Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch is suing the Justice Department for records connecting Bruce and Nellie Ohr to Fusion GPS and the Steele dossier.
Fox News reports:
Suit - Monday - Justice - Department - Failure
The suit was filed Monday, following the Justice Department’s failure to respond to Judicial Watch’s December 2017 Freedom of Information Act requests about the couple and their connection to research firm Fusion GPS.
Judicial Watch’s first lawsuit, related to their FOIA request from Dec. 7, 2017, seeks records of contact or communications between Ohr, Steele, and Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, along with any other Fusion GPS employees; calendar entries, and travel requests for Ohr.
Suit - Group - Dec - FOIA - Request
The second suit is connected to the group’s Dec. 12, 2017 FOIA request, seeking emails, text messages and chats between Justice Department officials in the Attorney General’s office and Nellie Ohr.
Bruce Ohr, who has since been demoted from a top post at the Justice Department, was a close contact for British ex-intelligence agent Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier on behalf of Fusion GPS.
Thursday - Judicial - Watch - Investigator - Chris
On Thursday, Judicial Watch’s chief investigator Chris Farrell explained to Bill O’Reilly why the watchdog sued, arguing it was important to learn more about how Bruce Ohr funneled the Steele dossier to the Justice Department.
FARRELL: “Ohr was the conduit for all information from Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele into the Justice Department. At the time he was the number four ranking guy. His wife Nellie was working at Fusion GPS. He had met Steele personally. They knew each other, they were in contact. So, this guy acts as the funnel to this whole phony dossier, all the information pertaining to it to get into the Justice Department. Meanwhile, he’s part of the circle of the Andy McCabe-Strzok-Page group. So, they are synchronizing their efforts, so we want to know what was communicated and who the interaction was with.”
