It was revealed Tuesday that Barr is working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats and FBI Director Christopher Wray on surveillance issues related to Trump’s 2016 campaign.
This suggests a broader inter-agency effort is underway.
Fox News also learned that John Durham is working directly with Inspector General Michael Horowitz on looking at the FISA abuses.
IG Horowitz is in the final stages of his investigation into the FISA abuses that took place during the 2016 election and is reportedly close to releasing his final report.
Obama’s corrupt FBI/DOJ used Hillary’s phony Russia dossier to obtain a FISA warrant and three subsequent renewals on Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
The first FISA warrant on Carter Page was granted in October of 2016, just weeks before Election Day and the 4th and final warrant was granted in June of 2017 — then-DAG Rosenstein and FBI Deputy McCabe both signed the June 2017 FISA warrant on Page, one month after Mueller was appointed as special counsel.
It is widely believed that there were also FISA warrants on General Mike Flynn, Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort and Trump camp foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos, however that has not been publicly confirmed.
