Another Top DOJ Official Demoted

This one, who worked closely with should-be-fired-immediately Rod Rosenstein, met with Christopher Steele and FusionGPS about Hillary Clinton's oppo file.

The Department of Justice has demoted a top official over his contacts with the former British spy who authored the Trump dossier as well as with Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the salacious document.

Fox News reports that Bruce G. Ohr was removed from his position as associate deputy attorney general on Wednesday. Ohr, who worked in close proximity to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, had contacts last year with dossier author Christopher Steele as well as with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS.

According to Fox News, Ohr met Steele at some point during the presidential campaign. He met Simpson around Thanksgiving 2016. During that coffee meeting, Simpson and Ohr reportedly discussed the dossier, the Trump investigation and Simpson’s frustration with Trump's electoral victory.

There's a reason these corrupt motherfuckers have been stonewalling -- they know they are up to their rat whiskers in this.

Fire them all. I don't care if firing alleged "non-political" civil servants will be challenged in court and cost a lot of money. 1, it's worth it, and 2, it's not impossible to fire these people. You can fire for cause, and this is cause.
