Mueller’s Friend William Barr Tells Lindsey Graham That Mueller Is Good



Republican senator Lindsey Graham said that William Barr, nominee to be attorney general in the President Donald Trump administration, will protect Barr’s good personal friend Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation into Trump.

“I asked Mr. Barr directly, ‘Do you think Bob, Mr. Mueller’s, on a witch hunt?’ He said no. ‘Do you think he would be fair to the president and the country as a whole?’ He said yes,” Graham said Wednesday after meeting with Barr.

Bloomberg reports: “They’ve been personal friends for over 20 years,” Graham said, noting they worked together previously at the Department of Justice. “His opinion of Mr. Mueller is very, very high in terms of ethics and character and professionalism.”

Graham said Barr’s and Mueller’s wives attend Bible study together and Mueller has attended the weddings of two of Barr’s daughters.

“I didn’t know that they were that close personally,” Graham said.

Bloomberg passage ends

Barr was previously attorney general under former president George H.W. Bush. Conspirator Rod Rosenstein might be leaving the Department of Justice, and Matthew Whitaker — who is evidently a very ethical Trump loyalist — is only going to be a temporary attorney general if Barr gets confirmed.

Graham has been on a crusade to pass a bill to protect Robert Mueller’s investigation, proving that he is NOT a Trump supporter, despite a concerted effort by Blue Check conservatives on Twitter to make Graham a MAGA hero during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, in which Graham’s motives aligned with Trump’s. Graham has also been agitating to keep troops in Syria against the president’s wishes.

Graham said Wednesday that his Protect Mueller campaign will probably come to another vote soon.
