United States Attorney Bill Bar has already assigned US Attorney John Durham to look into and investigate the government surveillance of the Trump campaign, regarding the origins of the Russia investigation. Furthermore, Fox News reported that the position was assigned, as to determine if intelligence collection efforts that targeted the Trump campaign were in fact “lawful and appropriate”!
Fox News added that…
John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, will conduct the inquiry, the source said. The move comes as the Trump administration has pushed for answers on why federal authorities conducted the surveillance — as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors.
Two sources told Fox News earlier today that Barr was “serious” and had assigned DOJ personnel to the probe. Durham is known as a “hard-charging, bulldog” prosecutor, Fox News is told.
Sources familiar with matter say the focus of the probe includes the pre-transition period — prior to Nov. 7, 2016 — including the use and initiation of informants, as well as potential Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) abuses.
An informant working for U.S. intelligence posed as a Cambridge University research assistant in September 2016 to try extracting any possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia from George Papadopoulos, then a Trump foreign policy adviser, it emerged earlier this month. Papadopoulos told Fox News the informant tried to “seduce” him as part of the “bizarre” episode.
Durham previously has investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters. He is set to continue to serve as the chief federal prosecutor in Connecticut.

In January, House Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows wrote to Durham seeking a briefing, saying they had “discovered” that Durham’s office was “investigating [former FBI General Counsel James Baker” for unauthorized disclosures to the media.”
Durham’s new review would exist alongside the ongoing probe by DOJ Inspector General (IG) Michael Horowitz, who is continuing to review potential surveillance abuses by the FBI — an investigation that began last March and that Fox News is told is nearing completion.
Also, according to CNN’s DOJ reporter Laura Jarrett, Barr is working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats and FBI Director Christopher Wray on surveillance issues related to Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Now, hysteria is spreading throughout the left, as Techno Fog reported that Durham uncovered evidence the FBI FRAMED innocent men for murder and brought the FBI office to justice…
Also, John Yoo, who is the Deputy Assistant US Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel told Laura Ingraham that Democrats should be quite worried. Meanwhile, Deep State hacks like former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who served under Barack Obama expressed his nervousness, as he went on CNN to discuss the new investigation that is likely to target himself! In fact, according to Mediaite James Clapper said…
“There is a substantial investigation, which as I understand it, is nearing completion, being conducted by the Justice Department Inspector General,” Clapper said. “I’d wait for the outcome of that to determine if there needs to be more investigations.”
Clapper went on to say “we’re kind of losing sight” of the fact that the investigation was caused by Russia’s interfere with American political institutions and their attempts to engage with President Donald Trump‘s 2016 campaign. Clapper said that the focus at the time was in figuring out what the Russians were doing, but now, “the message I almost take away from this is, ‘well, we should have ignored that.’”
Ironically, Clapper attacked Bill Barr’s investigation into spying as “stunning and scary“, only to admit last week that spying did occur! Furthermore, Clapper accused Bill Barr this past week of playing politics, for daring to follow leads and enforce the law!
Now, as panic is beginning to set in across Washington and the nation for the left, Attorney General Bill Barr has announced that he is broadening and expanding the probe to an Inter-Agency Effort, as Durham will be working with the CIA Chief Haspel, DNI Coats and FBI Boss Wray on the Spygate Probe!
Thehe left-wing Mainstream Media propaganda machine has openly voiced their condemnation of an investigation of Democrats or the Deep State, as they try to throw cover for their Marxist Elitists and agenda!
addition to Clapper, the CIA Chief John Brennan, and FBI Director James Comey appeared to be at risk, as they were involved in promoting the phony, Hillary-funded dossier and passed it around the various intelligence agencies and then appear to have continually and slowly leaked classified information to the press as a means to smear the candidate Donald J. Trump, his Administration, and anyone who worked for him!
CNN’s Laura Jarrett also reported that John Durham, who is the US Attorney tapped by Barr to investigate Spygate, will be working with Barr on a
“360-degree review of the situation.”
Also, Jarrett reported that Huber has…
“been in a holding pattern as the DOJ IG completes review of the situation surrounding Carter Page surveillance warrant, his work on Clinton wrapping soon.”
As a result, the Democrats, as well as their Mainstream Media propaganda machine are panicking and viciously attacking Barr, in an attempt to smear and taint the reputation of the man who is likely to expose their Deep State corrupt, unconstitutional, and illicit activities! This is why they are viciously attacking Attorney Barr, as they have lost control of the Trump/Russia narrative, and as it has become apparent that the Attorney General is following the bread crumbs, no matter where they lead, and it looks to fall in the lap of Democrats, the Obama Administration, and the left-wing Mainstream Media! After all, they appear to have a great deal to fear, since it seems that the Attorney General Bill Barr is going by the ‘rule of law’!
Now, regardless of the fact that with four different investigations, no collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice has been proven or even slightly indicated by any one of them! As a result, since House Dems cannot get the President on collusion with Russia or obstruction of justice regarding the Mueller probe, they are now pushing the new narrative that President Trump has obstructed their House investigation! After all, they need the President out of the way, and they need a distraction to keep Americans and investigators focus off of the Democrats and their crooked Marxist allies!
For example, Democrats are scared, because as the Fox News discovered, an internal FBI text message obtained by Fox News showed that a senior DOJ official raised concerns about the bias in a key FISA warrant, but the FBI continued to spy on, or surveil as Democrats like to call it, on the Trump campaign and Administration!
Also, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said…
“There really is no verification, other than media reports that were generated by reporters that received the dossier.”
On Fox News, Graham went on to point out John Solomon of the Hill that the FBI was expressly told that Steele, the bureau’s confidential informant, had admitted to a contact at the State Department that he was “keen” to leak his discredited dossier for purposes of influencing the 2016 election.
Sadly, the Democrats and their Mainstream Media allies have decided that the ends justify the means, as they try to fundamentally transform our nation into a nation of Marxism! Therefore, they have abandoned all truth, all morals, and the American people as a whole!
