Attorney General Bill Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation and to determine if the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016 was legal.

The Associated Press reported that a source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Barr “appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry.”

“The inquiry will focus on whether the government’s methods to collect intelligence relating to the Trump campaign were lawful and appropriate,” The AP added. “Durham has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters.”

In April, a Trump administration official told Fox News that Barr had assembled a team to investigate the origins of the FBI the Obama administration’s FBI counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign.

“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016,” Barr said during a congressional hearing in April.

Fox News reported on Monday that multiple sources had told the network 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 includes 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,” Fox News added. “An informant working for U.S. intelligence posed as a Cambridge University research assistant in September 2016 to try to probe George Papadopoulos, then a Trump foreign policy adviser, on the campaign’s possible ties to Russia, it emerged earlier this month. And, Papadopoulos told Fox News, the informant tried to ‘seduce’ him as part of the ‘bizarre’ episode.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) reacted to the news by writing on Twitter: “John Durham is an outstanding choice for special prosecutor investigating 2016 pre-election activities—his selection further demonstrates Bill Barr’s tenacity and determined desire to get to the truth and restore credibility at the top tier of the DOJ and FBI.”

      No, enough of the Democrat shit. They tried a coup and failed. Now they’re disrupting government. It’s time the criminals are revealed and prosecuted appropriately for their crimes. All of them, including the former President if he is involved in the coup. It’s also time to force any corrupt politician out of office, regardless of which political party with which they are affiliated.

      Fran right on. I can not believe that so many Americans are so dumb and blind that they can not see how corrupt Obama and his cabal were. They have been brainwashed so long they can’t think any more.It’s about time the tide is turning and these crooks are being exposed and I hope and pray they end up in prison starting with Obama and Hillary.

      this is why the Democrats through various committees are attacking the President and anybody associated with him. They’re trying to discredit the Trump Administration before the S??T hits the fan pointing that they were the one’s colluding with Russia, and illegal tactics to rig the election.

    I am mad as hell that our department of justice with the FBI and CIA conspired to influence our elections and to get Hillary Clinton elected. These people deserve to be shot or electrocuted or hung by a rope or whatever the hell it takes to prevent this from ever happening again.

    Good! But exposing these crooked traitorous bastards isn’t enough. Each and every single one of them must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. No mercy, no leniency! The corruption has to be expunged from our country completely, and an example must be made of what will happen to anyone who tries to perpetrate anything like this ever again! Thank you, God for President Trump & AG Barr. Protect them and this prosecutor and guide them.

    Good if we can get credibility back where it belongs; unfortunately it still seems like there is a bunch of leaks, which need to be stopped, since if the people know about it, then the crooks do as well, and will try to cover their steps…………UNLESS you are willing to put your name out there, it might be a good idea “to keep your mouth shut”……..
    We the people are tired of hearing about leaks, which over half of the time show up to be only half truths……..

    This prosecutor could “interview” Obama at some point. One of these traitors will likely spill all the beans to save his own skin. Hope this investigator is as tough as Mueller.

    I’m sure they’ll find out that Obama was behind the whole false investigations done by the FBI and the DOJ, in order to get Hillary elected so they could continue their reign of terror against innocent Americans! Obama still thinks and continues to act like he has the power to control the FBI and the Justice System! I could never call him my President! He was always so arrogant!

    Why…….since this “investigation” into Russian meddling began while Obama was still president, was Trump’s campaign the one that got “investigated?” HUH? Care to try to explain that? Before you jump in and try to defend Hillary, Obama or any other liberal…….remember……Trump did not receive any campaign funds from Russia……..Hillary DID.

    I am surprised… very pleasantly, but surprised none the less. I would have thought Barr would have waited for Burr. With all the obvious connections well seen in the Fake Collusion it wasn’t necessary, but none the less… quicker moving than I thought possible.
    So.. Burr report is going to be ‘conciliatory’ is more likely I believe, than accusatory.
    This selection for Special is interesting being he took on the CIA and FBI… illegal interrogations and ‘Whitey Folger’ situations. Interesting because Brennan is center to the Fake Russian data… and Mueller was center to the ‘Folger’ situation and four people getting put n prison who were innocent so Folger could get away with fleeing-(Mueller.. I’m talking about youuuuu).
    The Liberals are going to scream bloody murder about this.
    I look forward to knowing how much resources this Investigator will be assigned and a full scope Letter.

    Where’s Dean Perry??? Silent? Why? Because the cabal which is already exposed (by good journalists and select members of Congress) is now going be investigated by something more than an IG. Hey Dean, why don’t you advise them to flee the country. Who needs them.

    From the top down, that’s where all this BS originated.
    0bama and his muzlim connections
    Biden and his China connections
    Hillary and her Russian connections that the whole thing was intended to cover up and get her elected president, which would have been the end of the USA as we knew it.
    Crooked, conniving cons, one and all.
    Then we have the 22 “who the hell is this?” democrats running for prez? Gays, pedo’s & pervs, azz grabbers, gun grabbers, climate change fanatics, socialists, commies, Indian pretenders, muzlims….none of ’em will make it as Trump’s first term continues.

    I hope Barr doesn’t stop until he gets them all including the totally biased media who has been shielding the illegal activity of the Democrats and promoting the fake scandals created by the deep state.
