President Trump recently referred to the Russian Federation investigation as one of the biggest hoaxes in US history.

Durham, US attorney in CT, has been tapped by Barr to examine special counsel Robert Mueller's probe's inception, the New York Times reported, citing two people familiar with the matter.

A redacted version of his final report, released in mid-April, documented numerous contacts between Trump's campaign and Russian officials, but found insufficient evidence to substantiate a conspiracy between the campaign and Moscow. According to reports, Barr has begun a multi-agency investigation into possible surveillance on the Trump campaign. He later acknowledged that there was no evidence of Federal Bureau of Investigation wrongdoing. "I saw it last night".

"That is not the term I would use", he said at a Senate hearing.

President Trump nominated Durham, a Department of Justice attorney since 1982, to be the U.S. Attorney in CT in 2017.

Durham, the USA attorney in CT, has been tapped by the nation's chief law enforcement officer to dig into the probe's inception, The New York Times reported Monday night, citing two individuals familiar with the matter.
