DOJ Official Bruce Ohr is Not Fired, and That’s Okay – For Now….

There are several dozen critical issues that stem from revelations about the DOJ and FBI conduct in/around the Carter Page FISA application (2017) and Steele Dossier writ large; but DOJ official Bruce Ohr still being employed isn’t one of them, and here’s why.

Bruce Ohr on right

What exactly would Bruce Ohr be held accountable for?

What Mr. Ohr did wrong was back-channel information from dossier author Christopher Steele into the FBI; made worse because this is after Chris Steele was persona non grata; and done by Ohr without telling his bosses at Main Justice.  Obviously, not good.

However, considering the time-frames of the FD-302 reports written by Ohr’s handler FBI agent Joseph Pientka, Bruce Ohr was channeling information into the Crossfire Hurricane team in 2017.  That same FBI team became the Mueller investigation FBI team, and from the 302 notes we know Ohr was channeling information from Christopher Steele into the Mueller team after the administrations’ changed.   Again, not good, but…

Bruce Ohr wasn’t the only non FBI person back-channeling information from corrupt source Christopher Steele into the FBI and Mueller team in 2017.

SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner was doing exactly the same thing.

Senator Warner was having secret contacts, “would rather not have a paper trail”, with Steele through liaison Adam Waldman, and then relaying information to Robert Mueller.

 

.

So how is the DOJ going to hold Bruce Ohr accountable for back-channeling unverified information from corrupted source Christopher Steele to the FBI (Mueller), when SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner was doing exactly the same thing?

The impeachment coup was a plan, an insurance policy of sorts; a coordinated effort between corrupt politicians and hold-over allies in the executive; however, because she didn’t want to participate in this – Senator Dianne Feinstein abdicated her vice-chair position to Senator Mark Warner.  [Background Here]

This is the pre-cursor to utilizing Robert Mueller.  A plan that was developed soon after the 2016 election.  The appointment of a special counsel was always the way they were going to hand-off and continue the investigation into Trump; but they needed a reason for it.

The continued exploitation of the Steele Dossier was critical; Chris Steele was the wildcard… they needed Chris Steele to be solid.  And the continued manipulation of the media was also critical; thus they needed Fusion-GPS to continue.  [Dan Jones paid both]

Through the spring of 2017, while Mark Warner was communicating with Adam Waldman and Dan Jones as a conduit to Chris Steele, the FBI/DOJ team was communicating through Bruce Ohr to Chris Steele (and by extension to Nellie Ohr and Fusion GPS).

Part of Warner’s role was to weaponize the Legislative branch to advance the ‘Muh Russia conspiracy’, a fundamental necessity if a special counsel was going to have justification.

Quite a navigation issue for U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr.

Again, no rush on this one…  Until someone works out the final decisions on how to handle Warner, if at all, there’s no consistent way to tackle Bruce Ohr for the Steele contacts.

The ultimate disposition of Senator Warner could likely be an aspect of a multitude of unprecedented issues that no-one would think about.  Vice-Chair Warner is a member of the intelligence oversight ‘gang-of-eight‘… so that makes things even more complicated.

That politically complex dynamic is likely why the former DOJ knuckeheads, together with Robert Mueller, decided to let SSCI intelligence leaker James Wolfe get away with little accountability.

Now AG Barr has to re-navigate these issues… John Durham is investigating… Meanwhile Bruce Ohr opens mail, or something.

“Complicate business folks, complicated business.”

          The CIA. Obama just just their puppet.

          WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — A new bombshell report written by Jerome Corsi suggests that President Barack H. Obama’s passport records were likely ‘sanitized’ by the acting Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan, leading up to the 2008 presidential election after Brennan achieved the status of Director of the National Counterterrorism Center under the Bush Administration.

          That’s right, this sleazeball may be the one almost solely responsible for allowing an illegal foreign entity, i.e. Barry Soetoro, A.K.A. Barack Hessian Obama, to ‘salt,’ sprinkle, his way into the White House under CIA direction, thus reacquiring full control of the helm of the CIA ran Bush Administration. You see, it was nothing more than a passing of the baton–it’s so simple.

          Remember, they went after Stone because of Corsi. I bet Wikileaks has the info to prove it.

