Former Attorney General William Barr, nominated by President Donald Trump for the position, met with lawmakers today, and Senator Lindsey Graham said he will let Robert Mueller do his job.

After meeting with Barr, Graham told reporters, “I asked Mr. Barr directly, ‘Do you think, Bob, Mr. Mueller is on a witch hunt?’ He said no.”

He said Barr has a “high opinion” of Mueller and believes Mueller’s “doing a professional job,” concluding that the AG nominee is “committed” to allowing Mueller to finish.

After Trump announced Barr as his AG nominee, the Wall Street Journal reported last month that Barr sent a memo to the DOJ criticizing one aspect of the Mueller probe.
