Lawyers for Donald Trump are beginning to make new levels of noise about bias in the Justice Department’s handling of a special counsel inquest into Russian interference with last year’s election.

And in order to right what they see as a listing ship, the president’s attorneys want a new special counsel – to investigate the existing one.

A Fox News Channel report established new facts Monday night about senior Justice Department official Bruce Ohr who was demoted last week for concealing his contacts with the people responsible for compiling a salacious and unsubstantiated ‘dirty dossier’ on then-candidate Trump.

Ohr’s wife Nellie worked during the 2016 election season for Fusion GPS, the Democratic-funded opposition research firm that commissioned the dossier from a former British spy in order to boost the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

‘The Department of Justice and FBI cannot ignore the multiple problems that have been created by these obvious conflicts of interests,’ Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow told Axios, a news website.

‘These new revelations require the appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate.’

This is a separate line of thinking from one suggesting that a new special counsel should probe Clinton for alleged conflicts of interest related to her family foundation.

Some Republicans want new light shed on international relationships the Clinton Foundation had between 2009 and 2013 in countries whose concerns were on then-Secretary of State Clinton’s desk.

Also in that stream of thought are accusations about the controversial sale of Uranium One and its mineral rights to the Russian government.

But the more recent calls for a new independent investigator are reflections of GOP panic following guilty pleas from two former Trump officials and pending charges facing two more.

Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn and onetime Trump campaign foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos have both admitted they lied to the FBI about their pre-inauguration contacts with Russians.
