Nellie Ohr Claims ‘Spousal Privilege’ To Avoid Questions…Even Though Husband COVERED UP Her Fusion GPS Work
Nellie Ohr is now claiming marital privilege to avoid answering questions about some of her activities with Fusion GPS, the Hillary Clinton-funded opposition research firm responsible for the debunked Christopher Steele dossier that triggered fraudulent FISA warrants to spy on President Donald Trump and his team.
Ohr’s husband Bruce Ohr was a Department of Justice official — and remains a Department of Justice official — despite his wife Nellie’s concerted agitation against President Trump.
Fusion GPS contractor Nellie Ohr invokes spousal privilege in closed door interview to not answer some lawmaker questions related to her husband, Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, says Dem Rep. Krishnamoorthi.

Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr concealed his wife Nellie Ohr’s work for Fusion GPS on official documents, exposing yet another facet of the “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” plot to target President Donald Trump and to cover up the conspirators’ tracks.
Bruce Ohr merely listed his wife Nellie as an “independent contractor” on his 278e financial disclosure forms instead of acknowledging that she worked for Fusion GPS, the anti-Trump political reconnaissance firm that sent spy Natalia Veselnitskaya into Trump Tower to justify FISA warrants on President Trump’s team.
The Wall Street Journal’s Kimberly Strassel makes the stunning revelation:
9) "(Bruce Ohr’s 278e financial disclosure form lists her as an “independent contractor.”)" This bland statement (i am assuming purposely) omits the key point: That this description masked where she really worked–Fusion–which Ohr should have disclosed, but didn't.

Obviously, this is something that House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Goodlatte should grill Bruce Ohr about when Ohr comes before his committee in a few days. But there is so much more for Goodlatte to ask about, especially as it applies to the way Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr shared access to sensitive government information that only Bruce Ohr had official access to as a top-level government official.
Bruce Ohr passed the Christopher Steele dossier to the FBI, according to Rep. Jim Jordan. Ohr also used information from Steele after Steele was officially deemed an “unsuitable” confidential human source.
Goodlatte is angling to go after the entire Fusion GPS operation, which will clearly show that there’s no way Trump could have obstructed justice in a case where there is no justice — only vengeful government agents trying to play politics by bending the law against a populist candidate.
Goodlatte has a surefire question to spark criminal charges: He must ask about how Bruce Ohr had a DOJ password to the FBI Citizen Log personal identifying information storage system on citizens, while his wife Nellie Ohr was employed by Fusion GPS and privy to his password to the database, which was breached toward the end of the Obama administration and implanted with Russian code.
The Hill reports: “Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) is preparing subpoenas for Justice Department (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr, his wife Nellie Ohr and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, according to two congressional sources familiar with the matter. The committee will also go after other current and former FBI and DOJ officials including Jim Baker, Sally Moyer, Jonathan Moffa and George Toscas, the sources said.”
Tore Lindeman reported for Big League Politics in her piece “Hurricane Electric Exposed”:
The FBI’s “Citizen Log” program, formerly known as LifeLog, is at the center of #SpyGate and provided material for the Christopher Steele dossier. Fusion GPS had access to this government database through its operative Nellie Ohr’s husband Bruce Ohr at the Justice Department.
The #SpyGate conspirators used the code name “Crossfire Hurricane” because they were all using a contractor called Hurricane Electric, which has access to all of the Barack Obama and James Comey FBI surveillance programs on private American citizens.
It is confirmed that Russians hacked the entire database when an Obama administration French contractor snuck Russian code into all of the FBI surveillance programs.
“The access to this server is a free pass to pry into anyone’s life. This is were we store, collate and even plant information on someone,” a high-level federal government security insider tells Big League Politics.
“The thing about planting information is, we never use information that is fake, we use somebody else’s information and merge it onto our target’s profile. For example, if I want to take you out or silence you, I will link some other person’s profile that may be dubious or even criminal, link it up to yours where you might have a gap or where I can easily replace it because maybe you were really private during that period and then we have you right where we want you. This is what happened to President Trump” said our source…
