Specifically, U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut will question a senior counterintelligence official and a senior analyst who investigated Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, according to the New York Times.
Sources say that the Deep State anti-Trump operatives within the CIA are worried about the potential fallout from this.
Did Obama FBI conspire with the CIA?
US Attorney General William Barr is trying to learn more about the sources that the Obama CIA and FBI relied on before deciding to spy on Trump campaign officials.
CIA Director Gina Haspel said her agency will cooperate with the investigation, but will ensure that CIA sources, methods, and intelligence are protected.
Basically, this is the first of a long line of inquiry to determine why bogus FISA warrants were issued to spy on 2016 Trump campaign officials and how the Obama FBI coordinated with the CIA to conclude that Russia allegedly tried to help Trump get elected and undermine Hillary Clinton.
This is all ironic since President Trump has been far tougher on Russian President Vladimir Putin than Barack Obama ever was.

Obama holdovers in CIA are worried
So far, the Barr investigation is not a criminal inquiry, but could lead to charges if wrongdoing is uncovered.
Sources told the Times that ranks within the CIA are anxious about the probe, since it could reveal the coup they were plotting against a sitting U.S. president — both before he took office and since.
Not surprisingly, Democrats are foaming at the mouth to protest AG Barr’s inquiry. This is especially ironic since Democrats have been investigating Trump and everyone associated with him around the clock — even for tangential matters unrelated to election meddling.
Former Obama CIA director John Brennan lashed out on Twitter, writing: “This is just the latest example of what Vice President Biden meant when he said that Mr. Trump is an existential threat to our country. “Unfit to be President” is a gross understatement. Donald Trump is undeserving of any public office, and all Americans should be outraged.”

Brennan monetized access to nation’s top Secrets
Meanwhile, in March 2019, Brennan meekly admitted that he pushed the Russia collusion hoax, citing “bad information” he received from his dubious (imaginary) sources.
John Brennan has shamelessly monetized his security clearance to get rich and to foment public hysteria that a sitting US president was secretly an agent of the Russian government.
In August 2018, President Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance after he was caught leaking intel to the media.
Naturally, Brennan got enraged and repeatedly trashed President Trump on MSNBC, where he’s employed as a contributor.
