Didn't Durham find FBI corruption in the whitey burger [sic] case under mueller?
Ripping FBI special counsel Robert Mueller as a political "zealot," Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz reminded staunch Mueller supporters about the former FBI director's role in protecting "notorious mass murderer" Whitey Bulger as an FBI informant.
"He's the guy who kept four innocent people in prison for many years in order to protect the cover of Whitey Bulger as an FBI informer. Those of us in Boston don't have such a high regard for Mueller because we remember this story. The government had to pay out tens of millions of dollars because Whitey Bulger, a notorious mass murderer, became a government informer against the mafia ...
"And that's regarded in Boston of one of the great scandals of modern judicial history. And Mueller was right at the center of it. So, he is not without criticism by people who know him in Boston."
Did Barr pick Durham because Durham may feel he has some unfinished business? Or is it just coincidence? Does it matter? Whatever--"Bob" may feel that speaking in public, especially under oath, may not be the wisest thing to do right now. At the least he'll want to be very careful.
Some news - AG Barr working closely with CIA Director Haspel, ODNI Director Coats and FBI Director Wray on surveillance issues related to Trump campaign - suggesting broader interagency effort underway

Well, well! Imagine this! Maybe Mueller time will come at some point.
UPDATE 2: Via Zerohedge, an account that suggests that Durham had wanted to go after Mueller in those Boston days: Barr's Investigator John Durham Once Probed Mueller In A Shocking Case.
Robert Mueller was knee-deep in this scandal, along with Andrew Weissman and the agent sent to prison, but because Reno gave him very limited authority, Durham was not able to prosecute Mueller, who was not in the FBI at the time.