      Haha! In that op-ed, Holder opens up with a claim that he’s reluctant to publicly criticize his successors. But if you search on “eric holder jeff sessions” you’ll see that Holder repeatedly publicly criticized Jeff Sessions, calling him a “hypocrite”, saying Sessions was “dumb on crime”, etc. When Andy McCabe was fired, Holder said this:

      “If you’re the attorney general of the United States, you run the damn Justice Department, you know?” Holder said. “And you’ve got to have the guts to look at the president every now and again and say no.” (Politico article)

      In April, Holder-the-a-hole publicly criticized Barr for saying the FBI had spied on the Trump campaign. Holder said “it’s investigating”. (waaaaah) Holder also publicly criticized Barr for his handling of the Mueller report.

      Holder is just like Comey, a traitor acting holier than thou. Does he think we’re all stupid? Or is he just playing to his idiot base? Because those people ARE stupid, I know because I used to be a Dem.

          Yes, Brennan was the believable link to authority, whose suggestions could be translated to action, who could arrange collaboration with foreign powers (which recently prompted British Intelligence’s surprised comment that Barr’s investigation was working against his own intelligence agencies). Brennan needed foot soldiers in the FBI and DoJ to execute the deeds, but the provision of initial work product was his baby.

          Start with FISA, get through the falsified applications and prosecute the malefactors fully, and the trail will lead to Brennan.

        They were removed from the Mueller team to avoid the APPEARANCE of bias, not because there was direct evidence that they took any particular actions as a result of bias. There is a big difference, well, at least as far as Horowitz is concerned.

        I think the lack of ideological diversity in the FBI, the DOJ, the entire government employment system, and the general population of the DC area is the entire ballgame. It is the root of all of these problems. Any effort to fight corruption or drain the swamp or whatever is going to prove Sisyphean so long as the HQs are all located in DC. The HQs need to be moved to middle America. Move the FBI to Fort Worth and DOJ to Dallas. They would be close enough to meet if necessary (but not to have incestuous affairs and conspiracies), close to a hub airport, and most importantly out of DC. Then if they reach out to the general population to hire, say, a file clerk, there will at least be a possibility that the person hired will not be a partisan democrat. That is not possible in DC. In DC everyone from the janitor to the highest ranked civil servant employee are all in ideological lockstep.

        No evidence of bias in opening the investigation. That happened before the Steele dossier came into view (or so goes the official narrative).
        There is all sorts of “opening the investigation was justified” narrative. That short circuits the relevant inquiry, which is a process inquiry. “Predicate” is not a one-shot, done item. Every escalation in force has to be justified.
        Was the predicate for opening the investigation sufficient to appoint a SC?
        What was learned after the investigation was opened? That the claims were BOGUS. Learning the claims are bogus can’t stand as justification to escalate the investigation. It is cause to drop it.
        And failure to drop it is not a “series of errors in filing FISA appliacitons.” It has to be deliberate malfeasance.
        Howorwitz frames his inquiry in a way to avoid analysis of the process. He takes each step in isolation, as though the preceeding steps don’t even exist.
        FBI is a railroad operation. It is dishonest at bottom.

        Horowitz chooses his words very carefully. He never said that strzok and Pages boas didn’t inform their decisions. He said that the decisions made re Clinton exoneration and re opening crossfire hurricane were made by other people. Not strzok and page.
        Their bias was moot.

            Every effort will be made to shut the senate trial down by dismissing the charges or simply just short cutting everything by the fastest means possible. All of course to avoid the skeletons coming out of the closet. And preventing Trumps counsel bringing all the witnesses to the stage, that is Ukrainian witnesses, Bidens, Clintons. Can you imagine the fiasco?

            Do you think McConnell/Graham are capable of making up ridiculous ruthless unfair rules to conduct the senate trial in Trumps favor? No. They want it to go nowhere and PDJT will not have his day in court.

            So of course the sword of Damocles will be held over the Presidents head for the next 4 years.

      If there is a trial in the Senate, Trump’s first motion would be to have Roberts removed as the presiding judge, since the FISA court serves under Roberts and has been proven to have authorized bogus warrants against Trump. Thus tainted, Roberts cannot serve on any body judging Trump.

      This maneuver allows Trump to spotlight the full conspiracy, which the impeachment crowd hopes will be ignored during the more limited Ukraine matter that their articles have been shaped around.

      Trump has time on his side. The Swamp and Deep State do not, and they are terrified of exposure. Trump owns the downside, including impeachment. They cannot… or else.

      I’m starting to think this vote fails in the House. Trump has no motivation to go along with a quick acquittal vote, as the Swamp and Deep State desires. He has the hammer on them, and avoiding an impeachment trial seems to be their only out now.

