John H. Durham, the United States attorney in Connecticut, has a history of serving as a special prosecutor investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials, including the F.B.I.ís ties to a crime boss in Boston and accusations of C.I.A. abuses of detainees.

Mr. Durham, who was nominated by Mr. Trump in 2017 and has been a Justice Department lawyer since 1982, has conducted special investigations under administrations of both parties. Attorney General Janet Reno asked Mr. Durham in 1999 to investigate the F.B.I.ís handling of a notorious informant: the organized crime leader James (Whitey) Bulger.

In 2008, Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey assigned Mr. Durham to investigate the C.I.A.ís destruction of videotapes in 2005 showing the torture of terrorism suspects. A year later, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. expanded Mr. Durhamís mandate to also examine whether the agency broke any laws in its abuses of detainees in its custody.

Mr. Durhamís role ó essentially giving him a special assignment but no special powers ó appears aimed at sidestepping the appointment of another special counsel like Robert S. Mueller III, a role that allows greater day-to-day independence.

With a long record of prosecutorial experience, it would appear that working through Mr. Durham, AG Mr. Barr may be intent on moving straight to filing criminal charges and prosecution.
I sure hope so.....

He is looking at the evidence already accumulated but ignored in favor of stuff that could be used against Trump .
But the evidence could lead right into the Obama White House pretty easily . It would have to be set in cement in order to go after the x president or his top minions .

Yes Sir thanks for noting the difference . Durham is using already gathered evidence but he can tell investigators to pursue evidence as he sees fit .
I have faith in this guy not ignoring evidence no matter where it leads he is a strong Prosecutor .
Someone's gonna pay big he has a track record for doing the right thing no matter who it hurts .

You may be right, but a prosecution needs to be undertaken for the good of the country.
And I do think someone will be prosecuted.
