Trump Supporters CHEER ON Bill Barr’s Investigation!


US Attorney General Bill Barr announced recently that he has appointed a special prosecutor, US attorney John Durham from Connecticut, to take a deeper look into the handling of the Russia investigation, specifically by the Department of Justice and the FBI.

John Durham has been appointed to examine and investigate the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into supposed Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Barr, after making his pick public, confirmed that Durham’s job is to ensure that the US Government collected intelligence during the 2016 campaign in a “lawful and appropriate” manner.

John Durham became a US attorney in February of 2018, and is described by many as tireless and fair.

He has earned a strong reputation as a dogged career prosecutor, and has been previously tapped by past attorneys general for other extremely important cases and roles.

According to the Seattle Times:

Attorney General William Barr has chosen John Durham, the U.S. attorney for the District of Connecticut, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Barr picked Durham in recent weeks to work on the review, which is designed to ensure that the U.S. government’s “intelligence collection activities” related to the Trump campaign were “lawful and appropriate,” a person familiar with the decision said.

Barr had confirmed the review publicly, though the person leading it was not previously known. Durham’s selection was first reported by The New York Times.

Durham was confirmed as a U.S. attorney in February 2018 and had previously earned a reputation as a dogged career prosecutor tapped by previous attorneys general for other high-profile roles.

In 1999, Attorney General Janet Reno appointed Durham to investigate law enforcement corruption in Boston, and more recently, Attorney General Eric Holder called on him to investigate the treatment of CIA detainees and the destruction of videotapes.

Many Trump supporters took to Twitter to praise the recent news, including Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC):
