'Well Done, Mr. President' - Lindsey Graham Digs President Trump's Next Attorney General

On Friday morning President Trump announced the nomination of Bill Barr to replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and current Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitiker. 

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley is applauding the move. 

"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," Grassley released in a statement. "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.”

For years Grassley has been in charge of the nominations process in the Senate. In January, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham will take over as Judiciary Chairman and lead the confirmation hearing for Barr in the new Congress.
