President Donald Trump demanded to know why DOJ official Bruce Ohr has not yet been fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in a Wednesday tweet.
How the hell is Bruce Ohr still employed at the Justice Department? Disgraceful! Witch Hunt!

Trump has railed against Ohr in recent days, saying he will “quickly” revoke his security clearance.
Newly released text messages between Ohr and dossier other Christopher Steele reveal a close relationship between the two as well as the involvement of Ohr’s wife. Ohr’s wife was an employee of the firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the Democrat opposition research from Steele.
“The FBI received documents from Bruce Ohr (of the Justice Department & whose wife Nelly worked for Fusion GPS).” Disgraced and fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok. This is too crazy to be believed! The Rigged Witch Hunt has zero credibility.
