The head of opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted in a court filing this week that his firm paid the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help dig up damaging information on then-candidate Donald Trump.

Glenn Simpson, co-founder of Fusion GPS, filed the signed declaration in a D.C. court this week affirming that Nellie Ohr, wife of demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, was contracted by Fusion through the summer and fall of 2016 “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump,” according to the filing. The House Intelligence Committee determined that in November 2016, Simpson met with Bruce Ohr shortly after the election to discuss their findings regarding Russia and Trump. Bruce Ohr lost his senior-level position at the DOJ as associate deputy attorney general after his meetings with Simpson and British spy Christopher Steele, who assembled the Trump-Russia dossier, were discovered.

And why would Fusion GPS hire Nellie Ohr? Aside from the obvious connection to her DOJ husband who was in a position to provide Fusion GPS with information on Trump gathered by US intelligence agencies, Nellie Ohr also represented the CIA’s “Open Source Works” group in a 2010 “expert working group report on international organized crime” along with Bruce Ohr and Glenn Simpson.

Nellie Ohr, the wife of demoted DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, not only worked for Fusion GPS, but has also represented the CIA’s “Open Source Works” group.

In addition to the dossier which served as the basis for the DOJ and FBI to obtain FISA surveillance last year on a Trump campaign advisor, Fusion GPS was also behind the infamous Trump Tower “set up” with a Russian lawyer, and a failed attempt to link Donald Trump to billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Also of note, the Daily Caller reported last month that heavily redacted Fusion GPS bank records reveal DNC law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion a total of $1,024,408 in 2016 for opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump – including the 34-page dossier. And who did Perkins Coie operate on behalf of? Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

So, as part of a million-dollar effort by Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid Fusion GPS, which employed the wife of a senior DOJ official in this endeavor, who represented the CIA’s “Open Source Works” department during an “expert working group.”

A group of House Republicans has been calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate Obama and Clinton-linked controversies, which Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he is considering hours after a Tuesday call by President Trump’s outside counsel Jay Sekulow for a second special counsel to investigate Bruce and Nellie Ohr’s association with Fusion GPS during the summer and fall of 2016.
