Recently, newly reported emails revealed that long after the FBI “suspended and then terminated” former British spy and Trump dossier author Christopher Steele as a source, Bruce Ohr a high-ranking Justice Department official in the Obama administration continued to maintain extensive contact with him.
Congressional committees want to question Ohr over this, but the Justice Department has rebuffed those requests.
But now, Rep. Trey Gowdy is losing patience. In an interview on Fox News, Rep. Gowdy said that Republicans in the House were likely to issue a subpoena for Ohr if the DOJ continued to drag its feet.
The interview comes amid news that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican, is preparing subpoenas for many of the Steele dossier principals, including Ohr.
“Chairman Goodlatte is a patient man, but we have run out of patience,” Gowdy said.
“(The Department of Justice) either needs to set this for a date-certain, or there will be a subpoena issued.”
Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, also said that texts between Ohr and Steele were “not new to me because I’m also on the House Intelligence Committee.”
“I may have been the first member of Congress who actually read these messages,” Gowdy said. “And that would have been in the fall of 2017. They were troubling then. They’re troubling now, which is why Chairman Goodlatte and I so much want to talk to Bruce Ohr.”
“I mean, think about Chris Steele, who has been dismissed from the FBI because he cannot follow their rules and regulations, and he’s communicating with someone in the Department of Justice who — by the way, Shannon — is not involved in this investigation. He’s a … narcotics prosecutor.”
“So, of course we want to talk to Bruce Ohr,” he continued.
Trey Gowdy stands up for what’s right and goes after what’s wrong! He is one of the few who can bring back justice to our country!
This is so simple to figure out, the DOJ and the FBI are stonewalling because they figure after the midterm elections hopefully the Democrats will take back the house and stop these investigations in which case we will never know what happened and their illegal activities will be kept a secret forever.
It is also very simple, the DOJ, FBI work for the President. He could simply declassify all pertinent documents and instruct the DOJ & FBI to comply with the Congressional request. And if not then they are replaced. But, I think the timing is the President’s ace in the hole. The declassified docs blow the whole conspiracy wide open for all to see. To have the greatest and most effective impact it must be done at the right time. Be patient and trust the President!
