Donald Trump Praises Bill Barr for Investigating Russia 'Hoax' Origin

Donald Trump Praises Bill Barr for Investigating Russia 'Hoax' Origin”

"I saw it last night".

"There are lots of people who have different colloquial phrases", Wray said.

During an interview with CNN's John Berman, Clapper was asked if the investigation is "warranted" now that the attorney general has assigned U.S. Attorney John Durham for the job.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters Tuesday that his panel would postpone plans to probe the origins of the Russian Federation investigation now that Durham had been appointed.

Rep. Steve Scalise believes that William Barr's appointment of a USA attorney to investigate the origins of the Russian Federation probe proves that the attorney general is getting ready to hit the Federal Bureau of Investigation hard.

Barr first confirmed publicly before Congress on April 9 that he was launching a separate investigation from the ongoing Justice Department inspector general probe into whether there was any improper or unauthorized surveillance of members of the Trump campaign prior to Trump's inauguration.

Wray said he had not seen any evidence that illegal surveillance was conducted on individuals associated with Trump's campaign.

Since the early days of his presidency, Trump, along with several of his Republican allies in Congress, has raised suspicions of a "deep state" conspiracy to undermine his electoral victory, and made open calls for the prosecution of intelligence officials involved in the early stages of the Russian Federation investigation.

"I didn't know it, but I think it's a great thing that he did it", he said.

Clapper went on to say "we're kind of losing sight" of the fact that the investigation was caused by Russia's interfere with American political institutions and their attempts to engage with President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

Barr appointed John Durham, the USA attorney in CT, to conduct the inquiry, the person said.

Trump selected him to be the USA attorney in CT, and he was confirmed by the Senate in 2018.

One of them said Huber has been focused mostly on matters related to 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The attorney-general has been accused of pandering to repeated claims by Mr Trump that his predecessor had a spy illegally placed into his campaign and that the Mueller investigation was politically motivated.

Trump appeared to take another swipe at Wray earlier this week on Twitter.
