President Trump: 'Where Is Jeff Sessions?'

By    |   Tuesday, 16 October 2018 12:20 PM

As Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson arrived on Capitol Hill to plead the Fifth Amendment on discrepancies on his congressional testimony, President Donald Trump issued tweets calling for action from his Justice Department and recused Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

President Trump's tweets highlighted a Fox News report by chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge, who reported on Simpson's conflicting testimony and Justice Department official Bruce Ohr's conflict of interest in being used as a "back channel" on the dossier used to spring the investigation of the then-Republican presidential candidate Trump.

"'Conflict between Glen [sic] Simpson's testimony to another House Panel about his contact with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr,'" Trump tweeted, referencing Herridge's report on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "'Ohr was used by Simpson and [British spy Christopher] Steele as a Back Channel to get (FAKE) Dossier to FBI. Simpson pleading Fifth.' Catherine Herridge. Where is Jeff Sessions?"

Sessions, who has recused himself from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into 2016 election meddling and potential Trump campaign collusion with Russia, would be the one who would have to charge Simpson, if he were to have perjured himself.

The conflicting testimony is possibly related to use of Ohr, whose wife Nellie was paid by Simpson and Fusion GPS to help create the dossier, according to the report, prompting another President Trump tweet asking if Ohr was still employed by the DOJ.

"Is it really possible that Bruce Ohr, whose wife Nellie was paid by Simpson and GPS Fusion for work done on the Fake Dossier, and who was used as a Pawn in this whole SCAM (WITCH HUNT), is still working for the Department of Justice?????" Trump tweeted. "Can this really be so?????"
