The wife of a Justice Department official who was demoted for failing to disclose his meeting with the Trump “dossier” author worked for the opposition research firm behind the document, according to a published report on Monday.
Bruce Ohr, who lost his senior level post as associate deputy general, is the husband of Nellie Ohr – an employee during the 2016 election for Fusion GPS, which compiled the anti-Trump document, officials told Fox News Channel.
It wasn’t immediately clear what Nellie Ohr did for Fusion GPS or if she had any ties to the salacious document. In public biographies, Nellie Ohr has been listed as a Russia expert, according to Fox.
Bruce Ohr had two titles until last week, as director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force but more significantly as associate deputy general – a top post that put him just four office doors away from his boss, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.
