Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Monday on America's Newsroom that he wants Justice Department official Bruce Ohr to admit that he and his wife were part of a "conspiracy" to create a narrative of wrongdoing by President Trump.

Ohr is expected to testify before Congress on Tuesday about his communication with Trump dossier author and ex-British spy Christopher Steele.

It was revealed earlier this month that Ohr and Steele communicated via email, even after Steele was terminated by the bureau.

Ohr's wife, Nellie, also worked for Fusion GPS, which was hired by Hillary Clinton's campaign to compile the dossier of potentially damaging information against Trump.

Issa labeled Ohr as a partisan operative on Monday and said his testimony could be a "strong opportunity" to reveal information about his conversations with Steele.

He added that if House Republicans don't get the answers they're looking for, charges of contempt could potentially be introduced.

"It's hard not to be frustrated that the attorney general is not more effective in ordering individuals to cooperate," he added.

President Trump tweeted last week that it was a "total joke" that Ohr has yet to be fired from his post, citing Jeff Sessions.

Issa said that he would expect that Ohr be fired and potentially prosecuted.

"I would certainly think that he should be relieved of all authorities and powers until this investigation has been completed at a minimum," he said.
