Trump Slams Spygate Operative Bruce Ohr; Says Twice-Demoted DOJ Official Should Be Fired

•, by Tyler Durden

President Trump on Monday called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire Bruce Ohr, the DOJ official who was demoted twice after he lied about his involvement with opposition research firm Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson - and had "extensive" 2016 contacts with Christopher Steele, a Fusion GPS contractor who assembled the salacious and unverified "Steele Dossier" using Kremlin sources. 

Ohr's CIA-linked wife, Nellie, was also employed by Fusion as part of the firm's anti-Trump efforts, and had ongoing communications with the ex-UK spy, Christopher Steele as well. 

In a Monday tweet, Trump asked: "Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions  'Justice' Department? A total joke!"
