UPDATE

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows applauded the appointment.

CSPAN producer Craig Caplan reminded people of one important tidbit: Connecticut Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, both Democrats, supported Durham's nomination to be a United States Attorney General.

ORIGINAL POST

Attorney General William Barr on Monday appointed Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia probe. The goal of Durham's investigation is to determine whether or not the probe was “lawful and appropriate," the Associate Press reported.  

"Durham has previously investigated law enforcement corruption, the destruction of CIA videotapes and the Boston FBI office’s relationship with mobsters," the AP reported.

This is a developing news story. As more information becomes available this post will be updated.
