Kirsters Baish| On Wednesday, Republican North Carolina Representative Mark Meadows referred the wife of Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, to the Department of Justice to be criminally investigated. Nellie Ohr, a former contractor for Fusion GPS, worked with the firm during the 2016 presidential election.

Via The Daily Caller:

In a letter to Attorney General William Barr first reported by The Hill, Meadows alleged that Ohr made false statements to Congress on Oct. 19 about contacts she had with Justice Department officials regarding ongoing investigations, as well as about her research into alleged Russian organized crime figures.

Ohr worked as a contractor for Fusion GPS, the firm behind the Steele dossier, from late 2015 through September 2016. Her husband is Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who served as dossier author Christopher Steele’s back channel to the FBI.

To be clear, Representative Meadows did not accuse Ohr of lying about her relationship with Steele or her work for the firm. Rather, Meadows noted Mrs. Ohr’s claim during an interview that she “would not have any knowledge of what [was] going on in an ongoing investigation” at the Justice Department and that she did not have “any knowledge of the Department of Justice’s investigations on Russia.”

She also denied having provided “information from her research into Russian organized crime figures and Donald Trump to anyone outside of Fusion GPS, her husband, or Steele, who was a former MI6 officer,” according to the Daily Caller. 

“However, documents reviewed by our committees raise concerns Ms. Ohr not only had knowledge of an ongoing DOJ investigation, but that she shared information and research on Russian organized crime to assist DOJ, in direct contradiction with her testimony,” stated Meadows.

Meadows pointed to an email from March 23, 2016 in which DOJ official Lisa Holtyn questioned Bruce Ohr whether his wife, Nellie, would be able and willing to talk to Justice Department officials Ivana Nizich and Joe Wheatley about an ongoing agency investigation.

The Daily Caller explains that “Nellie Ohr agreed to meet with the officials, according to the email thread. Ohr also shared research about an alleged Russian mafia boss, Shakro, which Meadows says contradicts her testimony.”

On Tuesday, Meadows alluded that Republicans were getting ready to release criminal referrals for “two of three” of those individuals with connections to Fusion GPS.

“Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, has been accused by Republican lawmakers of lying to Congress about the timing of his contacts with Bruce Ohr. When asked by lawmakers whether he met any FBI or Justice Department officials in 2016, Simpson said that he met Ohr only after the 2016 election. But Ohr said otherwise during testimony before lawmakers on Aug. 28, 2018. He said he and Simpson met on Aug. 22, 2016 in Washington, D.C. to discuss Fusion’s investigation into the Trump campaign,” the Daily Caller reports.
