According to a report from The New York Times, John Durham, the federal prosecutor reviewing the FBI’s Russia investigation for Attorney General William Barr, has sought information about the bureau’s handling of the Clinton Foundation investigation.
The New York Times on Thursday first reported that John Durham has focused attention on the Clintons, and said that Durham has sought documents and interviews about how federal law enforcement officials handled an investigation into allegations of political corruption at the Clinton Foundation.
John Durham was tapped by AG William Barr last year to examine the origins of the FBI’s 2016 investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign, but on Thursday’s report from the New York Times, they suggest the scope of Mr. Durham’s investigation is much broader.
According to the Times, Durham’s team suggested that they’re looking at whether the investigators in the Russia probe flouted laws or policies — and that they were comparing the FBI Russia probe to the Clinton Foundation investigation.
The Times noted that it’s unclear if Durham’s team was looking for similar violations in the FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation. The newspaper also said it was not clear whether the comparison between the two FBI investigations would weigh into the outcome of Durham’s inquiry for Barr.
Former law enforcement officials declined to discuss the Clinton Foundation investigation with Durham’s team because they said they viewed it as highly unusual, according to the Times. A spokesman for John Durham also declined to comment on the New York Times report.
