REPORT: Clinton-Funded Research Possibly Sent to DOJ Via “Back-Door” Channel

A series of emails between Nellie and Bruce Ohr reveal the possibility that Clinton-funded opposition research was being funneled to the Justice Department during the 2016 election through a “back-door marital channel,” according to John Solomon of the Hill.

The emails were released through a Freedom of Information Act request to Judicial Watch and are now raising concerns among some lawmakers.

According to the report, the newly released emails reveal Ohr sent her DOJ official husband open source intelligence. In some instances, she also sent it to at least three other DOJ officials: Lisa Holtyn, Ivana Nizich and Joseph Wheatley.

In one example, Ohr emailed her husband on July 6, 2016 and wrote, “Hi Honey, if you ever get a moment you might find the penultimate article interesting — especially the summary in the final paragraph.”

The paragraph she flagged suggested that Trump was Putin’s puppet: “If Putin wanted to concoct the ideal candidate to service his purposes, his laboratory creation would look like Donald Trump.”

Solomon writes, “Such overt political content flowing into the email accounts of a DOJ charged with the nonpartisan mission of prosecuting crimes is jarring enough. It raises additional questions about potential conflicts of interest when it is being injected by a spouse working as a Democratic contractor trying to defeat Trump, and she is forwarding her own research to his department and co-workers.”

Other information Ohr sent her husband include articles and academic research that Solomon says “would later surface as evidence of alleged collusion between Trump and Russia.”

This includes:

  • then-Russian ambassador to Washington Sergey Kislyak attended an April 2016 foreign policy speech by Trump. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions eventually was forced to recuse himself from the Russia investigation as attorney general in part because he met Kislyak at that speech;
  • then-Trump campaign adviser Carter Page gave a July 2016 speech in Moscow. Nellie Ohr bolded a passage in the article noting Page’s company “continues to work with Russian investments” and included someone tied to the Russian energy giant GazProm.

The newest emails have Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) questioning the accuracy of Ohr’s October 2018 congressional testimony.

“If Ms. Ohr used her time at the opposition research firm to place information directly in the hands of investigators, it would be a severe conflict of interest,” Meadows told Solomon. “Contrary to Ms. Ohr’s congressional testimony, it appears that she funneled research gathered during her time at Fusion GPS directly to the DOJ. A draft of a criminal referral for giving false testimony to Congress is currently being reviewed.”

Ukrainian Officials: DOJ Hasn’t Acted on Our Evidence of Dems’ Wrongdoing

The Hill’s John Solomon is reporting that Ukrainian law enforcement officials claim their attempts to get the Justice Department to act on evidence of wrongdoing by Democrats have been thwarted. The evidence–they say–involves 2016 election meddling and obstruction of justice.

Kostiantyn Kulyk, deputy head of the Prosecutor General’s International Legal Cooperation Department told Solomon that he and other officials have been unable to secure U.S. visas to share the information they have with American officials.

“We were supposed to share this information during a working trip to the United States,” Kulyk said. “However, the (U.S.) ambassador blocked us from obtaining a visa. She didn’t explicitly deny our visa, but also didn’t give it to us.”

The evidence the Ukrainians have includes:

  • Sworn statements from two Ukrainian officials admitting that their agency tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton. The effort included leaking an alleged ledger showing payments to then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort;
  • Contacts between Democratic figures in Washington and Ukrainian officials that involved passing along dirt on Donald Trump;
  • Financial records showing a Ukrainian natural gas company routed more than $3 million to American accounts tied to Hunter Biden, younger son of then-Vice President Joe Biden, who managed U.S.-Ukrainian relations for the Obama administration. Biden’s son served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings;
  • Records that Vice President Biden pressured Ukrainian officials in March 2016 to fire the prosecutor who oversaw an investigation of Burisma Holdings and who planned to interview Hunter Biden about the financial transfers;
  • Correspondence showing members of the State Department and U.S. embassy in Kiev interfered or applied pressure in criminal cases on Ukrainian soil;
  • Disbursements of as much as $7 billion in Ukrainian funds that prosecutors believe may have been misappropriated or taken out of the country, including to the United States.

As Mueller’s Probe Dies – The REAL Collusion Scandal Explodes

Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel is now over, and at long last, we discovered (to the dismay of MSNBC and CNN) that there was no collusion after all! One listener joked that the Counsel could’ve saved themselves $30 million if they had just listened to the Dan Bongino podcast.

It’ll be amusing to see how the true believers react to their world for the past two years collapsing in. Inevitably some faction of the collusion crazies will claim that Trump sabotaged the report, and I’ve even seen one commentator speculate that “Vladimir Putin got to Mueller.” No word then on why Putin did nothing to prevent a few dozen Russians from being indicted by Mueller (for charges unconnected to the Trump campaign).

There was no Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – but there was plenty of collusion between Ukraine and the Clinton campaign. We extensively documented those connections in our book Spygate, and just as the books’ central thesis of no collusion between Trump and Russia was just vindicated, as were our theories about Ukraninan collusion. According to an explosive new article by John Solomon:

Ukraine’s top prosecutor Yurii Lutsenko divulged in an interview that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.

