Were Fusion GPS' Payments to Bruce Ohr's Wife Really an Attempt to Pay a Government Employee for Government Action

Good question from Luke Rozier at the Daily Caller News Foundation.


Under a contract from the Clinton campaign, the Fusion GPS research firm was paying the wife of a senior Department of Justice official as part of its efforts to gather opposition research on Trump, and the same official then brought that research to the FBI.

Knowledge of the relationship has raised questions about the extent to which the firm may have paid for heightened access to the criminal justice system, and whether they would have hired Nellie Ohr absent her spousal connection to the DoJ.

...

Bruce Ohr was deputy associate attorney general until December. House investigators determined that he met personally with Glenn Simpson, Fusion GPS' founder.

The FBI has limited resources to deal with a firehose of information, so people seeking the FBI's attention could potentially benefit from greasing the wheels in order to get info to the front of the queue and to a high level.

"The money sweetened the pot for the Ohrs, and it certainly made it easier for Fusion to get the dossier to be used before the court if they made that payment to Bruce Ohr's wife," former judge and Texas GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

"Fusion had to have known that because of the relationship between Bruce Ohr and his wife, they were bringing Fusion, the DOJ and the DNC together under one roof to work for the same goal, which was to stop Donald Trump from becoming president," he said.

Ohrís wife, Nellie, is a Russia expert, but it is not known what her specific contribution to the dossier was.

"The financial arrangement between Mrs. Ohr and Fusion GPS gives the appearance of government-for-hire," said Tom Anderson, an ethics expert at the conservative-leaning watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center. It "appears to be a sophisticated scheme to get access to the highest levels of our government... ensuring the use of government resources in an attempt to influence an election."

It bears remembering that the Obama Administration engaged in a fury of unmasking activity during the election activity, getting the names of US citizens caught up in alleged surveillance of foreign targets.

Could this have been done as part of a private-government, how do you say, fusion operation of sorts?

103 well even curiouser is the satsuma mandarin orange which is a hybrid of california oranges and japanese mandarin oranges from trees planted by chinese immigrant labor in the nineteenth century which goes by the slang term sumo orange.




the process for crossbreeding them is something like making a turducken and is an ancient chinese secret called the calgon method.

The latter-day postWWII seasons were HORRIBLE. It was all about the moral equivalence between the USSR and the West in the Cold War. In most episodes, the villain ended up being the Americans, not the Russians.

The show had always flirted with leftism, but it swung far-left in the new seasons, and thus became a garbage-show on the "Ignore" list."

124 "Under a contract from the Clinton campaign, the Fusion GPS research firm was paying the wife of a senior Department of Justice official as part of its efforts to gather opposition research on Trump, and the same official then brought that research to the FBI."

Everything underlined could be considered buffers. IOW the Clintons paid "the FBI" via intermediaries to do their dirty work. Clinton did not run the levers of government as a candidate, but she knew the players and the levers. She, apparently, paid the FBI to spy and campaign for her like mafioso.

That's not to say bad actors weren't motivated on their own to act on her behalf; but direct quid pro quo sure doesn't hurt. Pay buffers money and they'll see things are done.

135 I love the sub-thread about citrus. Very AOSHQ.


On somebody's twatters I saw a short quote that is just breath-taking. Some idiot named Wittes at Brookings wrote that the GOP is a threat to rule of law in the US.


Courts legislate and usurp executive power - brazenly, comically. States and cities and previous federal chiefs ignore immigration law, resulting in massive economic and cultural damage, deaths, mayhem, public health problems. Intel and law enforcement engage in Third World political shenanigans to affect elections. The Dems fight voter ID, and any semblance of election integrity. They also fight any investigation of massive criminality by intel and law enforcement - or serving cabinet officials - even when evidence of same is public, and plentiful.


But the GOP is a threat to the rule of law.


Except insofar as they participate in or tolerate the crap noted above (and they do), WTF? There are reasonable, intelligent people left in the US. But in any public policy context they are swamped by stupid, arrogant, clueless, corrupt lightweights. Can't even imagine what Beltway think tank taffy yanking sessions must be like, by now.

Also in the olden times, tangerines were called tangerines. Now they're called clementines. How did this happen?
Posted by: Soothsayer -- Fake Commenter


They're not called clementines. "Clementines" are simply a name for one variety of tangerine, which originated in North Africa, and which is now eaten almost exclusively in Europe and the East Coast of the US. You almost NEVER see a clementine in California, because we grown our own (different variety) tangerines here.

