Trump Swipes at Justice Department: ‘How the Hell Is Bruce Ohr Still Employed’ There?


Following the closed-door testimony of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, President Donald Trump swiped at his own DOJ again on Twitter.

“How the hell is Bruce Ohr still employed at the Justice Department?” Trump tweeted. “Disgraceful! Witch Hunt!”

Ohr was grilled by Republican lawmakers about his ties to Christopher Steele and the infamous dossier on Trump.

Trump has gone after Ohr a few times before. Though he is still employed as a Justice Department staffer, Ohr was one of the people on his list of people the White House confirmed POTUS may strip security clearances from.

“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!” Trump tweeted last week.

Trump’s criticisms of the DOJ come at a time when Jeff Sessions publicly looks more on the outs with the president than ever, with senators like Lindsey Graham openly talking about Trump replacing him soon.
