According to the document, the investigation did not find any evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign team.

President Donald Trump and some other Republicans have called for a special counsel to "investigate the investigators" after special counsel Robert Mueller's report found that the president's campaign did not collude with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Huber is expected to complete his review of the Clinton matters in the coming weeks and has handed off everything related to spying on the Trump campaign to Durham, the person said.

"I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal", he said.

Durham, the USA attorney in CT, has been tapped by the nation's chief law enforcement officer to dig into the probe's inception, The New York Times reported Monday night, citing two individuals familiar with the matter.

President Trump nominated Durham for his current post past year and the Senate unanimously confirmed him.

Both the inspector general's investigation and the inquiry being conducted by Huber are winding down, the person familiar with the inquiries said.

Durham, who has been with the Department of Justice since 1982, has led high-profile investigations such as a probe into the FBI's handling of informant and organized crime leader Whitey Bulger and the investigation into the CIA's destruction of videos allegedly showing torture of terrorism suspects. Huber was also tasked with looking into the Clinton Foundation and whether Clinton played a role in the Obama administration's decision to let a Russian-backed company, Uranium One, purchase US uranium mines in 2010. The two Democratic senators from Connecticut, Richard Blumenthal, and Chris Murphy, called him a "fierce, fair prosecutor" who knows how to try tough cases.
