If you thought the DOJ official secretly meeting with Fusion GPS was bad, wait until you hear what his wife did!

The plot thickens.

A top DOJ official was stripped of his title after it was discovered he had met with the men behind the infamous Trump dossier, Fox News reported on Monday.

Not only did Bruce Ohr meet with Glen Simpson and Christopher Steele during the presidential campaign, Bruce’s wife Nellie Ohr worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the unproven dossier.

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence confirmed to Fox that Mrs. Ohr worked for Fusion during the election and was paid by the firm through the summer of 2016.

“The House Intelligence Committee,” Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told Fox News in a statement on Monday, “is looking into all facets of the connections between the Department of Justice and Fusion GPS, including Mr. Ohr.”

Mr. Ohr was stripped of his senior position at the DOJ where he held rank as associate deputy attorney general until last Monday. Ohr was demoted one day before Fox broke the news that he had secretly met on more than one occasion with Fusion founder Glenn Simpson and Christopher Steele, the former British spy who compiled the debunked dossier.

It wasn’t until a week later that Fox learned that Mrs. Ohr worked for Fusion GPS.

The DOJ gave no explanation of Ohr’s demotion to Fox News, but he still retains another, less senior position as director of the Organized Crime Drug Task Force. The DOJ told Fox Ohr’s bosses were not previously aware of his meetings with Steel and Simpson.

Ohr’s previous position ranked him just under Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the ongoing Russia investigation that President Trump has called a witch hunt.

The “Trump dossier” has become a lightning rod of debate when it was discovered the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC financed the report to smear then-candidate Trump.

Republicans are investigating whether the Obama administration used the discredited dossier as “evidence” to spy on the Trump campaign.
