Barr assigns U.S. attorney in Connecticut to look into government surveillance involving Trump campaign - source

Barr assigns U.S. attorney in Connecticut to look into government surveillance involving Trump campaign - source | 13 May 2019 | Attorney General William Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if intelligence collection efforts targeting the Trump campaign were "lawful and appropriate," a person familiar with the situation told Fox News on Monday evening. John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, will conduct the inquiry, the source said. The move comes as the Trump administration has pushed for answers on why federal authorities conducted the surveillance -- as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors. Two sources told Fox News earlier today that Barr was “serious” and had assigned DOJ personnel to the probe.
