Barr Tabs Special Prosecutor to Look Into Origins of Russia Hoax

AG William Barr appoints top prosecutor to investigate how the Russia investigation started

Attorney General William Barr has reportedly assigned a federal prosecutor in CT to evaluate the origins of the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Huber is expected to complete his review of the Clinton matters in the coming weeks and has handed off everything related to spying on the Trump campaign to Durham, the person said.

"I became President of the United States in one of the most hard fought and consequential elections in the history of our great nation", Pres. Trump wrote. He is reportedly working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, National Intelligence Director Daniel Coats, and FBI Director Christopher Wray to uncover the origins of the Mueller probe.

In 2008, President George W. Bush's Attorney General Michael Mukasey tapped Durham to lead the investigation into the treatment of Central Intelligence Agency detainees and the destruction of videotapes showing the torture of terrorism suspects.

"I am so proud of our attorney general that he is looking into it", Trump said, "I think it's great". The agency's watchdog is also examining the Russian Federation probe's origins and Barr has said he expects the watchdog report to be done in May or June.

The president commented on the news as he left the White House for a trip to Louisiana. "An informant working for US intelligence posed as a Cambridge University research assistant in September 2016 to try to probe George Papadopoulos, then a Trump foreign policy adviser, on the campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation, it emerged earlier this month". Huber, the United States attorney in Utah, is also examining aspects of the investigation, the Times reported.

Tyrion even points that out to her early on when she refuses to even think about sparing the innocent in King's Landing. But she downplayed the error, saying, "If that's the worst thing they're finding, then we're in good shape".

Both the inspector general's investigation and the inquiry being conducted by Huber are winding down, the person familiar with the inquiries said. He was unanimously confirmed by the Senate on a voice vote in early 2018.

Durham is a career prosecutor who was nominated for his post as USA attorney in CT by Trump. 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".
