As the investigation being led by US Attorney John Durham progresses the Democrats in Congress are starting to get nervous. Rep. Jerry Nadler just tried to get his claws into the investigation and is currently trying to get ahold of as much information as he possibly can.

As chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Nadler wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr late last week demanding document and interviews with 15 officials that have some knowledge of cases of personal interest to President Donald Trump.

In a four-page letter, Nadler said, “The Judiciary Committee needs to examine a range of recent actions that smack of political interference, including the Department’s withdrawal of the Roger Stone sentencing recommendation; intervening in the handling of the Michael Flynn prosecution; overruling the decision to relocate Paul Manafort to Rikers Island; opening investigations into career officials involved in the Russia investigation; and a series of controversial interventions into sensitive antitrust matters.”

The New York Democrat added, “Our democracy is founded on the notion that no one is above the law, and strict adherence to the rule of law has separated us from all other nations. Attorneys General have supported this principle on a bipartisan basis throughout our history, but that principle is now under assault. There is also a long history of Attorneys General cooperating in oversight inquiries led by both Democrats as well as Republicans, and given the stakes for our nation, we expect Attorney General Barr’s full cooperation here.”

Out of the 15 officials, Nadler would like to interview Durham was one of them. Barr has until March 13th to reply “given the urgent and serious nature of these requests.”

Barr has been given complete authority by President Trump to declassify information to carry out this investigation. During the counterintelligence investigation into Trump’s 2016 campaign, Durham was assigned to review any misconduct by federal law enforcement and intelligence officials. Durham was also instructed by Barr to look into the FBI’s actions after Trump was elected.

House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, a California Republican, said at CPAC on Friday, “I have faith that Durham is going to get to the bottom of this. I really do.”

And this is what has got Nadler worried.

So far one fired FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith is under criminal investigation for altering a key document for political purposes in the Carter Page FISA investigation.

Nadler is afraid of what Durham is going to find, that is why he is trying to get his claws into the investigation as best as he can.
