Trump picks William Barr as next U.S. attorney general

Trump considering former Attorney General William Barr as permanent replacement for Jeff Sessions: source

Who Is William Barr?

As far as what we could expect from an Attorney General Barr in 2019, one can look to a piece he co-penned for the Washington Post with other former AGs in support of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

And if they argue that Barr will be Trump's stooge, they better have more evidence than the two statements discussed above.

Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. An attorney general opposed to the investigation could theoretically move to cut funding or block certain investigative steps.

"In my view, prosecutors who make political contributions are identifying fairly strongly with a political party", Barr told the Post in July. At the same time, he officially announced that State Department spokeswoman and former Fox News journalist Heather Nauert was his pick to replace Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations. "And I think it will go very quickly".

From Verizon Communications to GTE Corporation, Barr spent more than 14 years working in senior corporate positions following his career at the Justice Department, according to his biography. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., before Barr's hearing on November 12, 1991.

In an administration rife with internal conflict and deeply distrustful of the UN, Nauert's nomination would place a less senior person at the global agency than Haley, who reportedly sparred with other administration officials. When nominating Barr to serve as attorney general in 1991, Bush hailed the lawyer as "a man that I respect enormously".

Michigan House votes to extend legislative power
That decision - whether to join or withdraw from this kind of litigation - has been one for the attorney general and governor. The pre-existing conditions measure failed after all 15 Democrats in the Senate and two Republicans voted against it.


For a year, Mr Barr was a member of President Ronald Reagan's domestic policy staff at the White House; a role he eventually left to pursue corporate law.

CNN reported late last month that Barr was among several potential candidates to succeed Sessions.

Attorney William Barr could lead the Department of Justice again as President Trump said he will nominate him as his next attorney general. Instead, Trump was telling confidantes he was happy to leave Whitaker in place while he mulled his choices.

Sources familiar with the matter told the Post that Barr is a "really serious contender, and possibly the front-runner" for the position of attorney general. One former White House official said late last month that Luttig was a strong possibility, though he had not met with the President.

He has also said that James Comey's firing was understandable and that Comey "crossed a line" in his role as Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
