HERRIDGE: "Sean, a review by Fox News of Bruce Ohr's Justice Department e-mails and  handwritten notes shows he is deeply connected to the Trump dossier and the scandal over alleged government surveillance abuse. During closed door congressional testimony last year, the co-founder of Fusion GPS Glenn Simpson, the firm behind the dossier, claimed no contact with Ohr until after the 2016 election. But Ohr’s work e-mails conflict with Simpson's testimony showing contact months earlier. Ohr’s wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS, the firm hired by the DNC and Clinton campaign for the Trump dossier based on the former British spy Christopher Steele’s research. After the FBI dropped Steele as a source in 2016, the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee found that Steele maintained contact using Ohr as a backchannel."
