William H. Barr Is Reportedly Trump's Attorney General Front-Runner

William Barr emerges as Trump’s leading attorney general candidate

President Trump said Friday he will nominate William Barr to replace Jeff Sessions as his attorney general, and State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as the next USA ambassador to the UN.

Barr not only said that an investigation of this would be above-board, he claimed it was necessary in the interest of justice.

Trump said he "did not know" Barr until recently, but found him to be respected by lawmakers from both partIes.

Under Bush 41, Barr was a hardliner on crime, advocating for expanding state and federal prison systems.

Juan Williams and former Bush adviser Karl Rove sparred over the qualifications of a top potential pick for U.S. Attorney General.

Mr. Barr served as attorney general from 1991 to 1993 under Mr.

Barr, however, has loyally supported many of Trump's decisions from the sidelines.

Barr is now employed with the Kirkland & Ellis law firm in Washington, D.C. There, he still advises corporations with enforcement and regulatory issues, according to The Washington Post. Barr is now rumored to be Donald Trump's top contender to replace ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Democrats would presumably want reassurances that Barr, who as attorney general would be in position to oversee Mueller's investigation, would not do anything to interfere with the probe.

Barr said that not pursuing an investigation of "Uranium One" would be evidence that "the department is abdicating its responsibility".

"Unfortunately, beginning in July, when he announced the outcome of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state, he crossed a line that is fundamental to the allocation of authority in the Justice Department", Barr wrote in the 2017 article.

The question is whether Barr would pass Trump's loyalty test - which proved to be Sessions' undoing, after the latter recused himself from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump heavily derided Mueller's team earlier this year for being comprised of many registered Democrats and Democratic donors.

Barr has been on a White House short list of contenders for several weeks, said a person with knowledge of internal discussions who was not authorized to speak publicly. Barr was one tough lawyer.

"I have worked with him for over 25 years and I believe it would be a great choice", Cullen told ABC News.

Senator John Cornyn of Texas, the No 2 Republican leader, agreed.