    I have taken in the events of the past couple of days and have been left with a somewhat different perspective.
    The behavior of the FBI documented in the IG report does not necessarily reflect political bias; rather the behavior documented by the IG appears consistent with sedition.
    Tell me, if a geopolitical adversary gained operational control of the 7’th floor of the Hoover building would it look any different than what was described in the IG report? Launch an investigation to spy on the President of the United States (collect intel) while simultaneously destroy the reputation of the FBI and wound, perhaps mortally, the credibility of the DOJ.
    If the upper levels of the US bureaucracy were infiltrated by individuals compromised by a foreign adversary– could we catch them?– if they were in the FBI or DOJ would they even be arrested?
    After processing the events of the past couple of days the questions I have are different?
    Who was Rod Rosenstein working for?
    Was the DOJ and FBI colluding with the Russians?
    Are there forensic accountants scouring the FBI and DOJ employees implicated in the IG report?

    The IG reports documents some pretty willful and malicious behavior– We, as a nation, need to know the “WHY” and political bias would seem to be the least of our worries.

      So, let’s ask Inspector General Horowtiz:

      Inspector, what evidence have you uncovered that would lead you to believe that all these illegal FBI activities surrounding FISA abuse were anything other than an integral part of a coordinated Coup?

      It seems you have placed your hand on an elephant’s tail and have concluded that you are holding a snake.

      It seems obvious, even to the casual observer, that the Intelligence Community engaged in activities that were consistent with the furtherance of a plan to overthrow of the President of the United States. Let’s take bias off the table. You seem unable to concede that it existed in spades across every exposed text message that has been released. Do you believe that if there was no bias, there was no crime? That if there was no bias there was no intention? That if there was no bias there was no motivating force? That if there was no bias there was no state of mind consistent with the commission of sedition?

      I think, then, that bias must be the wrong word, especially since you keep denying its existence. Consider rabid sports fans who are never described as biased, but are instead imbued with extreme loyalty to their team. What if perverted team loyalty leads to a win at all costs mentality? What if it leads to rampant cheating, lying, hatred and even referee payoffs? Even James Comey prefers to call it loyalty. A higher loyalty. Isn’t loyalty imbued with good connotations, good intentions? NOT if it’s perverted. Perverted loyalty goes way beyond bias, does it not?

      You keep talking about mistakes. Isn’t that completely misleading? I mean, do you really expect the American people to believe that this is about an unfortunate series of mistakes and NOT a deliberate, multi-year attempt to undermine, and then remove, the President of the United States? If you continue to mischaracterize the willful well-planned, coordinated activities of our Intelligence community as unbiased mistakes, how am I to believe that you’ve really inspected anything?

But on closer examination of his words my impression was changed. I believe he’s saying politics wasn’t the ONLY bias. This fits more easily over the backdrop scenarios CTH has been posting.

      I believe the motivation for some was political. For others the motivation was financial. For some it was to cover for prior criminal conduct of ones self or colleagues. And for some their purpose is to destroy our Nation.

They knew what it takes to jump from the dysfunctional FBI field offices to the DeepState enforcement headquarters.

      My recollection is Ohr was paid a $30k bonus during the time he was Steele’s conduit to FIB, while reporting to Agent Pientka.

      He was then demoted twice, from Deputy AG, then demoted from head of OCEDEF, Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force.

      I forget his current job. He said what it was during his congressional testimony. It should be counting paper clips.

    The intelligence community, of which the FBI is part, often issues investigation reports without concluding a crime or even a mistake was committed.
    So just report on what Warner did, along with Schiff and all the others. report the connections among the lawfar, Congress, FBI, CIA, State, foreign intelligence, and so on. No need to draw any conclusions, just report what they did. Like news, except without the spin.
    What is the “tread carefully” issue when no allegations are leveled? Let the opposition parties have at it, armed with findings of fact.
    Use the “17 intelligence agencies agree” canard.

      Problem is, there is no opposition party. The Uniparty wants Trump gone. This battle can only be fought if Trump carries the standard, because the Uniparty and their media poodles will drown out Jordan, Nunes et al. McConnell will be the high priest drowning these witches.

      Trump can’t kneejerk here, but he has to promulgate the details of this conspiracy, or it won’t be heard. Barr won’t turn completely on his buddies, even if he does a bit of housekeeping.

      Actually, there was a creepy moment in one of the last of Trump’s rally’s before the election in 2016 that I have been trying to find. I watched all of them through his whole campaign and this one (I think it was in Florida) put a chill down my back.

