Graham: Barr Will Be “An Outstanding Attorney General For This Country”

WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) discussed the nomination of William Barr to serve as the Attorney General of the United States.

  • GRAHAM: “[Barr] did a fantastic job during the hearing. You’ve got to remember, he’s the former Attorney General for [President George H. W. Bush]. He was confirmed [then] with a voice vote, not even a roll call was needed. He’s been the Deputy Attorney General [confirmed] by [unanimous consent]…He’s one the preeminent lawyers of our time.” https://youtu.be/SJWGNFMm87w?t=819
  • GRAHAM: “…[Barr] will make it through confirmation this week on the floor. He’ll pick up a hand full of [votes from] Democrats and he’ll be an outstanding Attorney General for this country.” https://youtu.be/SJWGNFMm87w?t=846
  • GRAHAM: “[Barr] would be a steady hand. He’ll look at all the abuse at the Department of Justice and try to bring it back to normalcy. He will let [Special Counsel] Mueller finish his job without interference, but I’m hoping and praying and believing that he will look at the FISA abuse and the other rogue elements of the Department of Justice during the 2016 campaign.” https://youtu.be/SJWGNFMm87w?t=871
