Barr appoints Durham as Special Counsel for SpyGate

Alayna TreeneBarr appointing John Durham as special counsel of the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe

This will make it much more difficult (but not impossible) for Biden to fire Durham to prevent him looking into SpyGate.

Interesting questions...

First, this was done 10/19/20: October, before the election. Why? And why was it kept confidential? And why was it released now?

Second, Durham is confirmed to be looked at Mueller's Special Counsel operation.

Third, why was it released concurrently with Barr's comments to AP on election fraud?

Fourth... notice how all the other prosecutors (Huber, et all) that we've been hearing about are apparently not Special Counsels. Did they get folded up under Durham or closed?

UPDATE: Fifth, the Special Counsel regulations require the SC to come from outside government. Is that a landmine that will cause problems later?
