Trump to nominate William Barr, former Bush 41 attorney general, for attorney general and Heather Nauert as the United Nations ambassador.

President Trump announced Friday that he plans to nominate William Barr, the George H.W. Bush-era leader of the Justice Department, as his next attorney general – as well as State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to succeed outgoing U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The nominations, which had been widely expected, were confirmed by the president as he prepared to leave Washington for a conference in Missouri.

He said Barr was his “first choice from day one,” though acknowledged he didn’t know him until recently.

“Bill Barr will be nominated … I think he will serve with great distinction,” Trump said.

Fox News is told Trump liked the immense respect Barr commands and the fact that he has earned bipartisan support in the past. If confirmed, he would replace Matthew Whitaker, the former Jeff Sessions chief of staff who took over as acting attorney general last month.

Attorney General Sessions resigned at the president’s request – coming after Trump lambasted Sessions in public for months over his recusal from the Russia investigation.

Barr led the Justice Department under Bush from 1991 to 1992, and currently works at the Kirkland & Ellis law firm in Washington.

Prior to serving under Bush as attorney general, Barr was deputy attorney general and led the Office of Legal Counsel.

According to his biography, he served in the Central Intelligence Agency from 1973 to 1977.

Americans will know soon enough just what Barr is made of. My money is on same old same old. The first thing he needs to do is clean out the Trump backstabbing DOJ employees. If he can’t fire them then put them somewhere where they can’t do any harm to the Trump agenda. But I repeat myself, My money is on the Deep State. Stage 4 cancer for America.
