(Oct. 6, 2020) — On Tuesday morning, The Post & Email contacted the office of U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut media spokesman, Thomas Carson, through its website, to inquire as to any updates on Durham’s investigation into the origins of “Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI and later Special-Counsel probe of alleged improper connections between the 2016 Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
Early last year, Durham was tasked by Attorney General William P. Barr with probing the justification for Crossfire given that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 19-member team of prosecutors could not substantiate the FBI’s assertions that members of the 2016 Trump campaign were “colluding” with Russians to affect the outcome of the election.
