President Trump and Attorney General William Barr reached out to foreign officials as part of an investigation into the origins of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, several news outlets reported.

Trump spoke to Australian officials, while Barr had contacted British and Italian authorities, The Washington Post first reported.

The Justice Department confirmed to Reuters that Trump had reached out to foreign countries to introduce Barr and another Justice Department official assisting in the inquiry.

Trump has called on the investigation to back up his insistence that the origin of the special counsel probe was motivated by political rivals with no substantive evidence of wrongdoing.

The new information is certain to be used by House Democrats in their impeachment inquiry. It also raises questions about whether Trump is using his contacts for personal gain.
