Dots Connecting Quickly: Bruce Ohr Worked With Andrew Weissmann, While Nellie Ohr Worked For Fusion GPS in 2015…

Last Sunday Representative Darrell Issa was being interviewed by Maria Bartiromo about the testimony of Bruce Ohr when Issa innocuously said that Nellie Ohr was working for Fusion GPS in 2015.  Previous to that statement by Issa the timeline for Nellie Ohr working with Fusion GPS began in April of 2016 (simultaneous to Fusion beginning the contract work for the Clinton Campaign and sub-contracting of Chris Steele).

If the 2015 date was correct, this was a big deal; a VERY BIG deal.  Well, today amid other revelations within an excellent report by Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller, the 2015 date is confirmed:

[…] Republicans pressed Ohr about how his wife, a Russia expert named Nellie Ohr, came to work for Fusion GPS.

Ohr testified that Fusion approached his wife for a job and that she began working for the research firm in late 2015. California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa said Ohr testified that his wife was paid $44,000 by Fusion GPS. As TheDCNF has reported, Ohr did not disclose his wife’s Fusion income on his annual ethics disclosure form.

Perkins Coie, the law firm for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, paid Fusion GPS more than $1 million for the Trump-Russia project. Fusion paid Steele nearly $170,000 for his work. (read more)

If Nellie Ohr began working for FusionGPS in “late 2015”, an entire set of prior suspicions now gains a lot more traction.  We have long suspected that Fusion-GPS was one of the contractors with access to the FBI/NSA database.  The contractors were conducting political opposition research by exploiting the FISA 702(16)(17) process which would be available for counterintelligence purposes; hence the DOJ-National Security Division.

(link to pdf)

From November 1, 2015, to May 1st, 2016, thousands of search queries were conducted with a “non-compliance rate of 85%”.  That means the “contractors” were massively abusing their access to the database; and a full 85% of their activity was demonstrably unlawful.

It is highly likely, almost certain, all of this unlawful query activity was political opposition research being conducted by political operatives, agents and DOJ/FBI affiliates within the apparatus.  Fusion GPS seems like an obvious organization who would be participating in that activity.   Adding to this likelihood we now have Nellie Ohr working within this exact timeline.

We have also found significant connections between those contractor database queries and downstream results which appear to show up in the external investigative material presented by Fusion-GPS contractor Christopher Steele, (ie. Cohen in Prague).

Not a single congressional hearing has ever questioned the FISA search issues. Not a single question to a single witness, specifically Comey or Yates, ever asked them about the DOJ-NSD and FBI abuse of the FISA database.

The origin of almost all of the corruption seems to consistently circle back to the abuse of the FBI and NSA database which is very much documented and never subject to being refuted. Yet for some reason I cannot fathom, the historic FISA surveillance/search abuse issue is never brought up by anyone, any investigative authority, in any aspect of this ongoing storyline.

It all starts with abuses of the FISA system for political opposition research; yet we never hear a single voice calling attention to the DOJ-NSD and FBI abuse of this system.

Additionally within the report today from Chuck Ross is this:

[…] Sources familiar with Ohr’s testimony before the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Ohr informed Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page about his interactions with Steele and Simpson. He also informed Justice Department prosecutor Andrew Weissmann about his dossier-related work.

Weissmann is now serving as right-hand man to Robert Mueller at the special counsel’s office.

Ohr testified that he informed his Justice Department peers, but not his superiors, about his contacts with Steele and Simpson. One of the superiors kept out of the loop was former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. Ohr said he was demoted as assistant deputy attorney general in December because he failed to tell Yates and other top officials about his dossier interactions. (more)

Again, this connects a circle of information.  You might remember back in July there was another report of Andrew Weissman working in collaboration with four AP reporters.

The July article surrounded a discovery that Robert Mueller’s lead attorney Andrew Weissmann worked with four AP journalists on both the story of Paul Manafort’s business interests; and, more importantly, and jaw-droppingly, the evidence for Mueller to use against Paul Manafort.

The gist of the story is that Andrew Weissmann was meeting with AP reporters in April of 2017, approximately a month prior to the formal construct of the Robert Mueller investigation. The information from the meeting, which was essentially based on research provided by the “reporters” about Paul Manafort, was then later used in the formation of the underlying evidence against Manafort to gain a search warrant.

