(National Sentinel) Collusion: On Thursday presidential lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested the Justice Department investigate one of its own officials, Bruce Ohr, regarding payments his wife, Nellie, received while working for Fusion GPS, the firm that produced the bogus “Russia dossier.”

“What are the odds the DOJ or Mueller have begun an investigation of Bruce Ohr for violating 18 USC sec. 208? That’s a federal felony unless he disclosed all facts to the DOJ and has a written waiver. How many of you know what that is?” Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, wrote on Twitter.

Giuliani was referring to whether Bruce Ohr had issued his wife a waiver so she could work for Fusion, which commissioned the dossier that the FBI eventually used as part of its justification to open a counterintelligence investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign.

“Ohr’s wife was financially benefitted by Ohr, a DOJ official, advancing the Steele phony dossier. Her firm got some part of the $1.02 million paid by Hillary and DNC. A crime unless he has a written waiver from Obama’s politicized DOJ which is possible,” Giuliani said in a second tweet.

Nellie Ohr, a Russia expert (some say a Russian apologist) “worked for Fusion GPS as part of its Democrat-funded investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government,” The Daily Caller reported.

The site added:

The law firm that represented the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid Fusion GPS just over $1 million to investigate Trump. Fusion, which was founded by three former Wall Street Journal reporters, paid Steele $178,000 for his work. Nellie Ohr was paid $44,000, according to California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who took part in Ohr’s hearing Tuesday.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported that Ohr did not obtain a conflict of interest waiver from the Justice Department for his wife’s work.

Giuliani said Nellie Ohr being paid for working on the dossier would constitute “a crime unless he has a written waiver from Obama’s politicized DOJ which is possible.”

Ohr testified before Congress during a closed-door session earlier this week. Reports say he “had contact in 2016 with then-colleague Andrew Weissmann, who is now a top Robert Mueller deputy, as well as other senior FBI officials about the controversial anti-Trump dossier and the individuals behind it,” The Gateway Pundit reported.

That should kill Mueller’s entire probe.

“This is a dramatic and stunning development that should effectively end Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation. And in fact, he should immediately fire Andrew Weissman and terminate his special counsel probe,” said Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett.
