The Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating whether Obama administration officials may have hidden or manipulated information on Russian meddling in U.S. elections as part of a possible conspiracy against Donald Trump, according to reports.

U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly probing the possibility that Obama admin officials actively manipulated evidence to fit in with their idea that Trump was working with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

Durham was assigned by Attorney General William Barr to scrutinize the early actions of law enforcement and intelligence officials in the early days of the Russia Probe that eventually triggered the Mueller investigation.

Questions asked by Mr. Durham suggest that the "bulldog" U.S attorney may have come to view with suspicion several clashes between analysts at different intelligence agencies over who could see each other’s highly sensitive secrets, The New York Times reported.

Mr. Durham appears to be pursuing a theory that the CIA, under its former director John Brennan, had a preconceived notion about Russia or was trying to get to a particular result.

According to the theory, Brennan was nefariously trying to keep other agencies from seeing the full picture lest they interfere with that anti-Trump goal.

The Times noted that while some are skeptical of Durham’s investigation, others are not because he has a long track record of investigating law enforcement and intelligence agencies under both Democrat and Republican administrations.

The Times further noted that one of the things that Durham is looking at is how the intelligence community came up with its “analytical judgments — including its assessment that Russia was not merely sowing discord, but specifically sought to help Mr. Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.”

The Times reported that the investigation is looking at multiple communications between different intelligence agencies that involve several different incidents that happened.

Buried deep in the report, the Times revealed that officials had fought over access to emails that the Russian government had previously hacked, which included emails from former President Barack Obama.

The Times added:

A foreign ally’s intelligence service had obtained its own copy of the stolen messages and provided drives with another reproduction of them to the United States government.

Investigators, including at the F.B.I., wanted to look at those files.

They argued that the Russian hackers’ chosen focus while the Kremlin’s election interference operation was gearing up might shed light on that operation.

But an index of the messages compiled by the unnamed foreign ally showed that they included emails from President Barack Obama as well as members of Congress.

Mr. Obama’s White House counsel, W. Neil Eggleston, decided that investigators should not open the drives, citing executive privilege and the possibility of a separation-of-powers uproar if the F.B.I. sifted through lawmakers’ private messages.

Federalist co-founder Sean Davis commented on the revelation that Obama’s emails had been hacked and covered up by executive privilege by writing:

“Multiple foreign governments hacked Barack Obama’s email while he was president, which could explain why James Comey was so eager to make the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email scheme go away.”

Durham has reportedly interviewed numerous FBI officials and agents as well as CIA analysts, although he has reportedly not yet interviewed top figures like former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, or Brennan, according to The Daily Wire.

Durham is reportedly taking a close look at how information from foreign governments or the CIA played a role in sparking suspicions at the FBI that the Trump campaign was somehow connected to Russia.
