No time limits, no ‘public circus’: Bruce Ohr to testify behind closed doors, Trey Gowdy says
AUGUST 13, 2018
There will be no “public circus” when top Obama-era Justice Department official Bruce Ohr speaks to lawmakers later this month, said House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., on Monday.
Ohr, who fed the FBI information from ex-British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the Trump dossier, even after Steele was cut as a source for providing confidential information to the media, is set to testify before members of the Oversight and Judiciary Committees on Aug. 28.
Ohr will have to “answer why he had 60+ contacts with dossier author, Chris Steele, as far back as January 2016. He owes the American public the full truth,” said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., in revealing that the interview would be taking place.
