Notice: DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr was interviewed after the election four times [November 22nd, December: 5th, 12th, 20th, 2016] by the Obama FBI.

During those four 2016 interviews: President Obama, James Comey (FBI), Andrew McCabe (FBI), Loretta Lynch (DOJ), Sally Yates (DOJ), James Baker (FBI), Peter Strzok (FBI), Lisa Page (FBI), Jim Rybicki (FBI), Mary McCord (DOJ), Mike Kortan (FBI), Bill Priestap (FBI) and David Laufman (DOJ) were all still in place. The Inspector General investigation had not yet begun.


Why was the FBI interviewing Bruce Ohr in 2016?

Who was interviewing Bruce Ohr in 2016?

Possibility/Theory:  After candidate Donald Trump won the election the “small group”  knew Bruce and Nellie Ohr were both big risks, and weak links.

If our prior research assumptions are correct, Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr were the two key participants at the heart of the raw FBI/NSA database intelligence surveillance ‘gathering‘, and intelligence ‘laundering‘ operation.

When Admiral Mike Rogers shut down contractor access to the NSA/FBI database (April 18th, 2016) the outside group needed a workaround. That’s where DOJ official Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie Ohr come into play. {Go Deep} The DOJ side of the operation was conducted within the National Security Division (John P Carlin head). {Go Deep} The DOJ-NSD via Bruce Ohr, could use the NSA/FBI database and pass information to, and receive information from, Nellie Ohr.

Nellie was hired by Fusion-GPS immediately after Admiral Rogers shut down the FBI ‘contractor’ use of the system. Nellie would be the go-between.  Nellie, working for Fusion GPS, took the raw intel (search results) from Bruce and passed it along to Christopher Steele.

Steele washed the unlawful Ohr raw intelligence by putting it into this “dossier”, and feeding it back into the FBI.  The DOJ/FBI then used the laundered intelligence to enhance their FISA Title-1 Surveillance warrant against Carter Page to gain access to the monitor the Trump campaign, legally.

Christopher Steele would never have found anything about Carter Page on his own.  Page was a nothing-burger; however, the FBI had previously used Page in a Russian operation.

Part of the raw intelligence the FBI fed to Chris Steele through Nellie Ohr was their intel on Page.  When Steele returned the dossier to the FBI the DOJ/FBI could present Steele’s construct of Carter Page to the FISA court as ‘collaborating evidence’.

The goal of all this activity was always the surveillance on Trump. They obtained the FISA-Title1 warrant on October 21st, 2016.  All retroactive surveillance was immediately lawful.

Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr connect the activity from the DOJ (national security division) and FBI (counterintelligence division) together with Fusion GPS (Nellie’s 2016 employer, Glenn Simpson) and Christopher Steele (the recipient of the unwashed intelligence product).

Remember, the Clinton-Steele Dossier was the primary intelligence product used to get the FISA-Title-1 (near unlimited scope) Surveillance Warrant, on October 21st, 2016.

Now look:

(Nunes Memo)

Now Look:

(ODNI Media Release January 11th, 2017)

  • October 2016 “corroboration was in its infancy.” ~ Bill Priestap (FBI)
  • January 2017 “the IC has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable” ~ James Clapper

…Yet somehow on October 21st, 2016 the dossier was valid enough for a FISA warrant?  Doesn’t add up.  I digress.

Four Corners of the demonstrable justice dept. conspiracy:

  1. Exonerate Clinton
  2. Investigate/execute, IC surveillance of Trump.
  3. Collect and redistribute opposition research of Trump.
  4. The Insurance Policy.

Following the exoneration of Hillary Clinton, the next phase, the “Trump Operation”, was the need for the DOJ/FBI “small group” to have access to surveillance of Hillary Clinton’s political opposition, Donald Trump.  This was the U.S. government conducting political opposition research through a weaponized intelligence apparatus (DOJ and FBI).

Within the context of #2 and #3 you’ll note the entry and exit timeline of people connected to the same task is identical.  Christopher Steele, hired by Fusion-GPS, enters the timeline at the same time Nellie Ohr is hired by Fusion-GPS (May 2016).  Both Christopher Steele and Nellie Ohr exit the activity timeline at the same time as the FBI gets FISA Court “Title 1” surveillance authority over Carter Page, October 21st, 2016.

Everything after October 21st, 2016, when the FBI has “Title 1” surveillance authority over Carter Page and the Trump Campaign, is part of the “insurance policy”.   The Title 1 surveillance authority gave the “small group” the tools needed to execute #4, which included the 2017 “Russian Narrative” and the appointment of SC Robert Mueller.

That’s the rough outline.  Within the rough outline there are sub-chapters of how it all took place. How it all came together:  The ‘dossier’ is a sub-chapter.  The FISA warrant is a sub-chapter. Establishing Special Counsel Robert Mueller was a sub-chapter. Etc.

♦Nellie Ohr was needed because she was a go-between from Team Clinton (Fusion GPS) to her husband Bruce Ohr inside the DOJ.  Nellie Ohr relayed information into the DOJ and she extracted information from the DOJ that was passed back to Fusion-GPS and by extension Christopher Steele.

