  • One of the most anticipated government reports

  • in U.S. history is now in the hands of this man:

  • Attorney General William Barr.

  • Bill Barr, one of the most respected jurists

  • in the country. Highly respected lawyer.”

  • President Trump nominated Barr for the position

  • last December.

  • That was after he fired Barr's predecessor, Jeff Sessions.

  • For months, Trump had been seething

  • at Sessions' decision to recuse himself

  • from the Mueller investigation.

  • The attorney general says, 'I'm going to recuse myself.'”

  • The attorney general made a terrible mistake.”

  • “I'm disappointed in the attorney general

  • for many reasons, and you understand that.”

  • So where does Barr stand on the special counsel's probe?

  • That was a recurring question

  • during his confirmation hearing.

  • Do you believe Mr. Mueller would be involved

  • in a witch hunt against anybody?”

  • Will you commit to making any report

  • Mueller produces available to Congress and to the public?”

  • Are there any circumstances

  • that would cause you to terminate the investigations?”

  • Democrats have voiced concern that he might try

  • and quash Robert Mueller's findings.

  • And I asked him: Would he issue the full Mueller report?

  • He would not give that assurance.“

  • But Barr played that down.

  • “I believe it is vitally important

  • that the special counsel be allowed to complete

  • his investigation.”

  • It's also worth noting that Barr and Mueller

  • have been friends for 30 years.

  • So how do Barr and Trump get along?

  • We don't know much, but the now-attorney general

  • told Congress that he he was once approached

  • to be part of Trump's legal defense team.

  • “A very brief meeting where essentially

  • the president wanted to know

  • He said, oh, you know Bob Mueller.

  • How well do you know Bob Mueller?

  • I didn't hear from him until, you know, later.

  • But about something different, which was

  • the attorney general position."

  • This isn't Barr's first time as attorney general.

  • He served under President George H.W. Bush.

  • He was a corporate lawyer

  • for many years afterward.

  • He's known for an expansive view

  • of presidential authority,

  • which he talked about in this memo from June 2018.

  • He alone is the executive branch.

  • As such, he is the sole repository

  • of all executive powers

  • conferred by the Constitution.”

  • Whether this will impact how he handles

  • the Mueller report remains to be seen.
