President Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, William Barr, will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. EST.
Barr will deliver an opening statement, beginning the two-day confirmation hearing before the congressional committee.
Among other issues Barr is expected to be grilled on his position regarding the ongoing Special Counsel investigation by Robert Mueller given his criticisms of the investigation in the past. According to a copy of his prepared remarks, Barr plans to assure Congress that he believes "it is in the best interest of everyone" that Mueller be allowed to "complete his work" and that, "If confirmed, [he] will not permit partisan politics, personal interests, or any other improper consideration to interfere with this or any other investigation."
Barr previously served as attorney general in the George H.W. Bush administration.