True face:

The actual "official" botanical name for these kind of fruits is "mandarins" or "mandarin oranges." Within that species, there are various sub-types, but the naming has gotten all muddied and messed up over the years. The three main sub-types of mandarin oranges are

1. Tangerines
2. Clementines
3. (very confusingly) mandarins.

Yes, "Mandarins" is the uber-name for the overall species, but also the name of a sub-type of them, the very small easily-peelable kinds sold in Chinatowns. "Clementines" are a veyr sweet but often seedy perfectly oval flattened type discovered by a French priest in North Africa in the 19th century. "Tangerine" is the cathc-all name for all the other types, of which there are dozens. (Tangerines thems;eves also originated in North Africa originally -- the name comes from "Tangiers," and means "fruit exported from Tangiers.) Mandarins overall originated (as the name suggests) back in China.

For one thing, she coached everyone who would potentially be giving testimony, on how to make juvenile-sounding urination noises. They had to get it right-- the reputations of Fusion GPS, the DOJ and the FBI were at stake.

It's good up through the first four or five seasons, which take place DURING WWII. All the seasons that take place AFTER WWII you should avoid.

Be warned that although the acting and sets are excellent, about a third of the shows have crypto-leftist messages, so just have your guard up. It's not that extreme, but you can tell the bias of the show's writers.

Why are oranges so complicated?
Posted by: Soothsayer -- Fake Commenter


Because (BRACE YOURSELVES, EVERYONE) oranges are NOT one of the original citrus fruits! Oranges are a letter-day hybrid, which everyone mistaken thinks are the "basic" citrus fruit.

There are actually only FIVE "original" citruses, from which all others are derived:

Citron
Mandarin
Pomelo
Lemon
Kumquat

A grapefruit is actually a crossbreed between a pomelo and a mandarin. (First-generation crossbreed.)

An orange is actually a crossbreed between a grapefruit and a mandarin. (Second-generation crossbreed.)

Crazy, eh? Very few people know this.

The big mystery in the citrus genetics world is the origins of the lime. No one really knows how they arose. Current theory is that they were a spontaneous "sport" on a wild lemon tree, which humans then propagated to get a new type of citrus.

Posted by: Hands


Nope!

In Szechuan Province, the "citruses" are extremely tiny and basically have no flesh at all. They are literally the size of a marble. Then, when left to dry on the tree, they shrink and harden even further before being harvested. These little BB-size overripe fruits are called in English "Szechuan Peppercorns," even though they're not related to pepper at all, bu are a close relative of the citrus. And despite their small size, each "peppercorn" (actually a desiccated citrus) has all the flavor/zing/intensity of a full-size citrus, all condensed down into a tiny package. They're used as a spice in TRADITIONAL Szechuan cooking before hot peppers were imported. And the sensation you get from Szechuan Peppercorns is like an electric shock on the tongue, followed by a brief numbness, followed by a long-lasting citrus-y zing flavor. Totally amazing if you've had the real stuff (very hard to find i the US). But one it's not is "hot"-- no capsicum in them.

339 Tami and others - correct me here if I'm wrong.


Appears to me, after a quick read of the CTH article, that there is simply an assertion made that Page was an undercover FBI asset in the Buryakov case - based on reasonable analysis. It's not a confirmed fact.


The analysis lays out how an undercover asset helped nab a Russian agent. The description of the asset is consistent with Page - but is it him? Nobody else in NYC who worked in the energy industry consulting biz? Or do we know the asset wasn't posing, and in fact was not in the biz (Page was/is).


As I said, reasonable assertion. But not established fact. One would think that perhaps the HPSCI or other Hill committee would have already made specific inquiries with the FBI about this matter. If they haven't - I'd imagine it's happening today.


IF the assertion is correct - as JackStraw said - whoa.


If this turns out to be the case, we'd all better exercise restraint - it appears there was no real lower limit on the crudeness, clumsiness, and audacity of the FBI/DOJ in constructing their ridiculous smear/frame-up of Trump.

345 If this turns out to be the case, we'd all better exercise restraint - it appears there was no real lower limit on the crudeness, clumsiness, and audacity of the FBI/DOJ in constructing their ridiculous smear/frame-up of Trump.

347 Jumping in late, didn't get the full drift of the Carter Page stuff, but:

1) He worked as an undercover agent for the FBI,
2) Resulted in charges against a couple Russians,
3) FBI used his "contacts" with the Russians as evidence to spy on Trump team.
4) FBI lets Page slide, goes after Trump claiming Page was person of interest.

Is that it? Evil.

348 Conservative Treehouse is good at putting lists together ... I hope their sources are good, and that they are not TOO reliant on "Trump is Always Right" and could never fail.

I haven't been there lately, but the "Trump is playing 24D level chess and you MUST kiss his (and sundance's) boots ... is a problem.

Maintain your own personal integrity .. never join a cult that says "just trust US, we are ALWAYS right, and if you don't agree we BAN you".

That was the order that made CTH a failure, even if he puts good lists together from sources he may or may not identify.

Maybe he has upgraded, and learned ... but I do not have 100% trust in him or Trump. Prove all things, hold fast to that which is good. Or as Reagan said, Trust but Verify.

