U.S. Attorney for Connecticut John Durham and top federal prosecutors are going "full throttle" with his review of the Russia-Trump probe during the 2016 election, sources informed Fox News.

U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri Jeff Jensen and U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Timothy Shea are assisting Durham with looking at the different components of the initial probe.

"They farmed the investigation out because it is too much for Durham and he didn't want to be distracted. He's going full throttle, and they're looking at everything," the source said.

The fact that Durham could be building a case against those involved in the Russia probe will likely only fuel tensions between the Trump administration and the Democrats.

New York Democratic congressman Jerrold Nadler has already slammed Attorney General Bill Barr for dropping the Michael Flynn case, saying the "evidence against Flynn is overwhelming" and the decision to drop the case was "outrageous."

Last week, Barr told CBS News that Durham is "still looking at all of this" in reference to Flynn being framed by investigators. One source recently told Fox News that Barr and Durham speak daily.

"Barr talks to Durham every day. The president has been briefed that the case is being pursued, and it's serious," the source said.
