Full Senate to vote on Trump attorney general nominee Barr

Share

Mr. Barr is one of the most well qualified individuals in the country to serve as Attorney General as he has held the job in the past. That vote could come as soon as next week.

Barr, who ran the Justice Department from 1991 to 1993 during the George Bush administration, answered questions during his confirmation hearing last month that indicated he would bring a conservative approach to immigration, law enforcement and civil rights enforcement.

He is expected to win confirmation in the Republican-controlled chamber.

Among respondents to the poll, 48 percent say they believe Mr. Trump or his campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, including 87 percent of Democrats.

"I think we all have seen presidents, both Democrats and Republicans, appoint people who are in our judgment political hacks", Sen. Barr says he will release as much as he can under the law.

Graham said that if Barr were to prevent release of a report by Mueller, he would support legislation being pushed by Senators Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, to require full transparency from the Special Counsel. Durbin said he would vote no.

I said 'You got a lot of good choices here.' And he asked about Bill Barr I said, 'That would be a great choice I think because you know what you are getting. "And he will stand up for this Constitution, even if it's against the wishes of this president". Democratic Senators on the Judiciary Committee grilled Barr on issues relating to the Mueller probe and executive privilege, criminal justice policy, immigration, and more.

Democrats on the committee said they were concerned that Barr's expansive views of presidential power, as outlined in his memo, would lead him to suppress parts of Mueller's report that address whether Trump tried to obstruct the investigation.

Among other concerns: Barr would not commit to follow the guidance of career ethics officials on whether he should recuse himself from oversight of the Mueller investigation or commit to defer to Mueller's investigative decisions.

"At a time when our shared principles of equal protection and civil rights for all are under assault, we need an Attorney General who will rise to the challenge of defending them". Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said.

His nomination is expected to go quickly before the entire Senate where it will also likely pass, given the 53-47 margin the president's party has over the Democrats.
