...U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly investigating if Obama administration officials hid or manipulated evidence about what they knew about Russia's election interference in the 2016 U.S. elections.
...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.
...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.
...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.
...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."
