“The Ohr testimony is also further evidence that the FBI misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in its Page warrant application”


Kimberley Strassel at The Wall Street Journal:

“Mr. Ohr testified that he sat down with dossier author Christopher
Steele on July 30, 2016, and received salacious information the
opposition researcher had compiled on Mr. Trump. Mr. Ohr immediately
took that to the FBI’s then-Deputy Director Andy McCabe and lawyer Lisa
Page. In August he took it to Peter Strzok,  the bureau’s lead
investigator. In the same month, Mr. Ohr believes, he briefed senior
personnel in the Justice Department’s criminal division: Deputy
Assistant Attorney General Bruce Swartz,  lawyer Zainab Ahmad and fraud
unit head Andrew Weissman. The last two now work for special counsel
Robert Mueller.

More important, Mr. Ohr told this team the information came
from the Clinton camp and warned that it was likely biased, certainly
unproven. “When I provided [the Steele information] to the FBI, I tried
to be clear that this is source information,” he testified. ‘I don’t
know how reliable it is. You’re going to have to check it out and be
aware. These guys were hired by somebody relating to—who’s related to
the Clinton campaign, and be aware.’”

There is nothing
to turn from,
or to, no

way other
than forward, such
place as I mark

time. Let me
leave here a
mark, a

way through
her mind.