Nellie Ohr was a communication transfer hub.

♦Christopher Steele was needed because:

A) the Clinton Team (Fusion GPS) needed to wash their opposition research and have it come out as “Intelligence Product”; and B) the DOJ and FBI needed to present intelligence product to further their insurance policy goal.

The Clinton ‘opposition research,’ turned ‘intelligence product’. was carried by Nellie Ohr to Christopher Steele who then recycled it back to the FBI and DOJ and it was leaked to the media, as needed, to script the Russian narrative.  Brennan (CIA) and Clapper (ODNI) could enhance the IC product as needed [See: ‘Russian Election’ – Joint Analysis Report].

The Clinton-Steele Dossier was a collaboration. The FBI and DOJ used the Clinton-Steele Dossier, and leaks from those assembling the Clinton-Steele Dossier, as validation for an October 21st TitleI FISA surveillance warrant on Carter Page.

Three corners of the conspiracy construct relied upon the FISA “Title I” surveillance:

#2) Investigate, execute, IC surveillance of Trump; #3) Collect and redistribute opposition research of Trump; and #4) The Insurance Policy;

All three of those corners relied on the FISA surveillance warrant being granted.

Another example post-election use of the FISA surveillance was how the Intelligence Community positioned the story of Carter Page in April of 2017 to gain the Special Counsel appointment, ie. the Mueller investigation (another false construct.)

    Reading further: February 11, 2016 — Contreras orders the remaining emails to be released in four installments over the next three weeks on February 13, 19, 26 and 29.


  2. unconqueredone (Trump's American Dreamer) says:

    Question for those in the know: Does the pension McCabe or Ohr receive in any way correlate to the last position they held? In other words, can demoting them before firing them make it so they receive less? It would be apropos.


    • Rhoda R says:

      No, pensions are based on the high five years earnings regardless of when those five years occurred.


      • unconqueredone (Trump's American Dreamer) says:

        Thanks, the thought just amused me for a moment.

          It will make you feel better to learn that their pensions are dependent upon them not being convicted of a series of crimes including espionage, perjury to Congress, and a few others. Mishandling certain classified information is another (trying to remember off the top of my head).

          For this reason, I thought Sessions would let McCabe retire and fade out of public view….ala Comey… be later charged with several of the above. Maybe OPR forced his hand, maybe not. But I was one of those surprised by the firing.

    That is exactly what happened in my opinion. The FBI knew Page’s travel schedule. I believe Page was asked to call whenever he was going overseas and when he came back and report anything interesting.

    • Lurker2 says:

      It seems possible that he was a plant. But on the other hand, have you ever read through his testimony? And seen the letter(s) he sent in advance? He came across so badly. That would be completely damaging to all of his future business (whatever business he is in). Hey maybe you’re right, maybe he is an agent. Because dude seems quite incapable of keeping a real job.


      • Chuck Arnold says:

        There is no doubt Page was a plant. Did you see him on Laura Ingram’s show that night. He was laughing, upbeat, and didn’t seem to have a care in the world about anything Mueller was doing. What happened to Manafort and Flynn, didn’t happen to page, that’s enough proof that Carter Page was a plant, at least is for me.

      Likely State Department tracked George Popadopolous travels, alerting the Clinton campaign where to position the Clinton Foundation connected Australian diplomat. They meeting was no coincidence.


  4. Manic Emissary says:

    “The Title 1 surveillance authority gave the “small group” the tools needed to execute #4, which included the 2017 “Russian Narrative” and the appointment of SC Robert Mueller.”

    What was gained from Title 1 that facilitated appointment of SC? Anything that we even know of? Do we know of any actionable intelligence that small-group gained from any FISA whatsoever?

    Also, with Title1 being as significant & arguably necessary as it is/was, why does no one ever discuss the only other reported FISA warrant which was alleged to have been targeted on Manafort? No one interested to see if that one is riddled with lies. Why? It’s just seems taken for granted I guess that Manafort is a slime-ball who is DESERVING of a FISA, but that’s not necessarily so, at all. The burden is still extremely high for Title 1 FISA. Just as with Page, FBI was WELL AWARE of Manafort’s ACTUAL history, what he was and was NOT doing. It’s dubious he could be legally targeted with a Title 1, even his history notwithstanding.


    • the burden should be high to gain Title 1 access…so in light of the flawed
      data used in the application you either have IC deception or corruption within the FISC.


      • Trumpeter says:

        Well, that one is easy to answer. Have you seen any action from Rosemary Collins? I the entire leadership of the FBI counterintelligence apparatus had lied to my court like that, I would stop granting permission slips to spy on Americans until the mess was cleaned up.


  5. Lawrence D'Alonzo says:

    Do not underestimate Carter Page, he trys to come off as a country bumkin but he is not. He worked for the FBI undercover and helped put away a few Russians. Obummer’s FBI & DOJ knew he had contacts with Russians used that to get into the Trump campaign to spy on them (FISA warrant) thru that phony dossier that crooked hillary and her cronies put together.

