Barr taps U.S. attorney in Connecticut to investigate origins of Russia probe

U.S. Attorney General William Barr is working with top intelligence officials and a senior federal prosecutor on at least the third inquiry to date into the origins of the Mueller probe of President Donald Trump and Russian election meddling, a person familiar with the matter said on Tuesday. According to the document, the investigation did not find any evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign team.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) told CBN News that Barr "wants to know if the spying that was done on the Trump campaign had a proper predicate", adding, "I think a lot of Democrats are very anxious about what that probe is going to turn up". 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.

The president commented on the news as he left the White House for a trip to Louisiana.

Both the inspector general's investigation and the inquiry being conducted by Huber are winding down, the person familiar with the inquiries said.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions also appointed Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber to review whether political bias tainted decision making in the Justice Department and FBI in 2016, including with regard to the Page warrant and the investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. "Durham has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of Central Intelligence Agency videotapes and the Boston FBI office's relationship with mobsters".

Durham was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2018.
