President Donald Trump demanded to know why DOJ official Bruce Ohr has not yet been fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in a Wednesday tweet.

Trump has railed against Ohr in recent days, saying he will “quickly” revoke his security clearance.

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 Democrat opposition research from Steele.

Ohr appeared before the House oversight and judiciary committee’s to face questions about his role in the FBI investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign.
