The company behind the anti-Trump dossier admits to hiring the wife of a top Justice Department official to help investigate the president.
According to court documents Wednesday, Glenn Simpson said his company Fusion GPS paid Nellie Ohr to analyze president trump during his 2016 campaign.
Simpson also said he met with Nellie’s husband Bruce Ohr to discuss their findings on Russia and the election.
Bruce has since been demoted for concealing his meetings with the company.
The revelations are raising concerns over the conflict of interests in the Russia probe, prompting the president’s legal team to demand a second special counsel.
One America’s John Hines has more from Washington.
