If you want “collusion,” let’s take a look at Obama DOJ operative Bruce Ohr who sent the opposition files his wife, Nelie, created to Fusion GPS to help Hillary win in 2016.
Why was a Department of Justice official working to support a partisan political campaign? There’s your collusion.
We now KNOW this is true, and not just Republican finger pointing, because the DOJ has released documents proving it.
“One of the documents is a spreadsheet that identifies 80 individuals with purported links to Donald Trump and Russian businessmen,” Daily Caller noted.
The problem with the facts that support the allegation that Obama and Hillary worked to destroy Trump by illegally using government resources and illegally using intelligence resources to spy on Trump is that this story is so complicated that it can’t be told in simplistic terms so that many voters can easily understand.
This is a perfect example. Bruce Ohr is a DOJ operative. His wife, Nellie Ohr, is a political operative for hire. She worked with Fusion GPS run by Hillary supporter Glenn Simpson . Simpson hired former British spy Christopher Steele to create the fake “dossier.” And Hillary paid for it all.
So many names, so many people with their fingers in the mix. It all makes for a difficult story to get people to grasp.
Here is how Daily Caller explained it:
Nellie Ohr kept tabs on dozens of Trump associates and Russian businessmen as part of her work for Fusion GPS, according to government documents released Wednesday.
Ohr’s husband, Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, provided the documents to the FBI for its investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.
One of the documents is an Excel spreadsheet that tracked 80 different individuals with links to President Donald Trump and Tevfik Arif, a Kazakh-born real estate developer who has done business in the past with the Trump Organization. Another is a dossier on Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman who was convicted for financial crimes related to his work in Ukraine.
So, what we have here is a DOJ official being an errand boy for the candidate for a major party and illegally passing secret info to the FBI to urge the FBI to launch an illegal investigation using false information as “proof” that an investigation is warranted.
If you want “collusion,” THIS is it. Only it isn’t Trump “colluding.” It is the Democrats breaking laws to win an election.