      Trump said that when elected he would ‘drain the swamp because he knows everything; everything they are doing’ because “he used to be one of them” and he ‘loves America and wants to save it.’

      Looking at what he is doing puts a big perspective on this statement. As a billionaire that ‘they all went to for money’ was he privy to the plans? Did someone tell him what the plans would be? Was it Hillary or Bill? Remember, they chummed together as long as Trump was donating to the cause.

      Like I say….creepy. It would also explain the hate and desperation to keep him out of the whitehouse. He may be the traitor in their eyes as he knew too much and he turned on them…..

      I’m getting the feeling that this was how DC has operated for a very very long time and the only reason they’re not getting away with it this time is because we have the internet and some extremely hard-working and talented researchers/analyzers like Sundance to glean info from a variety of sources (some of them quite obscure) and piece everything together for our benefit. Without the internet we’d be almost completely ignorant. The good old days for traitors are coming to an end, or at least it’s a lot harder for them to do their traitor-ing. 🙂

      I’m still amazed that when I read the IG’s FISA report I found I already knew almost everything that was in there. Thank you, Sundance.

    Ohr was removed from his senior ADAG post in late 2017. In ‘18 he was removed from the Organized Crime TF and assigned as a counselor to Internal Affairs. The recent move sounds a lot like “assigned to Human Resources” which means a holding pen with no real responsibilities until the decide what to do with him. (In DoD they reassign you as “special assistant to the Commander XYZ” when you’ve been fired for something like malfeasance or sexual misconduct.)

    IG basically refers Ohr for additional personnel actions. So OPR probably writes him up for engaging in activities that, while not illegal, circumvented the chain of command and exacerbated a highly sensitive problem that brought great shame on the FBI. They’ll also cite his obvious conflicts of interest. Although, again, not illegal on the face of it, the connection of his politically-hired wife to the investigation also added to the impression that the FBI was engaged in political activities. OPR recommends termination, no mention of Steele directly, only that Ohr knowingly continued working with sources which the FBI had already OFFICIALLY broken ties with.

    They’ll keep it really narrow in focus. We won’t see the OPR letter for a very long time, and if Durham decides to indict Ohr, it’s a moot point.

        I didn’t either, and I remember reading elsewhere, probably Lee Smith’s book, that B. Ohr had a separate connection to Steele.

        They’ll probably skin it like they did with McCabe’s wife. Technically, he got the “all clear” from the Ethics people that he did not have a conflict of interest with his wife getting those payments from Terry MacAuliffe. But in subsequent reports, the FBI did criticize him for walking that thin line, if memory serves.

        For Ohr, the different threads from him to his wife to Steele to others involved is very sketchy at best, and good cause for the FBI OPR to say, “OK, technically not illegal, but unprofessional, suspicious, and you should have steered well clear of any perception of a conflict.”

        That’s also why they have continued to demote and marginalize him…but haven’t fired him. Not yet. I think if Durham comes back with indictments that include Ohr, FBI will have what it needs to pull the trigger and can him.

        Here’s the thing about McCabe that I remembered. The IG basically said that McCabe was technically good to go…but was also critical of McCabe for not completely honoring his recusals.

        Compare and contrast with Ohr and you get to the same basic place with the important distinction that Ohr never recused himself.

        The inspector general said investigators found “several instances” in which McCabe did not fully comply with his recusals, and they suggested that he should have sought guidance from ethics officials before, on March 7, 2015, he and his wife met with McAuliffe at the governors mansion before a political event. At the time, McCabe was running the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

        McCabe’s noncompliance with his recusals seemed to be limited mostly to participating in discussions about cases, and the evidence for some incidents was mixed.

        Overall, though, the IG said that McCabe was (from an FBI Ethics point of view) in the clear. Which, in a similar sense, is why they haven’t terminated Ohr and have simply transferred him to a nothing job in IA.

    The plethora of corrupt & “elite” politicians who have been devising all kinds of schemes (for decades) to divert taxpayer dollars (in the form of aid, or stupid projects like climate change) into their personal coffers/foundations are about to be exposed.

    They are in panic mode and are doing everything possible to stop this law enforcement train that is coming towards them at a thousand miles an hour.

    The worst abuser of this, of course, was the Clinton Foundation. When will the IRS finally make a solid case and go after it? The factual, documented, written evidence of fraud, articulated by CHARLES ORTEL is overwhelming.
