They didn't put up much of a fight over firing Strzok, Page, and so on. But there's a very odd op-ed over at the Washington Examiner...
Yes, he's seriously going to compare what Bruce Ohr did to stealing pens from am embassy at 14.
Bruce Ohr's wife was hired by Fusion GPS, Hillary Clinton's opposition research firm, to work on the Steele dossier the Clinton team was using to try to smear Trump. That document was also used to start an illegal counterintelligence investigation against US citizens that was, in reality, a pretext to spy on the Trump campaign and administration. When Steele was discredited as an FBI source (a position he never should have occupied, given his employment with both Hillary Clinton through Fusion GPS and likely Oleg Deripaska), Ohr continued to meet with Steel and to funnel material from Steele's dossier work (obtained from Steele directly and, one presumes, informally through his wife) to the FBI so the FBI could continue to use it despite Steele being terminated as a source.
And that's just what we know from text messages and other documents. Ohr -- both Nellie and Bruce -- appear to have been full participants in the Spygate scheme.
That's a hell of a lot more than stealing pens, or even failing to report a meeting with a foreign source.
For anyone following Spygate, his name is very familiar.
He's already been demoted twice. How much of his job is really left? And for that matter, who is this Zaid fellow besides "National security attorney Mark Zaid"? Is Zaid representing Ohr? Seems likely.
The allegations against Bruce Ohr are far, far more than just a pretext. Again, he's already been demoted twice for them. Likely the only reason he still has a clearance is so he could talk to investigators about what he was up to.
I bet the IG's name is already on several such documents.
