    Republicans have focused on the Ohrs’ link to the dossier and Steele.

    In a memo dated Feb. 2, 2018, House Intelligence Republicans, led by then-Chairman Devin Nunes, asserted the FBI filed to disclose in their FISA applications Ohr’s wife, Nellie, worked for Fusion GPS. They also noted in the so-called Nunes memo that the FISA applications do not reveal Steele’s anti-Trump bias. Ohr claimed Steele told him during a meeting Sept. 23, 2016, he was “desperate” that Trump not win election.

    Ohr testified he had shared details of his contacts with Steele with the FBI prior to the election.


    In addition to the meeting in early August 2016, Ohr met in late September 2016 or early the next month with Page, FBI counterintelligence deputy chief Peter Strzok, and Justice Department officials Bruce Swartz, Zainab Ahmad and Andrew Weissmann. Ahmad and Weissmann are currently working on the special counsel’s investigation.

    The FBI obtained its first FISA against Page on Oct. 21, 2016, weeks after that meeting.

    Ohr’s testimony conflicts with House Intelligence Democrats’ claim in a memo released Feb. 24, 2018, that served as a rebuttal to the Nunes memo.

    That document sought to defend the FBI’s handling of the Steele dossier and its applications for the first FISA warrant.

    Democrats asserted Ohr did not meet with the FBI until after the 2016 election and thus had no opportunity to tell the FBI his wife worked for Fusion GPS. He was also unable to relay that Steele had communicated anti-Trump bias to him.

    “[Republicans] mischaracterize Bruce Ohr’s role, overstates the significance of his interactions with Steele, and misleads about the timeframe of Ohr’s communication with the FBI,” the so-called Schiff memo reads.

    Democrats claimed only in “late November 2016” Ohr informed the FBI of “his prior professional relationship with Steele and information that Steele shared with him.”

    “This occurred weeks after the election and more than a month after the Court approved the initial FISA application,” reads the memo, which included the emphasis on “after.”

    “The Majority’s reference to Bruce Ohr is misleading,” Democrats asserted.

    The revelations in Ohr’s testimony create a bit of a dilemma for Schiff, who is chairman of the House Intelligence panel.

    In a Feb. 6, 2018, interview with The Atlantic, Schiff remarked on “how flawed the Nunes memo is.”

    "The Department of Defense on Friday identified three of the four Americans killed after a suicide bomber triggered a fiery explosion Wednesday at a market in northern Syria....U.S. service members were killed during an explosion while conducting a routine patrol in Syria today

    Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jonathan R. Farmer, 37, of Boynton Beach, Florida; Navy Chief Cryptologic Technician Shannon M. Kent, 35, of upstate New York; and DOD civilian Scott A. Wirtz of St. Louis, Missouri "

    Think about that...
    A CWO (commissioned by the POTUS, appointed by Sec of Army), a Navy cryptologist, and a DOD "civilian"....that make sense to anyone in terms of a "routine patrol"?

    This is similar to Benghazi.
