Ohr and Sussmann were reportedly responsible for providing Obama DOJ officials with the junk Russian dossier created by Democrat operatives.
The Obama administration, DOJ and FBI used the junk research to spy on candidate Trump and later on the Trump administration.
This is the most corrupt political scandal in US history.
The fake news mainstream media refuses to report on this scandal to protect Democrats.
The Hill reported:
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) requested Friday that the FBI release materials related to the bureau’s interactions with Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr and former DOJ lawyer Michael Sussmann.
Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, sent a letter to FBI director Christopher Wray asking him to share information on the FBI’s interactions with both individuals.
In his letter, Johnson cites “public reports,” including a report from The Hill, that former FBI General Counsel James Baker met with Sussmann, now an attorney with Perkins Coie. Perkins Coie retained research firm Fusion GPS in 2016 to research allegations that President Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
“Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele — author of the Steele dossier — and Mr. Sussmann allegedly provided the FBI with information ‘related to Russian interference in the election, hacking and possible Trump connections,’” the letter reads.
“According to separate reporting, the FBI met at least 12 times with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who ‘began feeding information to the FBI from dossier author Christopher Steele in late 2016.’ To better understand the FBI’s interactions with these two individuals, I request that you produce all communications and documents, including the FD-302s, memorializing the FBI’s communications with Michael Sussmann and Bruce Ohr,” Johnson added.