Can't we all just get along? without having perfect gurus? Think for yourself. He is one source, document everything, I won't go there because I want to maintain (or attempt to) a non-Trump-cult attitude, since they will have blind spots. Trump is awesome, he didn't get there by himself, he didn't start the fire. He recognized it.

But I want all to be in the fight, so "party on Garth".

349 Aha - thanks JackStraw.


So Page confirmed he was the contact referred to but not ID'd by name in court papers describing a contact (who, for those who haven't read the CTH item, gave the Russki agent some energy industry information in binders that contained hidden recording devices .....).


Now of course there's nothing impossible about Page being an informant in 2013, and a foreign agent in 2016. It's just that there would seem to be no evidence of that (a small matter).

Could he be an informant in April of 2016 and a Foreign agent in Sept. of 2016? If that's the case, the FBI SUCKS at recruiting informants.

353 Appears to me, after a quick read of the CTH article, that there is simply an assertion made that Page was an undercover FBI asset ...

The analysis lays out how an undercover asset helped nab a Russian agent. The description of the asset is consistent with Page - but is it him? ...

Posted by: rhomboid at February 05, 2018 07:42 PM (QDnY+)


I also came to the same conclusion. However, I have read elsewhere that Carter Page apparently went to the FBI at some time after some sort of incident while he was in Russia.

I suspect that the FBI parlayed that previous suspicious contact (self-reported by Page!) as evidence that he was this Ruskie Super-Secret Agent when presenting the affidavit to the FISC judge in order to sweeten the pot. Last I heard, Carter Page hasn't been charged with anything criminal and he has making public statements that he his planning to sue for violations of his civil rights.

Another suspicion I have, actually having presented affidavits for search warrants, is that the FISC judge was pre-disposed to overlook the fact that he had been presented unverified, pretextual bullshit.

you are fine Tami ... I'm going back over a year where Sundance kicked out many people (some I think were very correct while Sundance was wrong) and kept only one post, stating Trump was way above us all and we should be sycophants, and he Sundance was close to that level.

Sundance chose to repost only that ... it revealed a lot. So not everyone that stayed is like that, BUT that was the attitude of the time. (a friend from a different realm stayed there, but that's another story)

Yeah, it is just a website not a cult ... BUT the allegiances are a real thing, and such demands have certain effects. The moron horde has its own thang ... not enforced, no such issue requirements. That makes it normal ...

Thanks for that. I feel so wrong about asking about the sites' validity. I certainly wasn't questioning Tami.

I just needed to know how to read it. B/c warnings and all that. So now I know why I had been cautioned previously.

356 Didn't Formerly Great Britain keep wartime rationing into the 1950's?



Yes, it was a big deal when candy stores reopened after sugar rations were lifted in 1953.

--On this very date in 1953, as if you thought no one would notice--

pretty sure that meets the definition of shithole.
--Old Boer guy in Zulu: "You couldn't be more wrong."

British rationing was continued as a no-shit humanitarian move to keep beat-to-shit Europe from completely starving all the way to death. The Brits who remember are pretty damned proud of having done it, too. But who cares.

357 I've been thinking about what Fusion GPS means and came up with it last week......It's means
"Fusion Government Private Sector"

Don't know if that's old news or a common guess but I've named a few companies and that's my guess!

358 We'll never know, because of something called apousal immunity.

Awfully convenient huh?

That also works For the White House connection to Fusion GPS. Obama Senior Adviser Shailagh Murray is MARRIED to Fusion GPS employee, Neil King.

361 Yes the unmasking was, of course, part and parcel of the disinformation campaign. And I'm really surprised that the linkage hasn't been made more clear by Nunez and company, let alone the reliably conservative talk radio hosts (at least so far as I've heard).

Once they had an illegal surveillance op up, looking for any and all "dirt" on "Trump Associates" (TM) or anything they could "link to Russia".

The unmasking/leaks were simply the early return on investment by allowing Obama-Clinton Administration officials an ongoing mechanism to get surveillance intel to leakers, who could then leak smears out in advance of the election, with just enough a grain of truth to them to give them traction in the media.

And, given the broad unmasking, the trail back to the individual leakers would be covered over (so they thought).

I actually think that, given their hubris over the election, this was the main purpose of the entire surveillance /disinformation op. The "insurance policy" was a late afterthought, after Hillz' public seizure, and the unanticipated discovery of Lynch-Clinton tarmac shenanigans, etc that made the once laughable prospect of DJT actually winning the election become a remote and terrifying possibility to the apparat.

At this point I think they just used the existing infrastructure of the Trump surveillance/unmask/leak disinformation op to gear up for Op 2.0, which was the "insurance policy" special counsel investigation counsel alluded to in the Strzok messages.

362 Multiply the amount Mrs.Ohr was paid by the number of people registered to vote nationwide.
And then tack on an extra thousand a month for every month the Media has implied that people who voted from Trump are traitors and Russian Bots.
