(Gateway Pundit) – Attorney General Bill Barr assigned top special prosecutor John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia probe.
John Durham, a US Attorney in Connecticut will examine the origins of Spygate according to a new report by The New York Times, citing two sources familiar with the matter.
Mr. Durham, who was nominated by President Trump in 2017, has a history of investigating potential wrongdoing among National Security officials, reported the NY Times.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz is also investigating FISA abuses in a separate probe.
Bill Barr stunned the Democrat-media complex last month when he said “spying did occur” during the 2016 presidential election and vowed to get to the bottom of it.
“The question is whether it was adequately predicated. And I’m not suggesting that it wasn’t adequately predicated. But I need to explore that,” Barr said.
Barr opted to give a US Attorney the assignment rather than allow a special counsel to look into the origins of Spygate – a special prosecutor has more day-to-day oversight.
Obama and Hillary used the might of the US government and targeted the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
The FBI opened a series of illegal CI investigations into Trump officials and sent spies to various campaign volunteers such as George Papadopoulos and Michael Caputo.
Obama’s FBI and DOJ also obtained a FISA warrant and 3 subsequent renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page – Hillary’s phony dossier was used by the FBI to spy on Carter Page.
It is widely believed the FBI also had a FISA warrant on George Papadopoulos over his work in the energy business with Israel.
This is precisely why the Democrats are attacking Bill Barr – House Democrats just voted to hold Bill Barr in contempt.
