William Barr Appoints Trump Nominated Prosecutor To Investigate Investigators

Trump's personal attorney general has gone one step further in his loyalty to the president by appointing a prosecutor to investigate those involved in the investigation on Donald Trump.

Attorney General William Barr appointed a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, John Durham.

The appointment follows a hearing before Congress where Barr said that he believes "spying did occur" on Trump's campaign in 2016.

This is a continuation of a theory that Republicans have established in order to paint the investigation on Trump in a negative way.

The conspiracy started when President Trump attacked the previous Obama administration during his first year in office, of tapping his phones in Trump Tower.

Republicans continued the conspiracy suggesting that a FISA warrant was abused and used to spy on private citizens within the Trump campaign.

Republicans have continued to demand that an investigation be done on Obama administration and former FBI officials who were fired by Trump.

While there are still other continuing investigations that have branched out of the one led by Robert Mueller, it's reported that 

While the two Democratic senators for Connecticut have called Durham a "fierce, fair prosecutor", President Trump nominated him in 2017 likely due to his record of investigating corruption in law enforcement, a continued trend of appointing officials who can serve every function that the president needs to complete his agenda.

In this case, to retaliate against law enforcement officials who have and are investigating him.
