AG nominee William Barr: ‘Vitally important’ that Robert Mueller finish his investigation

Attorney general nominee William Barr will tell the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing Tuesday it is “vitally important” that special counsel Robert Mueller be allowed to finish his investigation into Russian election interference.

“I will build on the work already done by Special Counsel Mueller and current Department of Justice leadership and ensure the full might of our resources are brought to bear against foreign persons who unlawfully interfere in our elections,” Barr is set to tell lawmakers, according to his prepared remarks obtained by the Washington Examiner on Monday.

President Trump nominated Barr in December to replace Jeff Sessions, who was on the job from early 2017 until his forced ouster in November.

“I believe it is in the best interest of everyone — the president, Congress, and, most importantly, the American people — that this matter be resolved by allowing the special counsel to complete his work,” Barr will say.
