Yes we heard around 48 hours ago. It's an effort by Donald's New Roy Cohn to placate him. Durham will have no ability to issue subpoenas and there are already three other investigations as to the "origin" including one by the Inspector General.

To use the resources of our DOJ and taxpayer dollars to investigate the investigators is a page right out of the authoritarian playbook. They SHOULD be working to stop Russia from completely F-ing over our election next year.

Meh - another day, another punk move.

Except that it is not Benghazi again. It is blatant political revenge.
It's a necessary investigation and as the new Special Prosecutor and the IG reveal their findings, Trump haters are going to be found with egg all over their face.

You can tell that a few of the leftists players like Comey and Brennan are very nervous. They have good reason to feel the heat coming their way.

There is no new "special prosecutor". The guy does not even have subpoena power.

Right. The Judge can call no witnesses. He can only check to make sure the actions that led up to the investigation were legal. That is all he can do.

Since the Judge has a good reputation he will be fair, but this will shut Trump down.

Yep, this one is over before it starts. Look at the testimony of Wray and about two dozen other people who were THERE at the time. Look at the FISA warrants signed off on again and AGAIN by REPUBLICAN Judges. If I were this Judge, I'd just take a little time off and go fishing or play golf :)
