Hillary Clinton operatives fed the FBI with false information on President Donald Trump and his advisers in the months following the 2016 elections, new documents reveal.
These are the notes from an interview (known as 302s) conducted by the FBI with agent Bruce Ohr in 2016, then associate deputy attorney general at the Department of Justice, that were obtained by the conservative investigative group Judicial Watch.
“These new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and State Department to dig up dirt on President Trump using the conflicted Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.
According to the independent organization, “Ohr was corruptly used by the FBI as a conduit to Clinton spy Christopher Steele and the Clinton-DNC spy ring at Fusion GPS.”
Steele is a former British spy, author of the so-called Steele Dossier, a private intelligence document funded through the Fusion GPS signature by the National Democratic Committee that allegedly proved Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.
The Washington Times has compared the 34 pages of interviews with Ohr to the Mueller Report, which finally found no evidence of the Russian plot, and revealed that the former official had “sold” false information.
According to the media’s investigation, Ohr, “a Fusion operative and therefore a Clinton operative gained access to senior FBI officials in 2016-17.”
“He fed the FBI with a constant diet of conspiracies while the agents were watching Trump’s allies,” the Washington Times said.
The documents corroborate that Ohr knew that the accusations of Fusion were being handed over to the Clinton campaign, explained the Times.
For example, Ohr told the FBI that there was a secret server at Trump Tower that was secretly connected to Alpha Bank, Russia’s largest bank run by someone very close to Vladimir Putin.
However, the Mueller Report, although it talks about the bank in question, did not mention anything about the supposed server.
According to the Washington Examiner, Ohr delivered two anti-Trump databases to the FBI on USB sticks.
One of them included Steele’s numerous accusations against Trump.
The other came from Mr. Ohr’s wife, Nellie, who worked at Fusion as an expert in Russia.
Both databases became official FBI evidence, however the Mueller Report, which examined all this alleged evidence, concluded that there had been no Russian collusion in the elections in favor of Donald Trump’s victory.
Bruce Ohr was removed from his position as deputy attorney general on Dec. 6, 2017, when it was discovered that he was actively conspiring against President Trump with others (including his wife Nellie Ohr) inside and outside the Department of Justice.
