- In May 2019, shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller released his report, Barr appointed then-U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut Durham to investigate the origins and conduct of the FBI inquiry into alleged ties between former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
- Barr elevated Durham to special counsel status in the final months of the Trump administration, giving Durham extra protections to continue his work once President Joe Biden took office.
