Senate Confirms Attorney General Nominee William Barr

The Senate confirmed attorney general nominee William Barr.  On Tuesday, the upper chamber voted to advance Barr's nomination to a final vote.

That vote fell largely on  party lines .

Only three Democrats voted in favor of moving Barr forward, and one Republican voted against it.  Democrats have been putting off Barr's confirmation.

They've voiced their concerns about him and special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.  In the past, Barr's said he thinks Mueller should be free to continue his probe, and the public should be informed of the results once he's done.

But Barr could choose whether Congress and the public get the full report, a redacted version or even just a summary — and that's not sitting well with Democrats.  They're also concerned about a memo Barr wrote last year.

That memo criticized Mueller's investigation into whether the president obstructed justice as "fatally misconceived."  Barr has held the position of AG before.

He served under former President George H.W.

Bush from 1991-1993.

He also worked for former President Ronald Reagan as a member of the domestic policy staff.
