US Attorney John Durham is expanding his probe into the origins of the Russia investigation and turning his sights on the Clinton Foundation, according to a report on Thursday.
Durham, who was named by Attorney General William Barr to investigate “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s operation to examine any ties between the Russians and President Trump’s 2016 campaign, will incorporate US Attorney John Huber’s examination of the foundation into his review, Fox News reported.
Huber was directed by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in November 2017 to evaluate “certain issues” involving the sale of Uranium One and other dealings connected to the Clinton Foundation, the charity operated by Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Sessions tapped Huber at the request of Republicans in Congress.
Huber, the US attorney for Utah, had also been looking into the FBI’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and allegations that the agency did not follow “policies and procedures.”
The progress of Huber’s investigation has come under scrutiny from the Justice Department and the White House, Fox News reported.
“There are folks that are aware of the fact that Huber has not done much, and there has been criticism at the Justice Department and the White House,” a source told Fox News. “Folks that have been concerned about what he did or didn’t do, and many of them feel that Huber did not dig deep enough or work hard enough.”
The New York Times first reported on Thursday that Durham has sought documents and interviews about how federal law enforcement officials conducted an investigation into allegations of political corruption at the foundation.
The newspaper’s report said members of Durham’s team suggested that they were comparing the two probes and whether investigators in the Russia investigation violated any policies.
It said it was unclear if Durham’s people were looking to uncover similar violations in the foundation probe.
Durham was named to mount up his investigation shortly after then-special counsel Robert Mueller completed his examination of Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether there was any “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
Durham “does not want this to be viewed political,” the source told Fox News, and could “punt it to after the election.”
“The Clinton Foundation has regularly been subjected to baseless, politically motivated allegations, and time after time these allegations have been proven false,” the foundation said in a statement to the Times.
