DOJ Official Who Met With Trump Dossier Author Says Goodbye to Another Job Title

Bruce Ohr lost his title as the DOJ associate deputy attorney general last month after it was discovered he had privately met with the author of the anti-Trump dossier, former British spy Christopher Steele. He also reportedly met with Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that hired Steele to compile that now infamous document.

Now, Ohr can say goodbye to another post. Fox News has learned that Ohr will no longer be the director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. 

It turns out his post at OCDETF landed him in another controversy. Ohr appears to have been a key player in the Obama administration's attempts to hamper a DEA effort to stop a drug trafficking campaign waged by Hezbollah. The administration slowed the project, called Project Cassandra, because it got in the way of the president's nuclear deal with Iran, Politico reported.

It's unknown what title Ohr is left with, but a DOJ "insider" joked with Fox News that he may be placd in one of those "offices without a phone."

Ohr is expected to interview with the House Intelligence Committee on Jan. 17.
