#Deepstate Wives #NellieOhr


1.  We know her husband is Bruce Ohr, fourth in command at the FBI at the time the phony Trump Dossier was created by Nellie Ohr and Christopher Steele for Fusion GPS.

2.  We know that both Bruce and Nellie Ohr knew Steele before the Russia/Trump Dossier was plotted by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.  We know Bruce Ohr was e-mailing Christopher Steele about it as early as January 2016.

3.  Nellie worked at Fusion GPS.  She (Dr. Ohr) is a recognized Russia expert and studied in the Soviet Union in 1989 before getting her PhD in 1990.  She is said to be fluent in the Russian language and is an expert on cyber security (an unusual combination to say the least). Bruce Ohr is a Deep State husband.  We know Nellie Ohr wrote the dossier for Fusion GPS and we know Bruce Ohr gave all of his wife’s writings about the Trump Russia delusion to the FBI.

4.  According to a sworn statement by Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, Dr. Ohr was hired to conduct opposition research on behalf of the Clinton campaign against presidential candidate Donald Trump.

5.  Nellie’s Degrees include an A.B. from Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges, major: Russian History and Literature; and an M.A. and a PhD in History at Stanford University.

6.  Professional experience: She taught history at Vassar College and has written numerous book reviews (almost exclusively about Russian history… she shows a great deal of sympathy for the dilemmas Stalin faced as he killed 40 million Russians to implement and expand communism in the USSR ).

7.  And here’s something Fox News (and the House Intelligence Committee memo and the Inspector General’s report) didn’t tell you:  On May 23, 2016, Nellie Ohr received a technician-level amateur radio license.

As a cyber security expert, Dr. Ohr would know how difficult it is to hide any computer-or telephone-based communications from Big Brother.  A mystery writer could turn this into a very good plot about how to effectively hide from cyber security experts employed by the U.S. government.  Your message can be delivered without being discovered by using a short-wave radio which puts you in touch with people in foreign countries — like Christopher Steele  — while preventing you from having to register as someone who is doing business with foreign agents.


1.  Melissa Hodgman’s career at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) began in 2008 as an Enforcement Division staff attorney.  As of 2016, her salary was reported as $229,968 (according to the Internet).

2.  Hodgman was promoted to her current position as Associate Director in 2012.  Wow!  Talk about a rising star!  Ms. Hodgman – or perhaps I should say Mrs. Peter Strzok – appears to have had a rocket send her career to Wonderland… from beginning staff attorney to Assistant Director in four years!

Peter Strzok is a Deep State FBI husband.

Hodgman must be admired for being very quiet as her husband’s romantic episode with Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyer Lisa Page has been media-blasted on front pages world-wide.  Or perhaps the Page episode was part of a plot?  The email-based romance was first discovered by the Inspector General at the DOJ who was conducting an investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton investigation.

3.  Ms. Hodgman-Strzok’s career boost happened at precisely the time the FBI needed someone at the SEC to, if need be, control access to any illicit contributions or other transactions from publicly-traded entities (like governments and corporations) involving the Clinton Foundation.

In July 2016, James Comey publicly stated Mrs. Clinton had been “extremely careless” when she used a personal email server.  He told the world she would not be prosecuted .  Keep in mind, it was Peter Strzok who changed the words “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” when Comey made his first statement about Mrs. Clinton’s actions as Secretary of State.

Why is that important?  Had Mrs. Clinton been found “grossly negligent” she would have been guilty of a felony.  Indeed, she was guilty of a felony.  Also keep in mind it was the job of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, not FBI Director James Comey, to determine who would or would not be prosecuted.

4.  In October 2016, more than 600,000 Clinton emails were found on former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s computer (which he shared with his wife, long-term Clinton aide Uma Abedin) while Weiner was being investigated for “sexting” with a minor.

5.  James Comey had to announce that he was re-opening the Clinton investigation.  He had no choice because the information had gotten into the hands of the New York Police Department and so was no longer under the exclusive control of the FBI or DOJ.

Perhaps Comey was looking for an insurance policy at the SEC.  The timing is interesting.  Hodgman-Strzok was appointed to her position as Associate Director of the Enforcement Division of the SEC just three weeks before the presidential election and just hours after the Weiner emails were discovered.  It appears Hodgman-Strzok has oversight over which securities and financial crime cases get forwarded to the FBI and DOJ for prosecution.  Mrs. Hodgman-Strzok heads the SEC’s International Division.

6.  Have you wondered why action against Hillary Clinton moves at 0 mph?  Bear in mind, a great many of the transactions involving the Clinton Foundation involve international financial transactions and investment vehicles.  Is the SEC Inspector General investigating any irregularities involving the SEC’s interactions with the Clinton Foundation?  It does not appear so.


1.  She has been called “…the Guardian of the Deep State’s Secrets Gate.”  If it’s true, it is a well-earned nickname.  Why?  Try researching her on the Internet!  She doesn’t have a shadow of a presence.  It is obvious that many things about her have been removed.

2.  She is referred to as “the cleaner” in the one available Internet document (“cleaner” meaning a person who knows how to destroy evidence of a crime).  The document which makes the statement does not provide specific reference material and supplies a lot of potential gossip about Ms. Barsoomian so I mention it here only as a aside.

3.  Her Deep State Husband is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

As for the one document on the Internet that I find a bit suspicious:  There is too little specific information and too many general comments.  I don’t like “anonymous sources.”  I did go to some federal court cases in which Mrs. Barsoomian-Rosenstein was mentioned as having taken part but the public documents have been removed from public access.

4.  One document is reliable.  It is the online bio about Assistant Attorney General Rosenstein.  It states that Rosenstein is married to Lisa Barsoomian, an Armenian-American lawyer.  It also says that as a government attorney she defended cases for Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, various Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) cases and the “Carnivore” surveillance system (which monitors and captures e-mail).

I believe when she defended the FOIA cases she defended the FBI for rejecting them.

5.  The Rosenstein bio says Mrs. Barsoomian-Rosenstein has been practicing law for 24 years and she works for the National Institute of Health (NIH).

I doubt that’s where she works.  Internet information indicates Mrs. Barsoomian-Rosenstein is/was affiliated with another lawyer named R. Craig Lawrence who, according to cases listed on Mr. Lawrence’s Web site has represented Robert Muller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama 45 times, Kathleen Sebelius 56 times, Bill Clinton 40 times and Hillary Clinton 17 times.  Another source says that between 1998 and 2017 Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

6.  Of all the Deep State husbands I researched, this one is the most chilling.  She is probably a bit like her smug husband with that smirk on his face as he was interviewed by a legitimate Congressional Committee (not that Congress is much to write home about).


1.  Sabina Menschel is the current head of Nardello & Company, a Washington, D.C. detective agency.  Internet sources say she is a 1999 Harvard graduate and her resume indicates intelligence experience.

2.  Her Deep State husband is someone about whom you have not yet heard a lot:  Edward William Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division since 2015.

3.  Bill Priestap was Peter Strzok’s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

4.  It is said that Mrs. Menschel-Priestap is one of Washington D.C.’s most feared private spies.
