Attorney General Bill Barr has picked U.S. Attorney John H. Durham of Connecticut to look into the origin of the deep state spying operation on President Donald Trump in the build-up to the Robert Mueller probe and determine whether it was lawfully committed.
The liberal fake news media is already freaking out that accountability is at hand, using the announcement to fuel their conspiracy theories even further:

It will be difficult for Democrats to impugn the reputation of Durham, who has an unblemished record of public service going back decades.
Sens. Dick ‘Da Nang’ Blumenthal (D-CT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) even wrote a gushing endorsement of Durham after Trump nominated him as a U.S. attorney in 2017.
“John Durham has earned immense respect as a no-nonsense, fierce and fair prosecutor, and we are pleased that the White House has agreed with our recommendation that he serve as United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut,” Blumenthal and Murphy said.
The left-wing, anti-Trump officials talked about Durham’s exemplary record and praised him effusively.
“As an Assistant United States Attorney, John Durham has proven himself time and time again in some of the most challenging and sensitive cases,” they said.
In their press release, Blumenthal and Murphy advertised Durham’s record of qualifications including his work “on the U.S. Department of Justice’s Boston Strike Force on Organized Crime, where he led the high-profile prosecution of former Supervisory FBI Special Agency John J. Connolly and mob bosses James “Whitey” Bulger, and Stephen “the Rifleman” Flemmi.”
In his role uncovering the origins of the Russian collusion investigation, Durham will be scrutinizing many Obama-era Department of Justice officials including former Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and former Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok.
It is clear that Durham is more than qualified for the task at hand, and the shrieking Democrats are only scared of what he might uncover.
