Source says Barr is launching new look at origins of Russia probe

President Donald Trump speaks to members of the media on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, May 14, 2019, before boarding Marine One for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base, Md., to travel to Louisiana. Huber, the USA attorney in Utah, is also examining aspects of the Russian Federation investigation.

"I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal", he said.

"Fox News reported on Monday that Attorney General Bill Barr had assigned John Durham, the USA attorney in CT, to conduct the inquiry into alleged misconduct and alleged improper government surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors", reports Fox News.

In 2017, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions assigned Utah's top federal prosecutor John Huber to review a wide range of issues that Republicans had complained about, from how the FBI handled investigations related to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to questions about the origins of the Russian Federation probe.

Several other media outlets also reported Durham has been tapped to lead the inquiry.

He is clearly a player with a bright future ahead of him and is only nineteen years old. He told Omnisport in March: "Virgil is a player who has experience in the top leagues".

In addition, Barr is personally working with FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to review intelligence gathering techniques used to investigate Trump's 2016 campaign.

"You know what? I am so proud of our attorney general that he is looking into it".

"The investigation had nothing to do with the [Steele] dossier, it frankly had nothing to do with the Trump campaign".

Congressional Republicans have also indicated they intend to examine how the investigation that has shadowed Trump's presidency began and whether there are any legal concerns. He has a history of performing special investigations - in 2008 he was assigned by Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey to conduct a probe of the Central Intelligence Agency over the destruction of videotapes that showed terrorism suspects being tortured. Despite being a Trump appointee, Durham was recommended for the position by Connecticut's Democratic senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy who characterized him as having earned "immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce and fair prosecutor".
