Attorney General Jeff Sessions is in the middle of another controversy.
President Trump – and many of his supporters – contends Sessions has not taken a strong stand against the Deep State.
Now Sessions is in big trouble after what Trump just tweeted.
President Trump blasted Sessions for not firing Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr.
Ohr’s wife Nellie worked for Fusion GPS and helped dig up dirt on President Trump.
Will Bruce Ohr, whose family received big money for helping to create the phony, dirty and discredited Dossier, ever be fired from the Jeff Sessions “Justice” Department? A total joke!

Ohr also communicated with ex-British spy Christopher Steele.
Steele used Ohr as a backchannel to the FBI after the Bureau ended their agreement to use Steele as a confidential human informant.
Congressional Republicans are zeroing in on Ohr’s role in the Russia collusion hoax.
Ohr is scheduled to testify to Congress on August 28th.
Republicans will press him on his role in the Russia investigation as well as his wife’s relationship with Fusion GPS and the Trump-Russia dossier.
Ohr – who was the fourth ranking Justice Department official – was demoted after reports surfaced of his conduct in the 2016 election.
However, Trump – as well as his supporters – are questioning why he wasn’t fired.
They point the blame at Sessions.
As Attorney General, Sessions could terminate Ohr’s employment.
It has not happened.
And many Americans are asking why.
