Exclusive: Barr met with prosecutor now reviewing Russia probe immediately after Mueller investigation ended, documents reveal

CNN)Almost immediately after special counsel Robert Mueller closed his investigation last year, Attorney General William Barr was huddling with the prosecutor he assigned to re-examine the Russia probe -- in a series of meetings that haven't been previously known and appear to highlight Barr's drive to rewrite the legacy of the Mueller investigation.

Barr met at least six times with US Attorney John "Bull" Durham over a 10-week period in spring 2019, including once during the critical days after Mueller submitted his report to the Department of Justice and before it was released to the public, according to Justice Department records released to the transparency group American Oversight and shared with CNN this week. American Oversight sued the Justice Department in August for records of Durham-Barr communications and meetings.

The records could begin to fill in gaps about the start of Durham's review. Barr has been clear about his skepticism of the Russia investigation since even before he became attorney general, yet how the Durham probe began, how closely Barr has directed Durham's work and the full sweep of Durham's investigation isn't known. While it's unclear how routinely Barr was meeting with other prosecutors in Durham's position at the end of the Mueller investigation, the newly discovered details of his meetings with Durham illuminate how the two men communicated at a crucial time.

The newly released records show Barr moved quickly after becoming attorney general in February 2019 to get face time with Durham.

2. 100% proof

That Barr and Trump had a pre-arranged plan.

I'm just shaking my head. I said the Democrats should have never participated in confirmation hearings for Barr and I am proven correct time and time again. If they don't start impeachment inquiry now, they don't care about America.

4. They've got something on Dunham

It's fucking obvious.

Biden needs to make a pledge that every single piece of paper, from shared recipes to evidence of blackmail, corruption, fraud and treason.

It also needs to be made clear that destruction of even one Damned post-it note will result in criminal prosecutions.
