According to Natasha Bertrand with Politico, John Brennan is being investigated by John Durham who is probing the origins of the FBI’s counterintelligence probe into the Trump campaign:
NEW: Sources believe John Brennan is a focus of the Barr/Durham probe, and Trump has called privately for investigating Brennan—putting his personal "obsession" w/the former CIA director on a collision course with the Justice Department's inquiry. https://t.co/9B1WPXK68l

Of course, she tries to spin this to make it about Trump. But I seriously doubt Durham would be investigating Brennan if it weren’t warranted.
Here’s what she wrote in her article:
Barr has been meeting with the U.S.’ closest foreign intelligence allies in recent months, making repeated overseas trips as part of an investigation he is overseeing into the origins of the Russia probe and whether any inappropriate “spying” occurred on Trump’s campaign.
As part of that investigation, Barr and John Durham, the federal prosecutor he appointed to conduct it, have been probing a conspiracy theory for which there is little if any evidence, according to several people with knowledge of the matter: that a key player in the Russia probe, a professor named Joseph Mifsud, was actually a Western intelligence asset sent to discredit the Trump campaign — and that the CIA, under Brennan, was somehow involved.
Well if there’s no evidence of wrongdoing, then Brennan has nothing to worry about.
But I suspect there is more to this considering that, according to court records, Mifsud’s cell phones are now in the possession of the DOJ.
