'I will not be bullied': US Attorney General nominee William Barr breaks with Donald Trump over Mueller probe
Wednesday, 16 January 2019 Barely days ago, Donald Trump thought he was rid of the men who helped launch the Robert Mueller-led investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 elections; he didn't realise there's a third man of his own choice who could prove to be far more dangerous: William Barr, Trump's own pick for the post of US attorney general and a long-time friend of Mueller's who vowed today in a US Senate grilling that he "will not be bullied" by his political masters in the White House.
U.S. President Donald Trump's attorney general nominee William Barr will pledge at his confirmation hearing to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe and stress his independence from the White House, according to prepared testimony released on Monday. Andy Sullivan reports.
