Ohr told Congress that the FBI was aware that his wife worked for Fusion GPS, but failed to disclose that to FISC He also claims the FBI was aware of dossier author's bias, but failed to disclose that to the secret court as well

Senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr testified Tuesday that prior to obtaining the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant on short-term Trump campaign volunteer, Carter Page, the FBI was aware that former British spy and anti-Trump dossier author, Christopher Steele was biased against then-candidate Trump. He also stated that the FBI knew that his wife, Nellie Ohr was working for Fusion GPS, the now-embattled research firm which was hired by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC to compile the dossier with Steele. This, according to Congressional sources with direct knowledge of Ohrís closed-door deposition.

Ohr stated during his hours-long testimony that the FBI failed to disclose this pertinent information to the nationís secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) when it sought an application to spy on Page. The FBI also failed to disclose that when it sought the application, it was using senior Justice Department official, Bruce Ohr as a cut-out for a source the bureau had terminated.

Ohr had also communicated with senior members of the FBI, including former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI attorney Lisa Page, and former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, at the bureau but stated that his superiors at the Justice Department were not aware that he was being used as a source for the FBIís investigation into the Trump campaign, according to sources who spoke to SaraACarter.com.

ďWhen it comes to the dossier, the hours of testimony from Bruce Ohr only further confirm how wrong the FBI operated,Ē Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told this news outlet. Jordan would not give details on the testimony but stated that Ohrís deposition was a necessary part of the investigation and getting to the truth.
