Nellie’s better half, Bruce Ohr, is a current DOJ official who previously testified to the committee. However, now she is refusing to testify to her actions involving the dossier as an employee for Fusion GPS, and other activity surrounding the orchestration of the Russian collusion case. No ‘reasons’ were given by her or Baker who reneged today after being expect to appear.
In fact, that makes all three, Baker, Ohr, and Glenn Simpson, no shows this week. Many people wonder what they’re hiding.
Nellie was also the bridge of contact between Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele, the author of the salaction document. Other investigators believe there are strong indications Mrs. Ohr may have “actually authored a considerable portion of the Steele Dossier for use by the FBI.”
Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS was less than forthcoming during his testimony about her, and generally misled both the Senate and House intelligence committees about her activities. He has recently taken the Fifth, refusing to testify before Congress anymore.
Conservative Treehouse writes, “FBI legal counsel James Baker accompanied FBI Asst. Director ‘Andy’ McCabe to a Tuesday December 19th, 2017, congressional hearing with the House Intelligence Community.”
“Curiously, in addition to other lines of inquiry, during the questioning McCabe was asked about whether James Baker was authorized to speak to the media about the Steele Dossier and the underlying ‘counterintelligence’ operation. Asst. Director McCabe responded that Baker would not be authorized to take such action.”
Following the December 19, HPSCI hearing, republican committee leadership announced their plan to subpoena James Baker for further questioning. [Keep in mind Baker was there.]
Two days later, at the Thursday Judiciary and Oversight Committee hearings, James Baker did not accompany Andrew McCabe.
Hours later, James Baker was removed from his responsibilities as legal counsel within the FBI. Cause: ‘unknown‘. Five months later Mr. Baker resigned from the FBI.
Mr. Baker went to work with Benjamin Witts at Lawfare.”
Baker also hid the link to Hillary Clinton from the FISA court.
Many conservatives agree that the entire Russian Investigation was orchestrated by democrats, led by Hillary, and their web of deep state operatives located throughout the Justice Department, State Department and FBI.
Others have speculated that Obama was a key player in the activities too, and expect these investigations to deliver real indictments. The conduct here wasn’t some simple matter of politics, it was a planned and executed plot to retain power by directly interfering in an election.