On August 19, 2016, Manafort resigned from the Trump campaign after The New York Times reported that Ukraine’s Anti-Corruption Bureau found a black ledger in a bank vault abandoned by Viktor Yanukovych (the 4th President of Ukraine), showing $12 million in cash transactions related to Manafort. The ledger was exposed by Serhiy Leshchenko, a former Ukrainian parliamentarian, and former investigative journalist.

Days after publishing the ledger, Leshchenko told the Financial Times that “A Trump presidency would change the pro-Ukrainian agenda in American foreign policy. For me, it was important to show not only the corruption aspect but that he is [a] pro-Russian candidate who can break the geopolitical balance in the world.” It’s clear what his motivation was – to collude in an effort to take Trump down.

Yurii Lutsenko’s probe was prompted by a Ukrainian parliamentarian’s release of a tape recording purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign.

The parliamentarian also secured a court ruling that the leak amounted to “an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign,” Lutsenko told me. Lutsenko said the tape recording is a serious enough allegation to warrant opening a probe, and one of his concerns is that the Ukrainian law enforcement agency involved had frequent contact with the Obama administration’s U.S. Embassy in Kiev at the time.  

It’s still unclear how Manafort’s black ledger was leaked to America media. The FBI had previously investigated Manafort for his Ukranian business activities but abandoned that in 2014 due to a lack of evidence. The black ledger added a spark to those ambers.. Solomon continues, noting that:

We know the FBI set up shop in the U.S. embassy in Kiev to assist its Ukraine–Manafort inquiry — a common practice on foreign-based probes — while using British spy Christopher Steele as an informant at the start of its Russia probe. And we know Clinton’s campaign was using a law firm to pay an opposition research firm for Steele’s work in an effort to stop Trump from winning the presidency, at the same time Steele was aiding the FBI.

In an interview with Solomon, Lutsenko said that the U.S. Embassy (in Ukraine) interfered in his ability to prosecute corruption cases. He claimed that the U.S. ambassador gave him a list of names of defendants he wasn’t allowed to pursue. He showed Soloman a letter from the embassy that partially supported his story, showing a U.S. official asking him to stand down (view here).

Meanwhile, in America, the DNC’s Alexandra Chalupa became the driving force in pushing the collusion narrative as soon as Manafort joined the Trump campaign. The DNC paid her $412,000 from 2004 to June 2016 for consulting work, after which she left to research Manafort full time. Chalupa had Manafort in her crosshairs since 2014 when his boss, the aforementioned Yanukovych (who discovered the black ledger), had protesters gunned down in the streets during the Ukrainian Revolution. In an email in May 2016, Chapula spoke about meeting with Michael Isikoff (a Steele dossier source) and connecting him to Ukrainians – and the two met at the Ukrainian embassy soon after.

If there’s a case for collusion to be made, it’s not with Russia.

 

Bombshell Report: Evidence Emerges of Ukrainian Plot to Sway 2016 Election for Clinton

New evidence is emerging that suggests Ukraine attempted to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of Hillary Clinton, according to John Solomon of The Hill.

In an interview yesterday, Ukraine’s top prosecutor revealed that he opened an investigation “into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in an effort to sway the election in favor of Hillary Clinton.”

The leak of the files to American media outlets prompted Manafort to resign from the Trump campaign and “gave rise to one of the key allegations in the Russia collusion probe that has dogged Trump for the last two and a half years,” writes Solomon.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the real collusion scandal in the 2016 election involving Ukraine**

Ukraine Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko’s investigation was sparked by the release of a tape recording “purporting to quote a top law enforcement official as saying his agency leaked the Manafort financial records to help Clinton’s campaign.”

Solomon writes that a Ukraine parliamentarian “also secured a court ruling that the leak amounted to ‘an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign’…Lutsenko said the tape recording is a serious enough allegation to warrant opening a probe, and one of his concerns is that the Ukrainian law enforcement agency involved had frequent contact with the Obama administration’s U.S. Embassy in Kiev at the time.”

Solomon: Bruce Ohr’s Testimony Reveals Existence of Yet Another Russia Dossier

Testimony from DOJ official Bruce Ohr that has been kept secret from the public reveals that he delivered yet another Russia dossier to the FBI which was compiled by his wife, Nellie.

According to The Hill’s John Solomon, Ohr admitted to handing the FBI a computer drive full of information from his wife who worked for Fusion GPS–the opposition research firm hired by the Clinton campaign and DNC to create the original anti-Trump dossier.

Solomon writes:

The way Ohr described it, his wife’s research was like an additional dossier assembled from Fusion GPS research to augment what [Christopher] Steele was separately providing the FBI.

“She (Nellie Ohr) provided me with a memory stick that included research she had done for Fusion GPS on various Russian figures,” Ohr told congressional investigators.

“And the reason she provided that information to me is, my understanding was, it related to some of the same — it related to the FBI’s Russia investigation. And she gave me that stick to give to the FBI.”
