Trump’s Justice Dept. Head Picked for Second Older Reason. sec 1.4


(Not Fernando) The recent me-too target Pres. George HW Bush was convinced by Barr to pardon several arguably treasonous conspirators involved in a Republican effort to defeat Jimmy Carter after the Tehran held hostages were released.

This won’t be the first time that William Barr, President Trump’s nominee to become attorney general, will be involved with what’s been called a “witch hunt.”

Barr, who is scheduled to go before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday for his confirmation hearings, ran the Justice Department once before, under President George H.W. Bush. MORE FROM NPR
