Barr Assigns Federal Prosecutor to Investigate Russia Probe Origins

969SHARES

Attorney General William Barr has just assigned a federal prosecutor to investigate the origins of the Trump / Russia probe, The New York Times is reporting.

Attorney General William P. Barr has assigned the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut to examine the origins of the Russia investigation, according to two people familiar with the matter, a move that President Trump has long called for but that could anger law enforcement officials who insist that scrutiny of the Trump campaign was lawful.

John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, has a history of serving as a special prosecutor investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials, including the F.B.I.’s ties to a crime boss in Boston and accusations of C.I.A. abuses of detainees.

His inquiry is the third known investigation focused on the opening of an F.B.I. counterintelligence investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign into possible ties between Russia’s election interference and Trump associates.

“NEW: Barr has asked the US attorney in CT, John Durham, to examine the origins of the Russia investigation. Sure to please Trump but not current and former FBI officials who have defended their handling of investigation.”

“BREAKING: The AP reports that Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and to determine if the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate.”
