The Connecticut U.S. attorney assigned by Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia probe is very dialed in and asking all the right questions, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.
Separately, sources within the Justice Department confirmed to Fox News that Barr has met on multiple occasions in recent weeks with Durham, who was in Washington, D.C., this month.
DEMS UNVEIL CONTEMPT RESOLUTION FOR BARR, MCGAHN
Fox News has learned that Durham has been getting briefed on the four corners of the investigations into the FBI's use of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants, among other issues. Barr appointed Durham, 68, last month.
News of Durham's high level of engagement in the probe comes days after Barr said he has not received answers from the intelligence community that were "at all satisfactory" in the early stages of his review into the origins of the Russia investigation.
"In fact probably have more questions, and some of the facts that I've learned don't hang together with the official explanations of what happened," Barr told CBS News in an interview.
Durham is specifically reviewing the FISA warrant obtained by the FBI to surveil former Trump aide Carter Page, as well as general issues relating to surveillance during the 2016 campaign and matters flowing from the FISA process. Fox News is told Durham would handle the prosecution of any criminal action he might uncover.
During the CBS interview, Barr revealed Durham picked up the FISA and surveillance components from Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber, whose work was put on hold pending DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz's findings from his ongoing review. Huber, Barr said, was essentially on standby in case Horowitz referred a matter to him to be handled criminally.
Horowitz's investigation is expected to be completed shortly.

In before some dumbass FReeper whines that this is still not good enough,
Damn good thing that Sessions is gone. I believe he was a deep state plant.
Yes, you actually did get in before the mindless cynics.....AMAZING!
Practically no new news here but I’ll take it ty.
Can hear the Sphincters tightening from here.
Horowitz’s investigation is expected to be completed shortly.
How many hundreds of times have we heard this?
The Dems should be moving on instead of pretending they have something.....cuz this is going to backfire on them....big time. Perhaps even enough to make Nadler have a real blackout.
...and surveillance components from Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber, whose work was put on hold pending DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s findings from his ongoing review. Huber, Barr said, was essentially on standby in case Horowitz referred a matter to him to be handled criminally.
Many Freepers have criticized Huber for ‘doing nothing’.
I don’t think everyone gets the importance and protection that being ‘put on hold’ gave Huber. It’s not like he needed to do any more investigation. By being put on hold, the ‘evidence’ he has stays in his hands. No one can ‘leak’ the info to the media.
Sullying Barr’s name isn’t going to serve the democRats well.
If Trump had talked of Mueller the way the democRats are talking about Barr, they’d have charged obstruction.
It just dawned on me what democRat stands for.
I’d always connected it to Democracy. No stupid, the root word is demolition.
needs to be repeated ... again and again
Not cynical at all, but the only new news in this article seems to be the headline.
I still think Sessions was needed to do exactly what he did. If Trump did something about Mueller to early he would of been screwed.
Huber was a Big Nothing, tasked by a recused AG, answering to a two faced chinless DAG and put on hold for a whitewashing IG.
Number of arrests: 0
Number of indictments: 0
But hey, he’s really “dialed in” and the democrats are nervous and running scared!
