Rep Jordan: “Three Key Facts” From Ohr’s Testimony that Disprove Schiff Memo
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of of the House Oversight Committee joined Fox New’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday and discussed the “three key facts” from DOJ official Bruce Ohr’s testimony to Congress that “disprove” Rep. Adam Schiff’s memo.
“Adam Schiff did his memo one year ago,” he reminded Bartiromo. “And remember his memo was to try to undermine what Devin Nunes and his memo had to say. In Schiff’s memo…he says the Republicans ‘mischaracterize’ the influence of Bruce Ohr on the whole process and talk about a misleading timeline relative to Mr. Ohr,” the Congressman said.
Jordan stated the “three key facts” Ohr shared in his August 28, 2018 Congressional deposition that contradict Schiff’s memo were:
- “He said first of all Fusion was connected to the Clinton Campaign, Fusion GPS that put together the dossier.”
- “He said my wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS.”
- “And the person Fusion hired, Christopher Steele, has deep bias against the president. So much so that Christopher Steele told Bruce Ohr himself…that Christopher Steele was “desperate” to stop Trump.”
Schiff’s memo, Jordan reminds us, specifically states that Bruce Ohr only communicated dossier-related information with the FBI after the 2016 election and after the October 21 FISA application was delivered to the FISA Court.
“That is not accurate based on Bruce Ohr’s testimony to us in his deposition,” Jordan said.
“The most important fact, Maria, is that he communicated those key pieces of information to the FBI and DOJ prior to the election, more importantly prior to when the FBI and Department of Justice went to the FISA court to get the warrant to spy on Trump’s campaign. That is huge.”
