Bruce Ohr CONFIRMED in his interview today: after the FBI terminated their relationship with Chris Steele for leaking to the media, the FBI privately reengaged with him and continued receiving his info. This was after suggesting to the American public they had cut Steele off.

On Tuesday, former associate deputy attorney general and employee of the Department of Justice Bruce Ohr gave a closed-door testimony to House investigators that revealed even more corruption in the ranks of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in their behavior and actions regarding the surveillance of then-candidate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) tweeted out on Tuesday, “Bruce Ohr CONFIRMED in his interview today: after the FBI terminated their relationship with Chris Steele for leaking to the media, the FBI privately reengaged with him and continued receiving his info. This was after suggesting to the American public they had cut Steele off.”

Ohr, who was the former director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces, also appeared to drop another bombshell.

Breitbart reports:

In another stunning admission, Ohr reportedly told the committee that the FBI lacked confidence in the Steele dossier  — yet still used the largely unconfirmed document to obtain permission from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

“Not only did the FBI know the dossier was unverified, but they also knew there were real credibility issues where it would never end up in a courtroom,” Meadows said as quoted by the Washington Times.

Further, Ohr reportedly told lawmakers that the FBI was aware of Steele’s bias against then-candidate Trump before applying for a warrant to surveil Page. “When it comes to the dossier, the hours of testimony from Bruce Ohr only further confirm how wrong the FBI operated,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told investigative journalist Sara Carter.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), another Republican lawmaker who attended Tuesday’s interview, said that, thus far, Ohr’s interview and others have shown an “excessive reliance” on the dossier. “And if the dossier truly is the rotten foundation upon which the Mueller church is built, I think that’s an important revelation,” he said.

We already knew the FBI leaked stories to the media in order to present it as evidence for FISA warrants due to the testimony last week of FBI intelligence analyst Jonathan Moffa.
