Judge admits working with 'suspect' and delays release of docs

(Gateway Pundit) – Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch sued the Justice Department in March of this year for docs and records related to Bruce and Nellie Ohr and Fusion GPS.

On Sept. 6, President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton attended a hearing along with JW counsel Ramona Cotca to obtain Bruce Ohr docs after months of stonewalling from the DOJ.

The Judge assigned to the case admitted he previously worked with Bruce Ohr at the DOJ and delayed the release of Ohr emails to December 1st (after the midterms). 

The Bruce Ohr-linked Judge also gave the DOJ until February of 2019 to turn over calendars (dockets).

Twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr is still employed by the Justice Department even though emails and texts revealed he was working as a backchannel for the FBI to continue communicating with Christopher Steele.

Fitton said: Judicial Watch will get emails by 12/1 but stonewalling DOJ gets until Feb 2019 to turn over calendars. The judge in case admits he worked with Ohr at DOJ and may be on the calendars.
