Attorney General urged not to interfere with Durham investigation by senators


By United States Department of Justice

There is a strong push from 46 senators to not interfere with Special Counsel John Durham's investigation into the origins of the counterintelligence probe of Donald Trump's campaign.


Former President Trump's investigation into the investigation, which was riddled with errors, is currently being investigated by Durham. As a result of the investigation, a former FBI lawyer pleaded guilty to interfering with a key email relating to a former Trump campaign associate and former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman faced charges.


The majority of Senators in the upper chamber of Congress wrote to Garland on Feb. 16 asking him to respect Durham's independence and to provide him with all the resources he needs as he continues to work on the Durham issue.


Durham's investigation into the origins of the FBI probe into Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election continues to uncover alarming information. Senators found that fabricated evidence had been fabricated by those closely connected with a rival political campaign in order to target American citizens, including the candidate for president," they wrote.
