Grassley Statement on Announcement of William Barr Nomination to be Attorney General
WASHINGTON – Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa issued the following statement on the President’s intent to nominate William Barr to be the next United States Attorney General.
“I am pleased that the President has made the choice to nominate the next Attorney General of the United States. Bill Barr is a talented, well-respected lawyer who has been committed to public service over the course of his long career. His compelling credentials and experience, serving at the highest levels in both government—including as a former attorney general under President George H.W. Bush—and in the private sector, make him more than well-qualified to lead the Department of Justice again. I look forward to working with the President and Chairman Graham to move forward with former Attorney General Barr’s nomination in the next Congress.”
