I am pleased to announce that I will be nominating The Honorable William P. Barr for the position of Attorney General of the United States. As the former AG for George H.W. Bush....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 7, 2018
....and one of the most highly respected lawyers and legal minds in the Country, he will be a great addition to our team. I look forward to having him join our very successful Administration!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 7, 2018
For what it’s worth Barr has been supportive of Trump and very critical of Mueller.
