HeadlineMay 14, 2019

The New York Times is reporting Attorney General William Barr has assigned federal prosecutor John Durham in Connecticut to look into the origins of the FBI’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election. Barr has referred to the FBI’s court-authorized activities as “spying” during congressional testimony, raising alarm among Democrats who have accused Barr of acting as Trump’s personal attorney in the wake of his handling of the Mueller report. Two other investigations into the Russia probe are ongoing.
