Two names that have been at odds with Trump supporters to varying degrees are Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Senator Ben Sasse. The former somehow came to the conclusion that lies and manipulations that predicated and advanced an investigation into a presidential campaign and the early days of an administration were not based on political bias. The latter has been a critic of the President’s off and on for over three years. But today, they tag-teamed to expose the most essential component of Spygate: Bruce Ohr.
Without Ohr, there’s a good chance Christopher Steele would have been relegated to the FBI’s trash bin of sources. Without Ohr’s wife, Nellie, the connection between the FBI and Fusion GPS, with whom she was a contractor until late 2016, may never have made it into 2017. These two conspirators engaged in an unambiguous disinformation operation within the FBI to keep the flickering flame of hope alive that the Bureau could somehow bust President Trump and reverse the 2016 election results. And yet, Bruce Ohr is still employed by the FBI today.
As director of the FBI’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, Bruce Ohr had precisely zero reasons to be involved in a counter-intelligence operation involving the Trump campaign or the administration. His only role was to reinvigorate the Steele Dossier and keep the biased investigation chugging along. And it worked. His actions resulted in continued FISA warrant renewals and the ongoing investigation that yielded no fruit other than distracting the nation and being a huge waste of resources.
The first couple of minutes of this video are telling. Sasse wanted to “pick up some loose ends” with his time questioning Horowitz and immediately jumped on Ohr as his focus. “Bruce Ohr – who is he and what is his role at the department? And then let’s ask some questions about the bizarre pathway by which he became involved with this investigation.”
Horowitz replied, “So, at the time of these events, he was an Associated Deputy Attorney General and the head of the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force working out the Deputy Attorney General’s office.”
This seemed to perplex Sasse, and rightly so. “The Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force. And that’s connected to election interference by the Russians how?”
Horowits: “Uh, it is not.”
Sasse: “What the hell is he doing here?”
Horowitz: “That was precisely the concern which we lay out here. He had no role in any of the election interference matters.”
Sasse then went into a lengthy description of the dynamic between law enforcement agencies and ODAG, the Office of the Deputy Attorney General which has primary oversight. If Ohr hadn’t been off on assignment on an unrelated task force, he would have been responsible for seeing the clear violations of protocols the FBI had engaged in with regards to the Trump campaign. Instead, he inserted himself into the matter and helped prolong the wrongdoing that was taking place.
In November, 2016, the FBI “closed” (meaning released from being an informant) Steele because he had leaked information to Mother Jones magazine. That’s when Bruce and Nellie Ohr got involved.
“The FBI was not a reluctant participant in this relationship that was a conduit from Bruce Ohr – through Bruce Ohr to Steele – as we lay out here (pointing to the IG report),” Horowitz said, “So I just want to be clear. They’re not saying ‘we don’t want to deal with him.’ They’re saying “oh, ya, call… essentially if you have something we would love to hear from him.”
This is huge. It demonstrates the FBI went far out of its way to make sure they had access to Christopher Steele even after he had been “closed.” They needed the Steele Dossier to remain as the key for them to continue renewing warrants and spying on the administration in its early days even though they had come to the conclusion it was debunked months before.
The exchange between Sasse and Horowitz demonstrates the measures by which the FBI forced the issue to continue engaging with Christopher Steele through Bruce Ohr. It reeks of more than bias. Ohr was their best shot at the so-called “coup.”

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
