Many Americans are questioning the impartiality of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election election.

In the past few weeks, several bombshell reports have exposed top members of Mueller’s team as having a clear bias against President Donald Trump, and now a top official at the Department of Justice is on the chopping block.

According to Fox News, a top Justice Department official was demoted this week as part of an internal investigation into contacts he had with Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm founded by Glenn Simpson that compiled the discredited Trump-Russia dossier.

Leading up to Wednesday morning, Bruce G. Ohr served as an associate deputy attorney general and director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) at the Justice Department.

Fox News reported that Ohr will retain his OCDETF title but has been removed from his higher position and his office as the associate deputy attorney general.

Evidence collected by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), which is chaired by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., reported that Ohr met with Christopher Steele during the 2016 presidential election.

Fusion GPS reportedly paid Steele, a former British spy, to compile the unverified dossier.

The dossier, which was partly funded by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was full of unverified claims, including one that asserted Trump consorted with Russian prostitutes during trips to Moscow years ago.

Clinton’s campaign and the DNC paid nearly $9 million for the discredited dossier.

House investigators have learned that Ohr met with Simpson shortly after the 2016 election, leading many to believe the DOJ and FBI played a role in promoting the dossier as a basis for launching the Russia probe from Mueller.

The House has issued several subpoenas for documents and witnesses related to the dossier but argue the FBI and DOJ are “stonewalling” their efforts to uncover more information on the dossier that was used, in part, to spring Mueller’s investigation.

Ohr is just one of many high ranking officials who have been exposed in recent weeks for having an implicit bias against Trump.

On Tuesday, Andrew Weissman, a top prosecutor currently serving as a deputy to Mueller, praised former acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by Trump for refusing to follow orders on the president’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, Weissmann wrote to Yates in January applauding her decision to defy Trump’s orders.

“I am so proud,” Weissmann wrote in the subject line of the email to Yates. “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”

The email below shows Weissmann praising the idea of defying Trump’s order to protect our nation.

The Jan. 30 email was sent at 9:50 p.m. from Weissmann’s government account, when he still worked for the Justice Department and prior to joining Mueller’s probe.

His email came after it went public that Yates had refused to defend and enact the first version of Trump’s travel ban on individuals traveling to the U.S. from mostly-Muslim nations that are overrun with terrorists.

The explosive report on Weissmann follows another top Mueller investigator being exposed for also having a bias against Trump.

On Monday, Peter Strzok, a former top counterintelligence analyst at the FBI, was fired for sending text messages that mocked Trump. Strzok was removed from Mueller’s probe for exchanging anti-Trump text messages with a colleague.

Following his removal, the Office of Inspector General found that Strzok was the number two official in the counterintelligence division at the FBI that led the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal.

Strzok was also the official who changed former FBI Director James Comey’s earlier draft language describing Clinton’s actions as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”

Changing the language has massive political ramifications, and Strzok was trying to save Clinton from legal backlash over her private email server.

Strzok is also the FBI agent who signed the federal document activating the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

In the past week, we have learned two top officials on Mueller’s team and one in the DOJ have played a major role in pushing investigations forward against Trump.

At this rate, one could question the impartiality of Mueller’s investigation.
