As reported by Fox News, a senior Justice Department official demoted last week for concealing his meetings with the men behind the anti-Trump “dossier” had even closer ties to Fusion GPS, the firm responsible for the incendiary document, than have been disclosed, Fox News has confirmed: The official’s wife worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election.

Contacted by Fox News, investigators for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) confirmed that Nellie H. Ohr, wife of the demoted official, Bruce G. Ohr, worked for the opposition research firm last year. The precise nature of Mrs. Ohr’s duties – including whether she worked on the dossier – remains unclear but a review of her published works available online reveals Mrs. Ohr has written extensively on Russia-related subjects. HPSCI staff confirmed to Fox News that she was paid by Fusion GPS through the summer and fall of 2016.

And as we reported earlier today, Nellie Ohr not only worked for Fusion GPS, but also represented the CIA's "Open Source Works" group at a 2010 "working group report on international organized crime." 

House investigators also determined that during the 2016 election, Bruce Ohr met with former MI6 spy Christopher Steele, and shortly after the 2016 election he met with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS - who commissioned Steele to assemble the dossier. 

Meanwhile, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe cancelled a scheduled Tuesday morning testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee amid the revelations concerning the Ohrs. 

As we reported in November, Sessions is also reportedly entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia. A letter obtained by the Washington Post shows Sessions directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of these matters and report back to him and his top deputy, Rod Rosenstein, as to whether the DOJ should follow up with a full-blown investigation.

When asked by Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) "What's it going to take to actually get a special counsel" in the Uranium One scandal, Sessions replied "It would take a factual basis... I would say, 'looks like' is not enough basis to appoint a special counsel." 

Well, Jeff, it 'looks like' the Ohrs have been caught red handed with deep ties to the DNC and Clinton funded opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is behind at least three failed attempts to dislodge Donald Trump from winning the 2016 election - the "dossier," the nothingburger Trump Tower meeting, and a failed attempt to link the President to billionaire pedophile Jeff Epstein.

nobody cares....lock him up now

Lock up? This guy could very well be the key to everything.

Anyone want to take an over/under on his life span? Sounds like he coupld implicate just about everyone if he got offered a plea deal in exchange for testimony.

We don't need a DOJ do-it-yourself investigation of DOJ officials--not when those officials are in a position to implicate the highest levels of DOJ managment.

At some layer down inside those organizations, CIA/FBI/DOJ, there are some hard working career people that are as pissed off as the rest of us.  Just need their help, like sexually harassed women, to step into the light and get this right.  

And:

What does "review cases in our office...."  mean?   Is that some kind of restriction on what's allowed?

How many of the senior prosecutors contributed to the Hillary campaign? Make damn sure you are vetting these people, Sessions! We don't need to see the same debacle we just went through when we thought Comey gave a shit about getting to the bottom of the Hillary emails!



herbivore's picture

Barely alive. Just alive enough to appoint a Deep State assistant, who himself was likely appointed by Obama, to "look into" the "matter". Remember, these are all mere "matters" that need to be handled by the appropriate DOJ officials who of course have impeccable credentials. Yes siree, I've no doubt Sessions will get the best possible advice money can buy.

Little Hobbit motherfucker can move like greased lightning when it's some foreigner attacking us, but God forbid it was a group of traiterous Americans launching a soft coup over our duly elected President. Then it's quite ok to move at glacial fucking speed, or not at all.

Sessions moves slower than molasses in Siberia.

Just make sure that the new Special Council wasn't working for Hillary, Hillary's lawyer, donating to Hillary, working for Fusion GPS, working for the Clinton Foundation, working for the Russians, working for Planned Parenhood, working in Hollywood, an illegal immigrant criminal from San Francisco, or an alleged victim of Trump's alleged sexual assault,

They'll probably have to hire a farm boy from Iowa and appoint him Special Council if those are your restrictions ;)

That just leaves 4 people?

Do the witch test-trial by water. 

If they sink, they drown, but they were innocent.  If they float, then they're a WITCH. 

Either way, they're still democrats.

Replace Sessions with Hank Hill’s dad, looks the same but we’d get way better results.

I don't have any faith in Jeff Sessions. He hasn't done anything so far so I doubt he'll appoint a special counsel. The old fool has fooled a lot of people.

And what about all the rest of them, Jeff?

Hey Jeff woke up. Make a big ass pot of coffee so he can say fucking awake and get to work. Lock them up!

aside from the obvious, i am wondering how many working groups like this one exist

https://twitter.com/joshdcaplan/status/940444559468892160/photo/1

and how much they get paid.

plus of course, what measurable results they deliver, if any:

maybe there are 300 such grouos, each made up of 12-16 experts, each of which get paid 10,000 and meet four times a year.

300 c 14 x 10,000 x 4 = 168 million bucks, every year.

this will have been going on for at least 25 years (since 1992?) cost = 4.2 billion. nice tax dollars if you can get them (and siphon them into a foundation in tahiti, or even haiti or some such island).

i'm probably wrong by a factor of at least ten.

point is, how are the results determined using what benchmarks (crimes prevented, dollars saved)

maybe the author got paid 25,000 for this report and there are a few thousand of these every year also, for another spend of 50 million a year for complete bullshit that goes nowhere at all - for another 1.25 billion over 25 years

https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/230846.pdf

this is all part of the swamp that tax payers pay for and get nothing back for.

lots of bullshit and tax payers money cycled back onto the tax payers back of federal debt.

might add up a lot more house and senate reports, pentagon reports, DoS reports as well as these justice reports..

more bleh
