  • Former associate deputy U.S. attorney general Bruce Ohr arrives to testify behind closed doors before the House Judiciary and

"What's happened is the highest levels of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice conspired and colluded to bring down a president". Ohr is a Department of Justice official who has been at the agency for nearly three decades.

Former associate deputy U.S. attorney general Bruce Ohr enters an elevator after testifying behind closed doors before the House Judiciary and House Oversight and Government Reform Committees on his alleged contacts with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson and former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled a "dossier" of allegations linking Donald Trump to Russian Federation, on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., August 28, 2018.

In their letter, Cummings and Nadler, who are the ranking members of the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees, write that Republicans on their committees were reading from the documents during Ohr's interview and using them to create a "highly misleading narrative with factually inaccurate interpretation and conjecture".

He argued she was paid a lot of money to gather opposition research on his campaign while she worked for Fusion GPS -the firm behind the discredited Steele dossier.

The FBI's investigation was already under way by the time it received Steele's dossier.

Goodlatte was not present for the interview with Ohr, which was held Aug. 28 during the House's August recess.

In July, Palin came out publicly to say she had been duped by Baron Cohen, but her interview never aired. Sacha Baron Cohen: you'll laugh, you'll cringe, you'll wonder why justice is so rarely served.

One of the meetings he recounted was a Washington breakfast attended by Steele, a Steele associate and Ohr.

Ohr told lawmakers he could not vouch for the accuracy of Steele's information but has said he considered him a reliable FBI informant who delivered credible and actionable intelligence, including his investigation into corruption at Federation Internationale de Football Association, soccer's global governing body.

Ohr's communications with Steele were blessed by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, though he did not inform his supervisor, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, about the meetings, according to the source with knowledge of Ohr's testimony.

He also provided new details about the department's move to reassign him once his Steele ties were brought to light. Hayden cautiously said it's still a "single data point" and "raw information" that would be used as a "departure point" for an investigation, not the endpoint.

"Absolutely", Hayden said. "And I don't know Mr. Ohr, but in anticipation of our conversation tonight, I kind of sent a note out to folks I know who might know him, and the description I got back from him was competent, thorough, and honest".

Ohr was told Sessions and Rosenstein did not want him in the post because it involved White House meetings, the sources told the AP.
