AG Bill Barr Appoints U.S. Attorney John Durham to Review Origin of Russia Investigat

The appointment looks like a way to keep the sensitive inquiry within Barr’s control as opposed to appointing a special counsel.  John H Durham, the U.S. attorney from Connecticut, has handled previous investigations into the intelligence community.

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.

The department’s 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 enforcement’s 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.

This guy can gather up all the information that others have compiled and bring it before a Grand Jury. Congress cant' do it, neither can the Inspector General.  All Congress and the IG have the power to do is to investigate and make criminal referrals to the DOJ.  AG Barr has appointed this US Attorney to do what those others have no prosecutor power to do.

this probably shines a bit of light onto what the Attorney General meant when he told Congress that "Spying on the Trump Campaign did occur" and that he's been having his people look into this.  He has previously been appointed by Eric Holder and Janet Reno, to look into matters involving Federal Government employees.

I'm all for it.  Let everybody investigate everything that anybody thinks is worth investigating.  And let the reports be made public, redacting only that which should be redacted to protect the privacy of non-public figures. 

The only possible reason I can think of for Der Fuhrer to claim executive privilege over the full Mueller report is he and his toads must be afraid his "total and complete exoneration" might be neither. What do others think?

The clock is running out fast now that John Durham is on the job.  Who's going under the bus first?  Who will be arrest first?    Grin Grin Grin Grin  He has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes, and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters.  (TICK TOCK)
