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.

The article goes on to state the following:

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.”

“I don’t want to impede his ability. I don’t want to jeopardize somebody subject to an investigation,” Graham told The Hill. “I want to make sure that oversight doesn’t get in the way of the prosecutor. … We’ll have to be cautious and find our way forward.”

Show your support for President Trump!

    It’s about time! There’s been so many questions about the validity of the investigation as it moved along with zero answers even as Mueller investigated people for other crimes but didn’t investigate one of the biggest questions and crimes within the investigation.
