President Trump speaks out against Mueller probe as Barr assigns investigator

The investigation was launched in response to long-held Republican concerns that the FBI's surveillance of the Trump campaign was politically motivated and relied on dubious opposition research.

Congressional Republicans have also indicated they intend to examine how the investigation that shadowed Trump's presidency for almost two years began and whether there are any legal concerns.

President Trump recently referred to the Russian Federation investigation as one of the biggest hoaxes in USA history. He is reportedly working closely with CIA Director Gina Haspel, National Intelligence Director Daniel Coats, and FBI Director Christopher Wray to uncover the origins of the Mueller probe.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions also appointed Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber to review whether political bias tainted decision making in the Justice Department and FBI in 2016, including with regard to the Page warrant and the investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. He has a history of conducting special investigations under administrations of both parties. Huber, the US attorney in Utah, is also examining aspects of the Russian Federation investigation. "Durham has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of Central Intelligence Agency videotapes and the Boston FBI office's relationship with mobsters". "It's a waste of his talent", Blumenthal said.
