Demoted DOJ Official Ohr Failed To Disclose Wife’s Fusion GPS Income

Demoted Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr failed to disclose income his wife was receiving from Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired former British spy Christopher Steele to dig up dirt on President Trump.

By not revealing the source of his wife’s income, Ohr could face criminal charges.

The Daily Caller reports:

Bruce Ohr, the Department of Justice official who brought opposition research on President Donald Trump to the FBI, did not disclose that Fusion GPS, which performed that research at the Democratic National Committee’s behest, was paying his wife, and did not obtain a conflict of interest waiver from his superiors at the Justice Department, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

According to the exclusive Daily Caller story, Ohr disclosed his wife was an “independent contractor,” but he did not disclose the nature of the firm’s work where his wife worked.

The goal of the Department of Justice disclosure document is to identify possible conflicts of interest within the department.

Ohr is one of the government officals being investigated by Congress.
