Congressional Investigators Seeking Nellie Ohr’s Fusion GPS Oppo Research Records on Trump’s Family
House GOP lawmakers are working to obtain Nellie Ohr’s Fusion GPS opposition research records on Trump’s family according to Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge.
Nellie Ohr told Congress in a closed-door hearing in October of last year that she investigated Trump, his wife Melania and his children as part of her oppo research work for Fusion GPS.

During her December 2018 closed-door deposition on Capitol Hill, Nellie Ohr told investigators she did the opposition research on the Trump family for Fusion GPS. Sources said her project predated the hiring of former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier.
“I was asked to research Trump’s family broadly in connection with any – any Russian connections,” she said.
Nellie Ohr confirmed to investigators that she explored family members’ foreign travel, among other issues. “I did some research on all of them, but not in much depth,” she said.
She also said the purpose was to “see whether they were involved in dealings and transactions with people who had suspicious pasts, or suspicious types of dealings.”
At the time of her testimony, Nellie Ohr said she was still in possession of the research but was unclear whether it was hers to share, or whether it was owned by her former employer, Fusion GPS.
“Do you still possess the research that you performed?” a Republican investigator asked her during the interview.
“Yes,” she responded.
“Would you be willing to share that with the committee?”
“I guess so,” Nellie Ohr said.
Bruce Ohr was a top official in the DOJ working as an Assistant Deputy Attorney General and was ultimately demoted twice for his connection to Christopher Steele and for promoting the phony dossier.
Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr was contracted by oppo research firm Fusion GPS to “assist in cultivation of opposition research on Trump” and her hubby Bruce passed along her Hillary Clinton/DNC-funded dirt to the FBI.
The phony Hillary-funded dossier was eventually used to obtain a FISA warrant on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Congressman Mark Meadows recently criminally referred Nellie Ohr to the Justice Department after hundreds of new emails surfaced, contradicting her previous statements to Congress.
It is unclear if Nellie’s Ohr’s oppo research on Trump’s kids ended up in the phony dossier.
