Nellie Ohr, wife of twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr is refusing to appear for a Congressional deposition that was supposed to be conducted in a closed-door session Friday.
Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller:
Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is refusing to appear before Congress for a closed-door hearing that was scheduled to take place this Friday, sources tell The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The sources also said that former FBI general counsel James Baker is not cooperating with the committees’ request for an interview.Top articles1/5READ MOREHERE ARE THE IMAGES: French Politician Marine Le Pen Ordered Psychiatric Evaluation for Posting ISIS Images
“The Committee continues to seek the testimony of Nellie Ohr and Jim Baker and will compel their testimony if necessary,” an aide to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees sought to question Nellie Ohr after her husband Bruce Ohr gave an explosive testimony to Congress.
The former Associate Deputy Attorney General told Congress the FBI knew his wife, Nellie Ohr worked for oppo research firm Fusion GPS yet failed to disclose that information to the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court].
Nellie Ohr was paid multiple large payments by Fusion GPS, the oppo research firm that commissioned dossier author Christopher Steele.
It is time for the House Judiciary Committee to issue Nellie Ohr a subpoena.
Investigative reporter Sara Carter also said Thursday morning “Also hearing from a source former FBI SA Peter Strzok ( who was fired) is refusing to come back for additional testimony without a subpoena. I say subpoena Strzok, former Gen Counsel James Baker. Oh, and Nellie Ohr too. It May have something to do with all these texts were seeing”
Update: GOPers on House Judiciary Committee say they will compel testimony of Fusion GPS’s Nellie Ohr and former FBI General Counsel Jim Baker if necessary.
