Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) walked onto the House floor on Friday and shocked the Russiagate conspirators to the core. Collins published the entire, unredacted testimony of the Bruce Ohr testimony from August of 2018. This was the first time that any public or private official has released “classified” material that is pro-Trump in nature.
The biggest shocker was that Ohr’s testimony exonerates President Trump of any wrongdoing, which is why the corrupt Obama holdovers in the Department of Justice have been so reluctant to turn anything over to Congress.
Collins posted the 268-page transcript of DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s testimony on his website as a PDF and entered the link into the Congressional Record – and there’s not a damn thing anyone in the Deep State can do about it now.
The Daily Caller posted a link to the transcript on Friday and Sean Hannity spent 8 minutes bumbling through speculation of what the transcript has in it – but Hannity and his staff had clearly not had time to read or digest the transcript. Other than that, no one has mentioned this legitimate “bombshell” yet.
As of this writing, Drudge hasn’t linked to the transcript and not even Breitbart News has mentioned it.
I read the whole thing over the weekend. Here are the key takeaways from Bruce Ohr’s closed-door testimony…
Democrats Know Russiagate is All B.S.
Ohr testified at a closed-door joint hearing conducted by the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees last year. Out of the 30+ Democrats on those two committees at the time of the hearing, zero showed up. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) sent a couple of lawyer’s to eat up the minority’s time on the clock by asking Bruce Ohr how many years he’d worked at the Justice Department and would he like a fluffy pillow? Since it was a private hearing and they never expected the public to see a transcript, none of the Democrats who are eager to prove the Russia collusion conspiracy even bothered to show up.
Bruce Ohr is a Genuinely Stupid Person
There’s an unintentionally hilarious exchange on Page 21 of the transcript:
Bruce Ohr: “I think any attempt by a foreign power to gain influence over a presidential campaign would be troubling.”
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC): “But that does not include [Christopher] Steele relying on Russians to provide dirt on Trump.”
Bruce Ohr: “I’m sorry, I don’t ever understand the question.”
It goes right over Bruce Ohr’s head. Trey Gowdy did everything except hold up a diagrammed chart labeled “Foreign British Foreigner Chris Steele Colludes with Foreign Russian Foreigners to Influence Election”… and Bruce Ohr still doesn’t get it.
Ohr literally doesn’t understand that Hillary Clinton hiring a foreign British spy to talk to foreign Russian spies… is an attempt by foreign powers to influence the election.
The Deep State Wanted a Special Prosecutor Months before Mueller was Appointed
Ohr testified that British spy Christopher Steele contacted him on March 15, 2017. Steele was very concerned that the Special Counsel’s team was about to inadvertently reveal the identity of one of his spy contacts in the Russiagate conspiracy.
Looming doofus James Comey wasn’t fired until May 9, 2017. Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel on May 16, 2017.
Why was Christopher Steele in a lather about a Special Counsel two months before Mueller had even been appointed?
Theory: Steele accidentally leaked part of the plan to Bruce Ohr before he was supposed to.
Ohr was a Minor Bit Player in the Attempted Coup
After reading the transcript, it’s clear that Bruce Ohr was a small cog in a wider conspiracy (assuming he’s telling the truth, which he seems to have done). Over a six-month period, Ohr was called in for 12 separate meetings with the FBI. This happened every time that Steele or Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS contacted him with information. During that entire six-month period, Ohr never mentioned his involvement in the Russia collusion gig to his boss at the time, Sally Yates.
Yates, you’ll remember, was fired after 15 minutes on the job as Acting Attorney General when she proclaimed she wasn’t going to enforce President Trump’s immigration policies. Ohr testified that he never told Yates about his actions because he felt it was not something his superior needed to be bothered with. As far as Ohr knew, Sally Yates didn’t know about the Trump-Russia investigation at all…
But Sally Yates signed off on two of the FISA warrants after Bruce Ohr delivered Glenn Simpson’s potty dossier to the FBI.
In other words, the coup was multi-layered within the Department of Justice and the FBI. Bruce Ohr didn’t have the full picture because he was basically a DOJ go-fer between Steele, Fusion GPS and the FBI. The higher-ups in the conspiracy (Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Sally Yates, Obama) knew the full picture and filtered “intelligence” to the FBI through lower-level know-nothing conspirators like Bruce Ohr.
Glenn Simpson Likely Lied to Congress
Glenn Simpson is the head of Fusion GPS, the firm that employed Christopher Steele and which was hired by Hillary Clinton to make up the Russian potty dossier. When Simpson testified to the Senate, he claimed that he only contacted the FBI after the 2016 election. He was just a concerned citizen who had stumbled upon the Russian potty dossier – and thought that everyone should know!
Bruce Ohr testified to the joint committee that Glenn Simpson handed him a thumb drive with the Russian potty dossier before the election. Ohr couldn’t remember if it was September or October of 2016, but it was definitely before the election. It looks an awful lot like Glenn Simpson lied to the Senate.
What was Trump’s former weasel attorney going to prison for, again? Oh, right: Perjuring himself before Congress. That would definitely be something for the new Attorney General to look into.
Three Cheers for Rep. Doug Collins!
I’ve been saying all along that sunlight will be the best disinfectant for the treasonous coup attempt against President Trump. As predicted from day one, the entire Russian collusion conspiracy theory was concocted by the Clinton campaign and federal employees in the Deep State to nullify the 2016 election. Congressman Doug Collins is the first Representative to have the guts to release a small snippet of the Russiagate documents to the public.
Collins is fed up and says that if the DOJ doesn’t get some “giddyup” in their step when it comes to releasing further documents to the public, he’s just going to release them himself.
I can’t wait. And when he does release more documents, we’ll let you know about it right here.
