EXCLUSIVE: A senior Justice Department official was demoted this week amid an ongoing investigation into his contacts with the opposition research firm responsible for the anti-Trump dossier, the department confirmed to Fox News.
Until Wednesday morning, Bruce G. Ohr held two titles at DOJ: associate deputy attorney general, a post that placed him four doors down from his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein; and director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF), a program described by the department as the centerpiece of the attorney generals drug strategy.
Ohr will retain his OCDETF title but has been stripped of his higher post and ousted from his office on the fourth floor of Main Justice.
Initially senior department officials could not provide the reason for Ohrs demotion, but Fox News has learned that evidence collected by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., indicates that Ohr met during the 2016 campaign with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the dossier.

The rot runs deep
More pieces of the Get Trump conspiracy emerge
Giant story. I have stated before and I see this as more evidence that Mueller may be working to expose these people. Imagine that without Mueller Stortz and this guy skates without notice.
Sounds like TREASON............................
Rush thought so, but thought the MSM would bury it..
Why isn’t he completely off the payrolls?
More like pressure from the IG on Weasel Mueller and the not interested Rip van Sessions..
Charge them ALL with TREASON!..........................
Should be in breaking
The swamp is draining & it very well may be Mueller who is opening the drain. Who ever it is, it seems to be working........slowly.
“Top DOJ official demoted amid probe of contacts with Trump dossier firm.”
He should have been fired and prosecuted.
Sessions big push is for the Leakers. This sure looks like one of them. Major paperwork whitewash and then “nothing”. Demoted? Fire and charge with Treason.
Why not fired?
The linchpin to this case is whether that dossier was used to justify otherwise outrageously illegal surveillance. If it was, then people don’t need to be demoted, they need to go to prison. And if that surveillance was used to set a perjury trap for Flynn, he walks.
We don’t need to ‘demote’ the *&*##!@ swamp! We need to drain it! Fire these damned a-holes!
Mueller did jack, he and justice are only taking any action because of congress forcing their hand
Any thoughts Larry ?
Ironic that the dossier that gave them the opportunity to illegally spy on Flynn and the rest should also be the reason that any “evidence” should be thrown out and those who continue this crap should be dealt with - with extreme prejudice....
Another Deep Swamp American Traitor who should go to prison.
This is just straight-up criminal behavior.
