President Trump on Friday said he is prepared to revoke the security clearance of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, who has come under fire from the president for his role in the Russia probe.
Asked if he will take away Ohr’s clearance, Trump said he expects to do so “very quickly” while calling Ohr a “disgrace.”
The president spoke to reporters on the South Lawn before leaving the White House for New York.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I think Bruce Ohr is a disgrace. I suspect I’ll be taking it away very quickly, Trump told reporters on the South Lawn before leaving the White House for New York. “For him to be in the Justice Department and doing what he did, that is a disgrace.”
His comments come two days after he revoked former CIA’s Director John Brennan’s security clearance, a move he said was connected to his role in the Russia probe.
“Let him write his report. We did nothing, there’s no collusion.”
