Court papers made public on Tuesday confirmed that Ohr’s wife was paid by Fusion GPS, the opposition-research firm behind the anti-Trump dossier. In a federal court affidavit, Glenn Simpson, the firm’s founder, confirmed that he met with Ohr last year, at Ohr’s request, in November after the election.
No one finds it strange that these text messages are out in the open for everyone to see and the media is making it headline news day after day after day after day?
I guess we'll just have to take the media's word for it.
WASHINGTON — The Justice Department invited a group of reporters to its offices on Tuesday night to view private text messages sent during the 2016 campaign by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, former investigators on the special counsel Robert Mueller's team, Business Insider has learned.
President Donald Trump's allies have seized on the texts, which were critical of Trump, describing them as evidence that Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in last year's election, including whether members of Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow, has been tainted.
The texts were obtained as part of an investigation this year by the DOJ's inspector general into how the FBI handled the probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
The Department of Justice released 90 pages of text messages late Tuesday night, many harshly critical of candidate Donald Trump, that were exchanged between an FBI lawyer and an agent who was later assigned to Robert Mueller's special counsel team.
The e-mails were exchanged between Peter Strzok, one of the top FBI agents assigned to the Mueller investigation, and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer. The two were romantically involved.
The Justice Department’s decision to provide the texts to Capitol Hill in the middle of an investigation is also likely to attract scrutiny from Democrats. Mr. Trump has criticized the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, for not doing enough to protect him on the Russia investigation.
By releasing the texts, the Justice Department has given Mr. Trump both a shield and a sword in his political battle with Mr. Mueller’s investigators.

No wonder Hillary Clinton could not believe that she wasn't 51 points ahead of Donald Trump.
The United States government and the national news media breaking all of their own internal rules to help push her across the finish line as the winner.

Say it is a murder trial, and the cop investigating it has texts that say ..
“I hope this POS goes down.. I think he did it. Plus he beats his kids.”
Is the murderer gonna walk??
True that is where we need to figure out whether the cop's bias supported his efforts that could have been out of line. I think a fake dossier would be equal to a cop putting the guy's DNA on a weapon just to make sure...
The dossier is not fake, though. Some of it has not been verified and some of it has been proven to be true.
