Bruce Ohr resigned from the Justice Department a day before he was going to be fired.
Recall, top DOJ official Bruce Ohr worked as a backchannel linking Christopher Steele’s dossier to the FBI after Steele was terminated by the FBI in the fall of 2016.
“Bruce Ohr is no longer working at DOJ. He resigned the day before he was going to be terminated by DOJ over his conduct cited in IG Horowitz report.” Catherine Herridge reported.
Bruce Ohr was a top official in the DOJ working as an Assistant Deputy Attorney General and was ultimately demoted twice for his connection to Christopher Steele and for promoting the phony dossier.
Bruce Ohr’s wife Nellie Ohr was contracted by oppo research firm Fusion GPS to “assist in cultivation of opposition research on Trump” and her hubby Bruce passed along her Hillary Clinton/DNC-funded dirt to the FBI.
The phony Hillary-funded dossier was eventually used to obtain a FISA warrant on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch previously obtained DOJ documents showing Bruce Ohr received a larger bonus during the Russiagate investigation than he did the previous year — and even got a raise after he was demoted.
The DOJ documents reveal Bruce Ohr received a $28,000 bonus in November of 2016, shortly after the first FISA warrant was granted on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page — this was at the height of Russiagate.
Was Bruce Ohr rewarded for his role in Russiagate?
Mr. Ohr then received a $2,600 pay increase after he was demoted and reassigned from his position!
Why did it take so long to oust Bruce Ohr??
Furthermore, his wife Nellie Ohr was criminally referred to the Justice Department last year by House Republicans after hundreds of new emails surfaced, contradicting her previous statements to Congress and no action has been taken by the DOJ.
