Attorney Gregg Jarrett Blasts DOJ Official Bruce Ohr ‘Anyone Who Knowingly Lies to the Government – It’s One Year Behind Bars’ (VIDEO)
President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton appeared on Fox News to speak with attorney Gregg Jarrett who filled in for Lou Dobbs Thursday evening.
Gregg Jarrett brought up DOJ official Bruce Ohr who was recently caught hiding his wife’s Fusion GPS payments from ethics officials.
Jarrett says anyone who knowingly and willfully lies to the government, it’s one year behind bars.
“18 USC 1001, if you knowingly and willfully lie to the government it’s one year behind bars,” Jarrett began.
Tom Fitton pointed out Paul Manafort is facing similar charges for failing to file a FARA form.
Demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr was being fed information from his wife, Nellie Ohr who was employed by Fusion GPS. Bruce Ohr then took that ‘oppo research’ given to him from his wife and gave it to the FBI.
Bruce Ohr failed to disclose his wife’s payments from Fusion GPS; Ohr never obtained a conflict of interest waiver from his superiors.
FBI & DOJ Corruption- @TomFitton: The discredited dossier was being used widely by the Justice Department. This is another piece of evidence that the Russia Collusion investigation into @realDonaldTrump is a sham. #MAGA #TrumpTrain #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/ZwYHmFKeZb

Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson recently admitted in a court document that his firm hired Nellie Ohr, the wife of Bruce Ohr to investigate then-candidate Donald Trump.
The corruption in Obama’s DOJ and FBI is astounding. We are way overdue for a real serious investigation; people involved need to go to prison.
