Attorney General William Barr gave the attorney general he appointed to investigate the origins of the Trump investigation and Russia, and gave him the authority of a special advisor to complete the work without being easily fired.
Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he appointed US Attorney General John Durham as special counsel in October under the same federal law that governs Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the original Russia investigation. He said the Durham investigation was narrowing to focus more on the behavior of FBI agents who worked on the Russia investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane.
