Barr throws curveball into Senate GOP ‘spying’ probe

Attorney General William Barr’s decision to tap a U.S attorney to dig into the origins of the Russia probe is throwing a curveball into investigative plans on Capitol Hill.

Barr has appointed a U.S. attorney in Connecticut with the responsibility of examining the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, a move long clamored for by President Trump and his conservative allies. But the decision comes as a trio of high-profile Senate Republicans are planning their own investigations into “spying” on the Trump campaign during the 2016 election and the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe.

GOP senators stressed they back Barr’s decision, though they warned that it could hamper their own plans in Congress, where prior committee probes have been thrown into limbo as they’ve tried to get access to the same witnesses and documents being swept up in a Justice Department investigation.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) stopped short of saying he would end his investigative plans when asked about the impact John Dunham’s appointment will have on his panel, but said that lawmakers “need to be cautious” and “make sure we don’t get in his way.”
