The Mueller report is long out by now, and no matter how much spin the media and Democrats want to put on it, there’s no “collusion” to be squeezed from it. That’s led to a series of calls from conservatives for the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation to be looked at to see just how kosher there were.

Now, they’re getting their wish.

New - York - Times - Associated - Press

According to The New York Times and The Associated Press, Attorney General William Barr has appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to look at the origins of the probe back in 2016 — and all of the concomitant questions that have arisen in the aftermath.

Both outlets cited unidentified sources in their reports.

Powers - Mr - Durham - Mr - Barr

“It is not clear what investigative powers Mr. Durham will have or whether Mr. Barr will authorize a team or budget,” The Washington Times noted.

“Special counsel Robert Mueller had a squad of roughly 20 people to conduct his investigation.”

Move - Weeks - Barr - Testimony - Senate

The move comes less than two weeks after Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the Mueller report. During the testimony, he had said that the “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign.

“I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” Barr told the committee, although he said he didn’t know if there were any violations of law or policy occurred in the process.

Rules - Barr - New - York - Times

“I am not suggesting that those rules were violated, but I think it’s important to look at them,” Barr said, according to The New York Times.
