President Trump called former deputy U.S. attorney general Bruce Ohr a total joke on Monday, calling for the Justice Department official to be fired.

Nellie Ohr, Mr. Ohr’s wife, worked at Fusion GPS. Democrats hired that firm during the 2016 election to investigate then-candidate Trump, which resulted in Christopher Steele’s infamous dossier.

Republicans have touted the dossier as the basis for the Russian investigation and accusations of collusion, though intelligence officials deny it.

Mr. Ohr is on the president’s short list to lose security clearance.

“I think Bruce Ohr is a disgrace and I suspect I’ll be taking it away very quickly,” the president told reporters on Friday.
