A review launched by Attorney General William Barr into the origins of the Russia investigation has expanded significantly amid concerns about whether the probe has any legal or factual basis, multiple current and former officials told NBC News.
The prosecutor conducting the review, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expressed his intent to interview a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russias effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, Brennan told NBC News.
Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russias activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.
With Barrs approval, Durham has expanded his staff and the timeframe under scrutiny, according to a law enforcement official directly familiar with the matter.

My take too. It seems they are scared.
Video chat you can examine anything the CIA does. The attorney general has that power
That would then, apparently, be NBC News's "concern"?
Bingo! The are a little “concerned” as one connotation of the word would have it.
The USAG is only allowed to investigate Republicans.
He must never investigate Democrats.
It’s in the Constitution.
Doj can examine. Freaking voice to text again
So muller was free to expand his probe far and wide, but suddenly scope of investigation matters very much.
do you suppose the AG’s people advised the perps to lawyer up??? If so it sounds encouraging for our side!
Unlike the Mueller investigation there are no leaks.
Is this when things begin to change back?
They are freaking out as Barr is starting to close the loop.
Theyre nervous because theyre too many moles and leftists that inhabit doj and the police state agencies.
The coup plotters know that an indictment means life in prison or death. So barr knows that if the coup plotters believe that they will be indicted, the plotters will not go down w/o a fight and use any remaining assets they have.
But this all stems from creating these monster federal agencies and investing too much power in them where they can realistically seize power. The « seven ways to Sunday » comment by Schumer is a pathetic but correct assessment of our corrupt federal government.
There’s no budget in the MSM’s coffers for leaks that could result in their own indictments.
This is the 4th fake news article today, apparently the DNC got the talking points memo out this morning.
Notice when its ANYONE concerning a Democrat, the commie media will say “With no factual evidence” but when its a Republican accused its “EVIDENCE SHOWS”
“...amid concerns about whether the probe has any legal or factual basis, multiple current and former officials told NBC News.”
Ohhh there they are again, “multiple current and former officials”. I guess we better take notice if they think this is a no-no. Sarc.
Remember the Jurassic Park scene where they dont see the TRex yet, only the vibrations in the puddle. NBC news seems to be having one of those moments.
