President Donald Trump is likely to revoke the security clearance of DOJ official Bruce Ohr in short order for his role in advancing the infamous Steele dossier in the FBI investigation of his 2016 campaign.

“Bruce Ohr is a disgrace. I suspect I’ll be taking it away very quickly,” Trump said of the DOJ official. 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 Democratic opposition research from Steele.

Trump railed against Ohr in recent days on Twitter noting specific text messages he sent. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also previewed the likely action at a press briefing Wednesday by listing him in a list of people whose security clearance is under review.
