Remember this bombshell from last December?

Luke Rosiak at The Daily Caller is reporting Wednesday night that Justice Department official Bruce Ohr did not disclose on ethics forms that his wife, Nellie Ohr, was being paid by opposition research firm Fusion GPS.
-Bruce Ohr didn't list Fusion GPS on ethics forms under spouse's income sources
-Lying on the forms can carry jail time
-Feds got FISC warrant w/o noting financial relationship; could be because they weren't told
-Pattern of evasiveness about the paymentshttps://t.co/BkktUGgIz7

Bruce Ohr, the Department of Justice official who brought opposition research on President Donald Trump to the FBI, did not disclose that Fusion GPS, which performed that research at the Democratic National Committee’s behest, was paying his wife, and did not obtain a conflict of interest waiver from his superiors at the Justice Department, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.
The omission may explain why Ohr was demoted from his post as associate deputy attorney general after the relationship between Fusion GPS and his wife emerged and Fusion founder Glenn Simpson acknowledged meeting with Ohr. Willfully falsifying government ethics forms can carry a penalty of jail time, if convicted.
News about Bruce Ohr, who is often forgotten in listing of those involved in the criminal conspiracy. https://t.co/XA73edPPAa

Why AG Sessions is not knocking on his door with a summons is beyond me. This is low hanging fruit and he’ll sing like a canary.

Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele and the Democrats involved stink to high heaven. If this is all swept under the rug, our justice system might as well cease to exist

And still nothing from Sessions but crickets.
