The Top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee has had enough, and released the investigation interview with Justice Department FBI Figure Bruce Ohr on Friday, defying the department, which had tried to slow walk the release.
Collins released it to the Congressional Record, giving him protections against retaliation for the move. In the release, Ohr admits that his wife who worked for Fusion GPS gave the FBI the opposition research.
“Mr. Speaker, last Congress, the Judiciary Committee interviewed multiple DOJ and FBI officials about their actions regarding the 2016 elections,” Collins said.
“People anticipate the Mueller report soon. Will he find any so-called ‘collusion’? Or was the only ‘collusion’ among agency personnel who hated the president and started this investigation?” he added. “Our interview transcripts were pertinent to a congressional investigation, but the 115th Congress ended, the investigation was closed, and copies were shared with certain members of Congress.”
Collins said he made the decision because the Democrats have made clear they are intent on probing President Trump, and he wanted to make clear “what actually happened” in the 2016.
Bruce Ohr as many of you know, and we’ve reported for quite some time was a conduit of information between former British Spy Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS who created the fake Russian dossier.
The FBI’s investigation that is still ongoing into President Trump has been based on a false and fake premise this entire time.
“I intend to make other transcripts public soon,” Collins said on the House floor. “I’m willing to consider any reasonable redactions DOJ makes in a timely manner, but won’t allow these transcripts to remain shrouded in secrecy.”
Kudos to Congressman Collins, we’re starting to find out the very few people who truly represent the American people, and he is one of them. You can read the full testimony of Bruce Ohr here on Congressman Doug Collins page.
