What They Are Saying: AG Nominee Barr “Incredibly Well-Qualified”, a “Strong Candidate”, Should Be “Swiftly” Confirmed

“Mr. Barr is the right guy at the right time. He’s had the job in the past and is incredibly well-qualified for the position of Attorney General. I want to congratulate President Trump on nominating someone of this caliber.” – Judiciary Committee Chairman U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), January 15, 2019

“The U.S. Senate should swiftly approve William Barr to succeed former Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general.” – Charleston Post and Courier Editorial Board, January 21, 2019

“His prior experience as attorney general in the administration of George H.W. Bush, which gives him a solid understanding of the Justice Department’s culture of independence, makes him a strong candidate for the post. The sooner he’s on the job, the better.” – USA TODAY Editorial Board, January 28, 2019

“It was reasonable for Mr. Barr to say that he must follow regulations and procedures but will be as open as possible.” – Washington Post Editorial Board, January 18, 2019

“William P. Barr, President Trump’s nominee for attorney general, said nothing disqualifying in his Senate confirmation hearings…” – Washington Post Editorial Board, January 18, 2019

“Lawmakers and commentators have expressed consternation over Barr’s refusal to commit to make Mueller’s report public. But Barr is absolutely correct.” – Washington Post Columnist Randall D. Eliason, January 17, 2019