We suspect those AP reporters were part of the Fusion GPS network.  To understand the implications we must overlay a set of facts that has perplexed CTH for almost a year.  Back in April 2017 Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, declassified a FISA court ruling that had/has massive potential implications.  The 99-page ruling, written by FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer, outlined structural issues and admissions by the DOJ and FBI about violations of search queries within the NSA and FBI database.

Essentially, the underlying evidence within the Collyer FISA report, outlines how the DOJ National Security Division (John P Carlin), FBI and NSA (Admiral Mike Rogers) informed the court that unauthorized access to the NSA/FBI database had been ongoing for a long period of time.  The “unauthorized access” was primarily driven by contractors who had access to the information database and were using it in 2015 and 2016.  According to the report over 85% of searches conducted were “unauthorized” abuses of the system.  DOJ-NSD head John Carlin resigned in 2016 immediately after informing the court.

Since the discovery of this issue a great deal of disconnected information has followed. Including how FBI Director James Comey allowed his friend Daniel Richman to have  “special access” to this information database.

The term “contractors” is opaque in the ruling, and there are hundreds of redactions protecting the names of the individuals and groups who participated in the unauthorized searches.  However, within the testimony of Fusion-GPS founder Glenn Simpson; and the story of the Steele Dossier and Nellie Ohr; we discover a nexus of information users.

Fusion GPS was/is essentially in the ‘information for hire‘ business, selling to clients for a price and using networks of journalists and former government officials to transmit, share and disseminate information on behalf of their clients.  Essentially, Fusion GPS is an opposition research group with a network of journalists, paid and unpaid, that it uses to frame constructed narratives to the benefit of their clients.  In the spring, summer and fall of 2016, the Hillary Clinton campaign was one such client.

In April 2017, at the time of this meeting with AP reporters, Andrew Weissmann was chief of the Justice Department’s criminal fraud section.  Weissmann joined the special counsel a month later, May 2017.

We already know the FISA searches were essentially political opposition research being conducted by these opaque ‘contractors’.  We know the ideology within the DOJ-NSD and FBI, the generic intent of their motive, from the communication amid the group doing the Clinton and Trump investigations; text messages, memos and emails which have since become public.

A common sense review of all facts outlines a strong likelihood these database searches were ongoing by groups and individuals affiliated with Fusion GPS and other political networks.  It’s a simple process of selling information.

This information pipeline from Fusion to Bruce Ohr to Andrew Weissmann, in combination with the meeting between Weissmann and AP reporters, is essentially another round of same-method of manufacturing evidence; it is a collaborative effort.

In the first example where the Fusion-GPS information circle was exploited, the FBI gained a FISA Title-1 search warrant against Carter Page.   In the second example of an almost identical information flow, the result was Special Counsel Robert Mueller gaining Title-III search warrants against Paul Manafort.

Orbis, Miller and Skripal were all in Salisbury. The D notices (called something else nowadays) seem to apply primarily to no mention of Miller or else but have certainly put the muzzle on our press. This has ensured that there is virtually no reporting of the potential of the link between the Skripal poisoning and eliminating a loose end, known to sell info for money.

So we know Contreras is part of the plot, but what about the other FIS judges? I’m inclined to think that the one I just mentioned is–or at least was–not part of the plot b/c it was he who angrily rejected the first “emergency” FISA application after being called away from his Sunday dinner for an “emergency” hearing. He left the room and phoned other judges and asked them their opinions, then returned to the hearing room (just an office in a building in DC, not a real court room), told the DOJ lawyers that not only was this not an emergency, but that their application was a crock, and angrily threw them out of the courtroom. All of that was in one of Ed Klein’s books.

    To me the illegal “information flow” in the second example giving Mueller search warrants against Manafort makes the search warrants illegal and any evidence obtained inadmissible in a court. But what do I know I’m not an attorney. The Federal Courts seem to me to be in collusion with the FBI/DOJ/IC cabal giving them whatever they ask for. There is no check and certainly no balance in this witch hunt of Mueller’s.

Judge Roberts picks these judges I believe?

