John Durham Expands Investigation Into Trump Campaign Surveillance
For four months, federal prosecutor John Durham has painstakingly investigated law enforcement and intelligence officials who surveilled Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Now, he's expanding his inquiry.

The Daily Caller's Chuck Ross reports:
 

John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, is using additional agents and resources as part of the inquiry, which is also looking at the activities of foreign intelligence agencies.

Senior administration officials told Fox News's Bret Baier that Durham has expanded the investigation because of information he has obtained in the probe.

Durham is particularly focused on FBI and CIA activities, as well as those of other foreign governments, including the U.K., Australia, Italy and Ukraine.

On Sept. 25, the Justice Department revealed that Durham is also looking into whether the Ukrainian government in 2016 meddled in the U.S. presidential campaign. Ukrainian embassy officials worked with a DNC operative to gather dirt on Clinton campaign chairman Paul Manafort.


Durham, 69, built his reputation by taking down the Boston mob led by James "Whitey" Bulger.

He is highly regarded on both sides of the political aisle. The Obama administration tapped him in 2009 to investigate the legality of enhanced interrogation techniques.
