Complaint: American Oversight v. DOJ — Durham Investigation Directives and Guidance

Lawsuit filed by American Oversight against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for records of directives and guidance from U.S. Attorney General William Barr to U.S. Attorney John Durham regarding DOJ’s inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation. This investigation was ordered by DOJ following repeated demands from President Trump and his allies in Congress, and has raised serious concerns about the misuse of federal law enforcement for political purposes. American Oversight initially sought these records to shed light on the scope of Durham’s investigation.
