In the Hot Seat: Jim Jordan Previews Bruce Ohr's House Testimony About Fusion GPS, Steele Dossier

Demoted Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr is testifying behind closed doors on Capitol Hill Tuesday about his connection to British spy Christopher Steele. Steele is the spy who compiled the Fusion GPS dossier on Donald Trump, which was paid for by the Clinton campaign.

Ohr is voluntarily testifying today and answering questions about his wife Nellie Ohr, who was hired at Fusion GPS to do opposition research on Trump and his campaign. 

During a short interview this morning Congressman Jim Jordan, who has been at the forefront of exposing Fusion GPS ties to the Obama Justice Department, previewed some of the questions lawmakers are looking to ask.

"I want to know who at DOJ knew," Jordan said. "We have lots of questions."

Congressman Mark Meadows, who chairs the House Freedom Caucus, echoed Jordan's sentiments.

Last week it was revealed Ohr was concerned the firing of former FBI director James Comey would "expose" a scheme between DOJ and Steele. 

A collection of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr's emails, texts and handwritten notes, reviewed by Fox News, reveals that he was deeply connected to the unverified Steele dossier as well as its author and, during the presidential election campaign, the alleged government surveillance abuses involving a Trump campaign official.

Ohr wrote that Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy who wrote the salacious dossier, was "very concerned (abt) about [former FBI Director James] Comey's firing -- afraid they will be exposed."
