Rep John Ratcliffe says he has seen all four unredacted FISA applications and none of them mention Bruce or Nellie Ohr. But, when you sign a FISA application, you are swearing that you have provided all the information you have.
A judge would have taken a second and a third look, had they known Hillary and the DNC was paying for the dossier. (That was also hidden from the judge even though it was common knowledge at the top of the FBI and DOJ) It also failed to give the conflicts of interest Bruce Ohr had with his wife working on the dossier. The penalty for signing a false FISA app is five years.
Ratcliffe told Fox News’s Martha McCallum, “We know very clearly, and it’s not in dispute, that Bruce Ohr had more than 60 contacts with Christopher Steele, and his wife was retained and paid to create the dossier with Christopher Steele.
“Those are the definitions of material facts, and why it comes into play, Martha is, was this just Bruce Ohr and his wife? Or who at the Department of Justice and who at the FBI was aware of this information? When did they become aware of it, because it goes to those four separate FISA applications and the information that was sworn to before those judges.”
Ratcliffe said former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe, and current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein all swore to the FISA court “that they were giving full and complete information about the dossier. And I can tell you, having seen the unredacted FISA applications, that Bruce Ohr and his involvement and Nellie Ohr and her involvement was never disclosed in any of the four applications.”
There seems to bes no doubt that all four broke the law, but it’s less obvious that any of them will ever appear in court. As long as Jeff “AWOL” Sessions is AG, it’s highly unlikely. It might give Carter Page a huge settlement when he sues civilly.
