Alaska Senators to vote for Trump's AG pick William Barr

Senate panel votes to advance nomination of William Barr, Trump's pick to be the next attorney general

Barr criticized the investigation previous year in a memo to the Justice Department, but he told the committee in confirmation hearings three weeks ago that he would allow Mueller to conclude his work and said he would make as much of his findings public as possible.

The chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee told reporters this week that his panel has yet to see "anything" that would suggest the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential election. Dan Sullivan, R-AK, said he met with Barr Thursday to discuss issues related to Alaska. She also criticized Barr for not committing to publicly releasing Mueller's findings.

Attorney General nominee Bill Barr departs after meeting with Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) said he was concerned Barr's previous testimony on the subject "could lay the groundwork for potentially no transparency at all". While Barr has vowed to be as transparent as he can be, Democratic lawmakers have said that is not adequate.

This is particularly concerning as nothing in existing law and regulations prevents the attorney general from sharing the report.

Barr was nominated by President Donald Trump in December to replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Barr, who served as attorney general between 1991 and 1993 under President George H.W. Bush, is expected to be confirmed in a vote that could come as early as next week. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican, and Richard Blumenthal, Connecticut Democrat, introduced legislation requiring a special counsel to submit a report to Congress. "And I think we have to get to the bottom of it", Barr said.

"I appreciate what Mr. Whitaker has done, but I think the time has come for new leadership at the department", Sen. "We are already seeing unsafe threats to the rule of law".

Whitaker, who was appointed by Trump in November, said last week that the investigation "is close to being completed".

"Barr assured me of his commitment to protecting civil rights, including the vigorous enforcement of voting rights protections", Jones wrote in a tweet Thursday. Durbin said he would vote no. "I don't know what Bob Mueller is writing", Barr said at his hearing last month.
