Barr is skeptical of the timeline of events the FBI and CIA are using to explain the leadup to the Trump campaign investigation known as Crossfire Hurricane.
John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, is using additional agents and resources as part of the inquiry, which is also looking at the activities of foreign intelligence agencies.
Senior administration officials told Fox News’s Bret Baier that Durham has expanded the investigation because of information he has obtained in the probe.
However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.
Attorney General William Barr appointed Durham to oversee the inquiry shortly after the end of the special counsel’s investigation, which said there was no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government.
