[mo-optin-form id=”VBmTNDcWUS”]

“The biggest political crime in American history, by far!” President Trump wrote to Twitter.

Trump retweeted Buck Sexton’s message, which read, “If you read a news story about some European country where, after a fair election, the outgoing president used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration, you’d be appalled.”

“It happened here, and half the country thinks it was fine,” he added.

John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for Connecticut is said to be going “full throttle” with his review into the Russia probe, according to Fox News.

Two sources told Fox News, that Jeff Jensen the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri is lending a helping hand to Durham’s investigation, despite the DOJ’s decision to drop the case.

Jensen was tapped by the Justice Department in February in the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

According to those sources, Timothy Shea, interim U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia is also assisting in the investigation.

“They farmed the investigation out because it is too much for Durham and he didn’t want to be distracted,” one of the sources told Fox News.

“He’s going full throttle, and they’re looking at everything,” the source told Fox News.

The Justice Department declined to comment on Jensen and Shea’s involvement.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said, “The evidence against General Flynn is overwhelming.”

“I think, you know, that’s a question that really has to wait [for] an analysis of all the different episodes that occurred through the summer of 2016 and the first several months of President Trump’s administration,” Barr told CBS News.

“This is one particular episode, but we view it as part of a number of related acts … and we’re looking at the whole pattern of conduct,” Barr said, noting that they were investigating before “and after … the election.”

One source told Fox News that “Barr talks to Durham every day.”

“The president has been briefed that the case is being pursued, and it’s serious.”

“It was a very dangerous situation what they did,” Trump said during an interview with “Fox & Friends” Friday. “These are dirty politicians and dirty cops and some horrible people and hopefully they’re going to pay a big price in the not too distant future.”

More from Fox News:

Trump was specifically reacting to newly released transcripts of interviews from the House Intelligence Committee’s Russia investigation that revealed top Obama officials acknowledged they knew of no “empirical evidence” of a conspiracy despite their concerns and suspicions.

The officials’ responses align with the results of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation — which found no evidence of criminal coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in 2016, while not reaching a determination on obstruction of justice.

The transcripts, which were released by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., revealed top Obama officials were questioned over whether they had or had seen evidence of such collusion, coordination or conspiracy — the issue that drove the FBI’s initial case and later the special counsel probe. They generally said they had not.

“I never saw any direct empirical evidence that the Trump campaign or someone in it was plotting/conspiring with the Russians to meddle with the election,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified in 2017. “That’s not to say that there weren’t concerns about the evidence we were seeing, anecdotal evidence. … But I do not recall any instance where I had direct evidence.”

As for Durham’s probe, multiple sources familiar told Fox News that he is expected to wrap up his investigation by the end of the summer.
