Much of the dossier has been discredited by the Mueller report and Ohr was removed from the Mueller investigation for his conflicts of interest. It is unclear what he was able to affect before he left though.
Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, did extensive opposition research on Trump family members and campaign aides while working for the firm behind the salacious anti-Trump dossier in 2016, according to a newly released transcript of her closed-door interview with Congress.
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins, R-Ga., on Thursday released nearly 200 pages of Ohr’s transcript from her interview before the panel last year. Her work with opposition research firm Fusion GPS was already known, but the documents offer additional details on the nature of that research.
While she largely did not work on the dossier itself, her research included looking into alleged relationships between then-candidate Donald Trump and Russian organized crime, the interview shows. She revealed that she was also instructed to conduct research on members of the Trump family, as well as individuals associated with the Trump campaign.
“I was asked to research Trump’s family broadly in connection with any—any Russian connections,” Ohr stated, adding that she “did some research on all of them, but not in much depth.”
