A top member of President Trump’s legal team is demanding a second special counsel to investigate conflicts of interests in the Russia probe.
Attorney Jay Sekulow made the request after reports that Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s wife worked for the company responsible for the anti-Trump dossier.
Members of the House Intelligence Committee discovered Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS last summer and fall.
Investigators say Nellie Ohr may have arranged these meetings at Fusion GPS to coordinate work on the controversial document.
Her husband has since been demoted for concealing his meetings with people behind the dossier.
Bruce was the associate deputy attorney general of the department under the Obama administration.
“It’s hard to believe that all of these people, that’s a very small circle that were looking into the Trump Dossier overall,” said Devin Nunes, chairman for the House Intelligence Committee. “I hate to use the word ‘corrupt’ but they’s become at least so dirty that – who’s watching the watchmen? Who’s investigating these people? There is no-one.”
These findings provide further evidence the Russian collusion narrative was a political attack by the Democrat machine politics in D.C. against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump.
