Senior Justice Department official Bruce G. Ohr is a nefarious character indeed. He was demoted last week for concealing that he met with the men behind the now-debunked Trump dossier. But it gets worse...much worse.
Ohr's wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research organization that produced the propaganda piece on Trump; a propaganda piece that had little to do with the truth. Mrs. Ohr was paid by Fusion GPS through the fall of 2016. Her subject specialty: Russia-related subject matter.
It is stunning -- infuriating -- that the Department of Justice has become a fertile political playground for the insider power brokers of politics. It is impossible for a department tasked with assuring justice for all to do so when political operatives freely urinate on objectivity, fairness and a jealous adherence to the rule of law.
Just like when Al Capone's organization had to be cleaved from the city government of Chicago, it is time to thoroughly cleanse the Department of Justice of political appointees. This goes double for all investigative and taxing agencies in the Federal government.
