“The countries have been helpful,” said the source. “There was no urgent need.”


The President gave the heads of other countries know that the attorney General would contact the appropriate law enforcement units in each country, according to the DOJ officials. If Barr was in Italy last week, he said to the police, there are over Durham’s review, Fox News was told.

Durham was asked to help ensure Barr, “that the intelligence activities of the U.S. government in connection with the trump 2016 presidential campaign is lawful and appropriate.”

Pelosi made the comments on MSNBC the “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough asked if she was worried that the country’s institutions could fail due to Barr’s behavior.

“I think, where you go, is the cover-up of the cover-up, and this is really very sad for you.
