Durham Investigation raising questions about Obama Administration

The U.S. embassy official who sought out former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos during the 2016 presidential contest has generated some curiosity among Republican investigators in Congress.
Terrence Dudley, a defense attache at the U.S. Embassy in London whom Papadopoulos believes was spying on him, was reportedly interviewed by the federal prosecutor appointed by Attorney General William Barr to examine the origins of the Russia investigation.

Republican Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe, an ally of President Trump and who is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said this indicates U.S. Attorney John Durham is looking into the Obama intelligence set for evidence of an anti-Trump plot.

"That's a sign that John Durham is looking at the fact that this may include Obama administration officials beyond law enforcement — perhaps to include our intelligence community, folks like [former CIA Director] John Brennan," Ratcliffe said Sunday on Fox News's Sunday Morning Futures.

Dudley met Papadopoulos in London multiple times in 2016, according to Politico, and was interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Papadopoulos alleged Dudley and his colleague Greg Baker, whom Papadopoulos thought were from the Defense Intelligence Agency, were spying on him. Both men have denied the accusation, claiming they made contact only out of personal curiosity.
