William Barr is 68 years old and the Attorney General for George H. W. Bush. If President Trump has his way, General Barr will also be his AG. During the Bush years, Mr. Barr was known as a blunt talking, no nonsense, tough on crime Attorney General. He would be returning to the position at a time that crime is down, but the push or legal drug use has risen rapidly. He would also come in at a time criminal justice reform is a hot topic. In Virginia, Barr worked for then Governor George Allen to reform the criminal justice system in that state.
The President intends to nominate Mr. Barr and several Democrats, including that idiot from Hawaii, are already signaling a no vote, which has more to do with the President and less to do with any real objections. Barr should probably be confirmed.
Interestingly, Barr worked at the CIA before working on the domestic policy staff for President Reagan. He is a very responsible pick of bipartisan credentials who has even earned the praise of people like Joe Biden. Biden thought very highly of Barr during his time in the Senate with Barr as Attorney General.
