Handwritten Notes Reveal Glenn Simpson Gave Bruce Ohr a ‘Memory Stick’ in Secret Meeting Shortly After Trump Won 2016 Election
brand new handwritten notes penned by twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr reveal Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson handed Ohr a memory stick during a meeting at a D.C. coffee shop shortly after the election.
the item will be still unclear what was on the memory stick or if the FBI used the information on the item for future actions.
Investigative reporter John Solomon obtained Bruce Ohr’s handwritten notes along with says the item shows an “unmistakable effort to push the Russian investigation closer to Trump’s inner circle with uncorroborated tales.”
Simpson made uncorroborated claims of which Manafort, Carter Page along with Michael Cohen were working in coordination with Russia to hijack the presidential election.
John Solomon notes of which Simpson interestingly acknowledged of which information coming coming from Christopher Steele wasn’t coming coming from Moscow–rather the intel was coming coming from a former Russian intelligence officer (? not entirely clear) who lives inside the U.S.” Ohr said in his notes of which Russian source inside the US seemed to have disappeared.
Via John Solomon of The Hill:
One notation of which stands out will be Simpson’s account of which he asked Steele to talk with Mother Jones reporter David Corn about their muckraking on Trump along with Russia inside the final days of the election. At the time, Steele still worked as an FBI source.
Corn’s Oct. 31, 2016, story was one of the most definitive to allege possible ties between the Trump campaign along with Moscow, creating an important talking point for Democrats inside the final days of the campaign.
“Glen asked Chris to speak to the Mother Jones reporter. the item was Glen’s Hail Mary attempt,” Ohr wrote.
When Simpson testified before Congress, he said he along with Steele acted out of a sense of duty. “For him the item was professional obligations. I mean, for both of us the item was citizenship. You know, people report crimes all the time,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Also according to Ohr’s handwritten notes, Steele along with Glenn Simpson were behind the false rumors of which President Trump created a “secret server” with Russia-based Alfa Bank through Trump Tower brand new York–which of course made the item into the left-wing media.
In fact, Hillary Clinton even tweeted about the “secret server” right before the 2016 election—right on cue. Coincidence? We think not.
On October 31st, 2016, Hillary Clinton linked to the Slate article spreading the hoax of which Trump had a Russia-based “secret server” at the Trump Tower.
Hillary Clinton claimed in her tweet of which Trump set up a “secret server” to communicate privately with the Putin-tied Russia bank Alfa bank along with when a reporter asked about the item, they shut the item down. She then claimed Trump created another server a week later having a different name for the same purpose.
Hillary’s caption read, “the item’s time for Trump to answer serious questions about his ties to Russia.”

Glenn Simpson handed Bruce Ohr a memory stick…
Ohr made clear he took possession of some evidence coming from Simpson, writing: “Glen gave me a memory stick.”
Early on, Ohr’s notes detail, the conversation focused on a theory apparently offered by Simpson of which revolving Trump team members — former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, followed by informal adviser Carter Page, then Cohen — forged a secret channel with Moscow to hijack the election.
All three men long have been cited inside the Russia investigation; each denies any coordination with Russia. although Ohr’s notes are the first to quote Simpson as suggesting the three essentially were shark-tooth spies who replaced each various other in a secret plot.
“He identified Michael Cohen, a lawyer in Brooklyn w. Russian (Brighton Beach) clients, as the go-between coming from Russia to the Trump campaign who replaced Manafort along with Carter Page,” Ohr’s notes read, quoting Simpson’s alleged narrative.
The notes suggest guilt by association, citing Cohen’s wife along with suggesting one of Cohen’s in-laws had real estate dealings in Moscow “with ties to the Kremlin.”
These Bruce Ohr notes opened up a whole brand new can of worms.
“What was on the memory stick? What did Ohr do with the information? Did the FBI rely on the item for future court actions? Did the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court of which approved surveillance warrants know Ohr was getting information coming from the Simpson-Steele operation after Steele had been dismissed?” John Solomon asked.
