As we first reported the Department of Justice has opened a criminal investigation into the Mueller Probe, lead by US Attorney John Durham.Now Congressmen Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff have released a joint statement on Twitter in regards to the DOJ announced criminal investigations.
These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under AG Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge. https://t.co/0xxZ8se4Yp via @nytimes

If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.
