Anti-Trump DOJ Official Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, is refusing to testify to Congress about he involvement in the anti-Trump dossier. Mrs. Ohr worked for Fusion GPS, the source of the dossier, and is an expert on Russia.
According to The Daily Caller:
Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is refusing to appear before Congress for a closed-door hearing that was scheduled to take place this Friday, sources tell The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Ohr, who worked for Fusion GPS, the firm behind the Steele dossier, was scheduled to appear for interviews during a joint session with the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform committees. But two congressional sources said that she is not cooperating with the requests and will have to be subpoenaed to compel her appearance.
Ohr was slated to appear before the committees to discuss her work for Fusion GPS. Ohr, an expert on Russian affairs, worked for Fusion GPS from December 2015 until just after the election.
Bruce Ohr, the former assistant deputy attorney general, was in contact with dossier author Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson before and after the election.
The Ohr’s both met with Steele, the former British spy in Washington and Ohr discussed this meeting with then Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. It appears that Congress is trying to get to the bottom of what was discussed in these meetings.
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte is considering subpoenaing Mrs. Ohr.
