Rosenberg said the "first thing" that really "shook" him was when he saw Barr's "mischaracterization" of special counsel Robert Mueller's final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Durham, according to Fox, has beefed up his investigative team with agents as he tries to uncover why and how the DOJ and FBI investigated the Trump campaign.

Fox News reported Tuesday that John Durham, who took office as the us attorney for the District of CT in October 2017, is digging deeper as he investigates what was dubbed operation Crossfire Hurricane within the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Fox News has learned that due to the investigation's findings, the timeline has expanded.

Attorney General Bill Barr and Durham traveled to Italy recently to talk to law enforcement officials there about the probe and have also had conversations with officials in the United Kingdom and Australia about the investigation, according to multiple sources familiar with the meetings.

American politicians may have improperly colluded with foreign nations to influence USA elections.

Durham "is gathering information from numerous sources, including a number of foreign countries".

Durham, known as a "hard-charging, bulldog" prosecutor, according to a source, has been focusing on the use and assignments of Federal Bureau of Investigation informants, as well as alleged improper issuance of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants.

Democrats increasingly have targeted Barr.

President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr arrive at the East Room of the White House on September 9. Mueller was said to have considered taking the post of special counsel only if he was denied a post at the Federal Bureau of Investigation or justice department.
