Barr working with intel chiefs on Russia review

Wray said last week that he did not consider court-approved Federal Bureau of Investigation surveillance to be "spying" and said he had no evidence the Federal Bureau of Investigation illegally monitored Trump's campaign.

That comment landed Wray in hot water with Trump, who lashed out when asked about it by reporters on Tuesday.

President Trump recently referred to the Russian Federation investigation as one of the biggest hoaxes in US history. "Former FBI counsel Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was romantically involved, revealed during a closed-door congressional interview that the FBI "knew so little" about whether allegations against the Trump campaign were "true or not true, ' at the time that they opened the probe, noting that they had just 'a paucity of evidence because we are just starting down the path" of vetting the allegations", adds the report. I am not suggesting those rules were violated, but I think it is important to look at that.

Durham was first appointed as a special prosecutor by President Bill Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno in 1999 to investigate law enforcement corruption in Boston centered around the F.B.I.'s treatment of notorious mobster James "Whitey" Bulger.

Valencia vs Arsenal: Livescore from Europa League semi-final [Second Leg]
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery gave his players the day off on return from their Europa League semi-final success in Valencia. The only blot on his outing was the glaring late miss that cost him a hat-trick. "My team-mates knew I was in contention.

Barr tapped John Durham, the U.S. attorney in CT, to lead the inquiry, but Barr remains directly involved in the investigation, which he initiated about three weeks ago, according to a person familiar with the matter. The agency's watchdog is also examining the Russian Federation probe's origins and Barr has said he expects the watchdog report to be done in May or June.

The Justice Department's inspector general is expected in the coming weeks to complete a probe into whether any abuses were committed when the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtained a secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

President Trump nominated Durham for his current post a year ago and the Senate unanimously confirmed him. Despite being a Trump appointee, Durham was recommended for the position by Connecticut's Democratic senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy who characterized him as having earned "immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce and fair prosecutor".

Durham was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2018.
