Skip to comments.Barr Assigns U.S. Attorney in Connecticut to Review Origins of Russia Inquiry
Posted on 05/13/2019 5:21:42 PM PDT by springwater13
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 Russias election interference and Trump associates.
The departments inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, is separately examining investigators use of wiretap applications and informants and whether any political bias against Mr. Trump influenced investigative decisions. And John W. Huber, the United States attorney in Utah, has been reviewing aspects of the Russia investigation. His findings have not been announced.
Additionally on Capitol Hill, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said he, too, intends to review aspects of law enforcements work in the coming months. And Republicans conducted their own inquiries when they controlled the House, including publicizing details of the F.B.I.s wiretap use.

NY Times sounds concerned.
Yeah, it could send them to prison. I might be angry too. Can't have that...
Now they need early morning raids, email and wire taps, etc. etc. Give them the Michael Cohen and Roger Stone treatment. All of them.
....anger law enforcement officials who insist that scrutiny of the Trump campaign was lawful.
Im a retired law enforcement official and Im not angry and Based on what I know, this investigation was definitely not lawful.
I don’t believe ANY OF THOSE BADTARD will walk the line!! No gulag, no prison, no gitmo noooo nothing! I’ve lost faith that anyone or Barr will rain justice on these POS!..just don’t believe no more!
This is good news. BTW, what happened to that Huber guy whom Sessions appointed out in Utah to look into certain aspects of this? Is this a reaction by Barr to the fact that as yet, Huber has produced nothing of a public nature?
Why do I feel Nothing will Happen!
cause Ct is involved fer sure
If they’re innocent what do they care. That’s what police say. So they should be happy this will just exonerate them. Just like they said Trump should be happy to clear the air about Russia collusion.
The departments inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz,.....
And John W. Huber, the United States attorney in Utah,
Additionally on Capitol Hill, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina
Sure takes a lot of Bush League Republicans to cover for Democrats.
Please, God, make it be Joe diGenova.
I hope there will be a great reckoning.
Our Enemy Media has themselves SO twisted up in KNOTS that they are ALL in Panic Mode!
We The People KNOW they have lied about President Trump and this WITCH HUNT on a DAILY basis for the past nearly THREE YEARS!
They are now, OFFICALLY, in, ‘Damage Control Mode.’
Expect more back-pedaling and soft-soaping of the DISGUSTING Socialist Democrat Party and their Wingmen, Never-Trumpers and RINOs across the land!
P.S. I LOVE IT! DRAIN THE SWAMP! PERP-WALKS ALL AROUND! MAGA! :)
I’m with you...
Hopefully not off topic. What ever happened to the U.S. Attorney from Utah or Arizona that was investigation matters Mueller a few months ago. Hope we hear more from this guy in Ct. than we did from this other fellow.
Or as Comey called it....court ordered surveillance.
