(Gateway Pundit) – Incoming Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) met with Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, Bill Barr on Wednesday as the Committee prepares for the confirmation hearings scheduled for next week.
Senator Graham took questions from reporters after he met with Trump’s AG nominee and said that Bill Barr has a very high opinion of Robert Mueller.

“Was it a requirement for you going into this that he say that he would leave the Mueller investigation alone…?” a reporter asked Lindsey Graham.
“It wasn’t a requirement, it was just an obvious question and it took about 3 seconds for me–what do you think about Mueller and what he’s doing — I didn’t know that they worked together, that they were that close personally and that they worked together for years,” Graham added.
Lindsey Graham continued, “I can assure you he has a very high opinion of Mr. Mueller and he is committed to seeing Mr. Mueller complete his job.”
Reporters still weren’t satisfied with Lindsey Graham’s reassurance that Bill Barr would leave King Mueller’s scope alone so they pressed the Senator further.
“He had absolutely no indication he was going to tell Bob Mueller what to do or how to do it. He is confident that Mr. Mueller will pursue the facts and the law,” Graham said.
Well, there you have it!
The Gateway Pundit previously reported on Bill Barr’s relationship with Mueller going back years–the DC swamp is deep!
Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett warned President Trump recently not to choose Bill Barr to be the next AG because he’s an ‘establishment insider.’
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
