Barr appoints special counsel in spygate probe

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attor­ney Gen­er­al William Barr has giv­en extra pro­tec­tion to the pros­e­cu­tor he appoint­ed to inves­ti­gate the ori­gins of the Trump-Rus­sia probe, giv­ing him the author­i­ty of a spe­cial coun­sel to com­plete the work with­out being eas­i­ly fired.

Barr told The Asso­ci­at­ed Press on Tues­day that he had appoint­ed U.S. Attor­ney John Durham as a spe­cial coun­sel in Octo­ber under the same fed­er­al statute that gov­erned spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller in the orig­i­nal Rus­sia probe. He said Durham’s inves­ti­ga­tion has been nar­row­ing to focus more on the con­duct of FBI agents who worked on the Rus­sia inves­ti­ga­tion, known as Cross­fire Hurricane.
