[Ed. – Of course.  Republicans can ram Barr through, and by all accounts they should.  Here’s to the Democrats’ tactics backfiring on them and causing more to come out on Hillary Clinton and Uranium One as they seek to use Barr’s posture on that against him.]

President Trump has nominated a “brilliant man” to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general, the president said outside the White House Friday. He has tapped William Barr, former attorney general for the late President George H. W. Bush, for the position.

Trump said he “did not know” Barr until recently, but found him to be respected by lawmakers from both parties. He predicted the process will go “very quickly.”

However, Democrats have hinted that they will make the nomination process a nightmare for Barr, considering his past criticisms about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. He has also reportedly suggested that Hillary Clinton’s role in the Uranium One scandal was more worthy of investigation than Russian collusion.