        The Congress has bit by bit surrendered its constitutional powers to the Executive and the Judiciary. Separation of Powers is a dead letter. You probably aren’t old enough to remember Watergate, but I am, and I can tell you that men of stature like Sam Ervin and Strom Thurmond and Richard Russell would have gotten whatever they subpoenaed in a New York minute. There would have been no stonewalling those men. But we no longer have such men in Congress, which is why the Legislative branch has lost its power. They still have the purse strings, but it would require backbone to draw them closed and cut off the DOJ’s funding until DOJ complied with Congress’s commands, and the current crop of congress critters–with a few exceptions (a minority, and therefore unable to compel the DOJ to obey)–are spineless. Or worse. Can you seriously imagine Ryan or McConnell cutting off funds to the DOJ until their subpoenas were complied with? THAT is the problem. Evil triumphs when good men do nothing or when a population can no longer produce good men in positions of power. Our elected representatives are milksop weaklings.

    Ask yourselves. If we have an inkling of the real deal, then wouldn’t you think our favorite president knows considerably more than an inkling? We know he was likely briefed IN FULL by Admiral Rogers in November 2016, and he learned plenty more since then, including from Michael Flynn and Mike Pompeo.

    This was such an extensive, coordinated abuse of power by weaponized intelligence agencies used to spy on political opponents during a campaign that it’s difficult to keep track of all the pieces and players. That’s not to say that it’s difficult to understand the evidence of what was done, the difficulty lies in including all the relevant pieces and players when presenting the evidence of what was done. In that regard, I think it’s very important that we not forget the role that “unmasking” played in this effort. The unmasking of names would assist those contractors abusing and illegally searching the NSA and FISA data bases. Clearly, this would be a primary motivation for the extensive unmasking effort that took place during the campaign. If you’re trying to set up “American 1”, you have to unmask “American 1” in the data base to make it easier for the contractors to find him during a search of the data base.

    Big question… I have always wondered why Nellie Ohr was so important for Fusion GPS to hire. Russian fluent, former college prof, former CIA analyst… Now it is clear: if she had access to the 702(17) “about” method, it permitted her to examine raw data, so Russian language voice or text.

    OK. Now where was her computer station?

    At some closet in DOJ Main? In her private office at 1700 Connecticut Avenue, Suite 400?

    My guess is that access to that kind of powerful, secret database is going to be over an highly secure connection direct to the server. So some electrician or “telephone man” in GSA had to run a wire into Fusion GPS’ office.

    Who authorized that GSA construction work? That would be interesting to know.

    Here’s the ultimate conclusion, which God willing will be reached sooner than later: The entire “Russian collusion” imbroglio is the outcome of a hoax, a fraud, promulgated by a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY to protect Hillary Clinton, inoculate her organization, and to subvert Donald Trump both as a candidate and later as President (which brings in into “seditious conspiracy” territory, aka a “silent coup” or in the vernacular “treason”).

    THEREFORE – everything that is a fruit of this criminal conspiracy: The recusal of Jeff Sessions; the Mueller Probe; the malicious prosecution of General Flynn, Papadopolous, and Manafort; is suspect, the fruit of a “poison tree” and must be reversed/stopped/set aside.

    many willing participants.
    The drain is not wide enough and appears
    to be clogged.
    The Abyss is waiting and will welcome them.

  22. The corruption in our DOJ / FBI is amazing. These unelected idiots subverted our Constitution with their seditious acts. Someone must pay the price for their treason. I keep hearing that we must be patient, but I suspect that the elite are just trying to wait us out, that eventually we will move on to other concerns, and the guilty can go back to business as usual. Maybe the Deep State is truly above the law.

    Here’s the James Comey / Sally Yates theme song. Pay attention to the lyrics “…you’ll be the queen of spades and we’ll fight for your like soldiers…” maybe they can get accommodations at a Federal pen with their Queen of Spades Hillary. The pickpocketing during the performance is a nice touch.

    “”The term “contractors” is opaque in the ruling, and there are hundreds of redactions protecting the names of the individuals and groups who participated in the unauthorized searches.””

    After reading the article, this is what should be investigated and subpoenaed. It is often the little things that people screw up on, and thinking I am part of a very large group of people, or anonymous, tends to make people drop their guard and do stupid things.
