GOP investigators seek Nellie Ohr's research for Fusion GPS on Trump family
[Washington Examiner] Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, is under scrutiny again.

In testimony to lawmakers late last year, Ohr said she gathered information during the 2016 campaign about President Trump, his wife Melania Trump, and his children for Fusion GPS, the same opposition research firm that was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign for British ex-spy Christopher Steele's anti-Trump dossier.

The Republican investigators want to know if Ohr's Trump family research made it to the FBI or got into Steele's dossier.

Ohr testified in December that she was tasked with researching the Trump family "broadly in connection with any ‐ any Russian

#5  Regarding Nellie, I think it is great that a 50-something woman should suddenly decide to take up ham radio as a hobby. We should celebrate her as a STEM hero.

Of course, that might invite some embarrassing scrutiny...

#6  When I was a kid there was this one woman married to a successful attorney. We all called her Mz. Frizzy Bean and wonderd why she didn't spend any money on her awful hair.

Does this photo prove Trump tormentor's second marriage was a sham? Far-left Ilhan Omar is pictured with her first husband AND her second husband - as Trump accuses him of being her BROTHER and he posts from a beach
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • President Donald Trump suggested Rep. Ilhan Omar was 'married to her brother'

  • Reignited an explosive rumor that first emerged during Omar's 2016 campaign

  • Omar has failed to disprove the claims of bigamy and fraternal marriage

  • She has called the rumors 'baseless, absurd' and amounting to Islamophobia

#4  Like Obama, the left chooses to give this woman a pass on everything despite wrong-doing. If you choose to question this circuitous mess of two marriages, you do so at the risk of being called racist, xenophobic, islamophobic and sexist. For the left, they use color, sex, and language to hide behind and mask political agenda. The MSM abets all this. The time is long past when we should give a flip what the left says about much of anything. Screw them. Vote them out!

I can't help but wonder how Justine Damond, previously of Minneapolis, Minnesota, felt about Somali immigrants.

CNBC: Mueller witness George Nader charged with transporting boy for sex, child porn

George Nader, who was a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, is charged in a new federal indictment with transporting a 14-year-old boy for sex, child pornography and carrying obscene materials.

Nader has been an advisor to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates.

Mueller’s report says Nader helped arrange a January 2017 meeting between Erik Prince and the head of Russia’s sovereign wealth fund, who reported directly to Vladimir Putin, as part of a purported Russian effort to build a link with President Donald Trump’s new administration.

George Nader, a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, has been charged in a new federal indictment with transporting a 14-year-old boy for sex two decades ago, child pornography and carrying obscene materials into the United States.

The new charges against Nader, a 60-year-old Middle East power broker, were revealed Friday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

A dual citizen of Lebanon and the United States, Nader is scheduled to go on trial on Sept. 30

According to Politico, a near 30 year pattern. Strange no one noticed.

#3  That's strange, Nader is not a Pashtun name, it is a Turkish name. The Pashtun's are the ones who embrace the practice of bacha bazi. OTH, we must have a lot of Pashtuns in Washington, Hollywood and on the Blue Coasts.

#6  TrailingWife. Change a few words around of "Boys for love and pleasure, wives for babies" and this has the lilt of the lyrics from the Dire Straits song "Money for Nothing:" "Money for nothin' chicks for free." You have the soul of a poet.
