John Durham probe goes worldwide to examine spies and their Trump targets
The Justice Department provided a statement from chief spokeswoman Kerri Kupec: “As the Department of Justice has previously announced, a team led by U.S. Attorney John Durham is investigating the origins of the U.S. counterintelligence probe of the Trump 2016 presidential campaign. Mr. Durham is gathering information from numerous sources, including a number of foreign countries. At Attorney General Barr’s request, the president has contacted other countries to ask them to introduce the attorney general and Mr. Durham to appropriate officials.”

Attorney General William Barr’s ongoing inquiry into the origins of the Trump-Russia saga is taking investigators to Australia, Ukraine, Italy and the United Kingdom to examine spies and their Trump targets.

Liberal media have ramped up attacks on Mr. Barr for his probe, which is looking at Democrats — that is, how the Barack Obama administration started an investigation in 2016 into the opposing campaign of Republican Donald Trump.

Some news articles have called it an investigation into the 22-month Robert Mueller investigation that essentially cleared Mr. Trump and his allies of colluding in Russian election interference.

But Mr. Barr’s investigators aren’t focusing on what Mr. Mueller did. They are zeroing-in on what happened before Mr. Mueller’s May 2017 appointment as special counsel.

Mr. Barr appointed John Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, to look at something Mr. Mueller ignored: How extensive was FBI spying on the Trump campaign, was it justified and what help did Hillary Clinton’s people obtain from foreign governments?
