Donald Trump is accusing Justice Department ‘boss’ Bruce Ohr of colluding with his wife Nellie to deliver the dossier of salacious claims about the president’s sex life to the FBI.

He wants Ohr to be fired by Jeff Sessions, mounting a campaign against both officials that seems to be gaining traction after key lawmakers said this week they’d support Trump if he axed his his attorney general.

‘Wow, Nellie Ohr, Bruce Ohr’s wife, is a Russia expert who is fluent in Russian. She worked for Fusion GPS where she was paid a lot. Collusion!’ Trump said. ‘Bruce was a boss at the Department of Justice and is, unbelievably, still there!’

The dossier that Nellie Ohr’s firm commissioned was used as evidence in a search warrant to spy on a Trump associate and contained humiliating claims about the former businessman’s conduct.

Ohr was an employee at the time at the opposition research firm Fusion GPS. The firm hired an ex-British spy, Christopher Steele, a friend of the Ohrs, to build the case against Trump on Hillary Clinton’s campaign’s behalf. The work was later funded by Republicans.

Trump laughed at the irony of claims that his campaign may have colluded with Russia to meddle in the election in a Thursday tweet that accused the Ohrs of colluding with each other to put together and then give the document the president says is full of lies to national law enforcement.

He demanded for the second day in a row that Ohr be fired, following a closed-door hearing on Capitol Hill where the government employee was subjected to intense questioning.

The president fumed at Ohr and Sessions in a Wednesday tweet, asking ‘how the hell’ he still has a job.

Trump has repeatedly targeted Ohr, who is also on the administration’s list of officials who may lose their security clearance.

‘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! the president asked in August.
