HAPPENING NOW: Trump Supporters React to Barr Investigating the Investigators!

Attorney General William Barr announced that he’s assigned a special prosecutor to look into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Russia probe.

The Seattle Times reported that 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.

Trump supporters took to Twitter to respond to the good news.

“Raise your hand if you are ready for US Attorney John Durham to go full honey badger on the people who started the Trump investigation”

“John Durham is an outstanding choice for special prosecutor investigating 2016 pre-election activities—his selection further demonstrates Bill Barr’s tenacity and determined desire to get to the truth and restore credibility at the top tier of the DOJ and FBI.”

“BREAKING: Attorney General Barr assigned top federal prosecutor, John Durham, to examine the origins of the Russia investigation.

“BREAKING This is John Durham.

“I hope this John Durham from Conn. is the pitbull that will expose everything he finds and that the DOJ will Prosecute the fullest extent of each and every charge. Time needs to be served, lives need to be changed, Americans need to be avenged for this Liberal Coup!”

“The wheels of Justice are starting to turn.
