The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote today on William Barr’s nomination for Attorney General.
The Republican-led panel is expected to send the nomination to the full Senate for a confirmation vote.
Barr served as U.S. AG from 1991 to 1993 in the George H.W. Bush administration. He would replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was let go by President Trump last year.
Brian Mudd has pointed out that Barr was approved by the Senate back in 1991 with overwhelming bipartisan support, meaning a lot of Democrat votes, so it will be interesting to think what happens this time around.