    Re-listening to the Senate Judiciary Cmte hearing 3 May 2017, several Comey lies stand out, while hearing a few answers (yes, we have no life)
    listening at 2.5x speed for content, not details

    01:06:44 Comey, in response to Sen Orrin Hatch regarding Section 702 FISA abuse “There have been no abuses”

    01:11:53 In response to Sen Patrick Leahy, are you looking into leaks, specifically leaks to Rudy Guiliani and James Kallstrom – “Correct”
    —>>>seems like all ag jeff did was continue comey’s own investigation (lol)

    01:32:17 lindsey graham questioning – entire segment worth a second listen – comey did speak with sally yates re: gen flynn being compromised before yates white house trip.
    —>>>yates definitely member of small group
    01:35:06 – segment on unmasking
    01:36:15 re: unmasking how comey accomplishes unmasking “I ask my intelligence briefer, who works with the PDB staff..and then she goes and asks the owner of the information (CIA, NSA)”
    —>>>definite white house involvement

    02:56:25 second round of grassely questions. grassley is po’d. well worth a second listen.

    02:57:29 grassley asks for answer – in writing – re: fbi policies re: paying outside sources who are also paid by someone else
    —>>>just like grassley wants now re: second “special counsel” or confirmation of IG parallel prosecutor

    02:58:36 grassely – is it vital to know if source has been paid in order to validate their credibilty. comey – yes.

    03:28:18 whitehouse asks about two day delay between flynn interview and 302 being written. comey says he is aware of one or two day delay, and that he (comey) had participated in conversations “about that matter” (gen flynn) before the 302 was written.
    —>>>there is your answer re: time lapses between interviews and 302s being written. they did discuss it

    03:33:10 re: the weiner laptop – comey’s “people” told him there was no time to do laptop email review, therefore no search warrant. tech people apparently circumvented comey small group and came up with workaround, prompting the second comey disclosure and subsequent search warrant.
    —>>>common sense advice – never underestimate the abilities – and ego – of tech people. never say never to tech people, let alone can’t – not in our vocabulary smh

    56:42 “I discussed with…the Senior Leadership Team who, typically, who, I think in all these circumstances, was the Deputy Director, my Chief of Staff, the General Counsel, the Deputy Director’s Chief Counsel, and I think, in a number of circumstances the Number Three in the FBI, and a few of the conversations included the Head of the National Security Branch, so that group of us, that lead the FBI when it comes to National Security. ”

    the number three was most likely he who shall not be named, who also disagreed about comey telling pres trump about dossier, iirc

    seems like the small group was becoming smaller. several left on their own accord, several were fired. the doj group was quickly becoming smaller. ohr was their last best hope. massive ego and potential monetary boost for ohr.imo

    dummies never considered that there are always others, many times much better than they at their business, who were doing the same thing – to them
    they only thought the military/dia old guys were out of business

    pls pardon punctuation, spelling, etc


  7. asdf says:

    Not much in the Steele Dossier required FISA access, just Internet access. And if you look at the media “bombshells” that have propelled Russiagate, it’s all been “FBI is investigating this or that”. So all they needed to do was just investigate things and leak about it. It’s really no more complicated than that.


  8. Billygigs says:

    Looks like you got us in a fine pickle this time Oli.


  9. Chuck Arnold says:

    Here’s what makes this whole collusion thing such an insult to our intelligence. Hillary is the one who made sure Putin got OUR uranium, so why in the heck would Putin want anybody in the White House besides Hillary. Putin owned Hillary after that Uranium One deal was made, and he could have blackmailed her after that anytime he wanted. The only reason we know about the Uranium One deal is because, Trump WON.


    • iRock says:

      Implausibility is immaterial to the purpose of the Russia-Trump narrative which is manipulation of public opinion by the federal government security apparatus to advance the progressive agenda, the Obama governing doctrine. Hillary Clinton was not Obama’s choice but they never expected her to lose.


    • It was Muellers FBI that was investigating the Russian influence peddling to gain access to our uranium and he hid that investigation as well as Campbells testimony from the various agencies involved in approving the sale. This was either incompetence or worse deception. Will we ever see that investigation or will it be a bargaining chip to end the Trump investigation


  10. noswamp says:

    Prescient post by the Chuck Arnold re Uranium One.

    ‘We found about Uranium One because Trump won!’

    This entire situation shows why HRC wasn’t on the campaign trail very often. She was orchestrating this nation wide rigging scam to deprive the American People of any sort of fair & free election. Thank God for Donald Trump. I don’t believe any normal Republican could have possibly beaten such a concerted effort. Just amazing and someday will make an amazing movie and lesson for generations to come.

    “How We almost lost America” a true story

    Re Nellie Ohr’s ham radio: I still don’t understand why she got a ham radio license and what she was using it for and to whom and/or from whom she was sending/getting messages.

    Can someone help me out here? .
