The review is highly unusual and more evidence of political interference by Barr into the work of career DOJ prosecutors.
Barr has also installed outside prosecutors to review the handling of other politically sensitive [Trump related?] cases in the DC US Atty’s office. The team includes prosecutors from the office of US Atty Jensen, who's handling the Flynn matter.

“Barr has also installed a handful of outside prosecutors to broadly review the handling of *other politically sensitive national-security cases* in the US attorney’s office in DC…”
