Barr's Pick to Investigate Russia Probe is Dialed in
Democrats continue to ramp up their attacks on Attorney General Barr as he inches closer to finding out more about the beginning of the Russia Investigation. His bulldog appointee to do that, John Durhan, has met with Barr multiple times and is reportedly "dialed in."

According to Fox News:

The Connecticut U.S. attorney assigned by Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia probe is “very dialed in” and “asking all the right questions,” according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Separately, sources within the Justice Department confirmed to Fox News that Barr has met “on multiple occasions in recent weeks” with Durham, who was in Washington, D.C., this month.

Fox News has learned that Durham has been getting briefed on the “four corners” of the investigations into the FBI's use of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants, among other issues. Barr appointed Durham, 68, last month.

News of Durham's high level of engagement in the probe comes days after Barr said he has not received answers from the intelligence community that were "at all satisfactory" in the early stages of his review into the origins of the Russia investigation.

Durham is reportedly focused on the FISA warrant obtained by the FBI which allowed them to spy on Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
