Nellie Ohr – a CIA-linked operative who gave extensive anti-Trump research to her DOJ official husband Bruce while she was working for Fusion GPS’ anti-Trump efforts, deleted emails from Bruce’s account during an April, 2016 exchange about Russian influence in Europe.
Contained in over 339 pages of heavily redacted DOJ records obtained by Judicial Watch via FOIA lawsuit, the email chain between Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr, his top aide Lisa Holtyn and Stefan Bress – a first secretary at the German Embassy, discussed among other things the “Impact of Russian influence operations in Europe.”
Holtyn responds with, “I haven’t had a chance to confer with Bruce yet, but would certainly love to meet with the ‘A Team’!” Bruce Ohr then says, “That time works for me as well.” Bress then provides the personal details/passport numbers of the German analysts who will be meeting with Holtyn and Ohr. Holtyn tells Bress that the Ohr’s would like to host the German delegation for dinner and notes that Joe Wheatley and Ivana Nizich (a husband/wife team of DOJ Organized Crime prosecutors and friends of the Ohr’s) would join them as well. –Judicial Watch
At the end of the exchange with the subject line: “Analyst Russian Organized Crime – April 2016,” initiated by Bress, Nellie Ohr writes “Thanks! I’m deleting these emails now.”
“This email is disturbing and suggests documents relevant to the improper targeting of President Trump were destroyed,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
