Barr Appoints Durham Special Counsel, Meaning The Investigation Of Russiagate Will Continue, Even Under Biden

Attorney General William Barr has made John Durham, the man investigating the origins of the Russia hoax, special counsel.

This means that even if Joe Biden is made president, the investigation would continue.

Biden could fire Durham, but that would be no different than Trump firing Robert Mueller four years ago, and we all know how Democrats and the media would have felt about that.

The Associated Press reports:

Barr appoints special counsel in Russia probe investigation

Attorney General William Barr has given extra protection to the prosecutor he appointed to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, granting him authority to complete the work without being easily fired.

Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he had appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as a special counsel in October under the same federal regulations that governed special counsel Robert Mueller in the original Russia probe. He said Durham’s investigation has been narrowing to focus more on the conduct of FBI agents who worked on the Russia investigation, known by the code name of Crossfire Hurricane.

Under the regulations, a special counsel can be fired only by the attorney general and for specific reasons such as misconduct, dereliction of duty or conflict of interest. An attorney general must document such reasons in writing.

The FBI in July 2016 began investigating whether the Trump campaign was coordinating with Russia to sway the outcome of the presidential election. That probe was inherited nearly a year later by special counsel Mueller, who ultimately did not find enough evidence to charge Trump or any of his associates with conspiring with Russia.
