Seems like a fairly establishment pic. Should have broad support across both aisles.

Within a week, we'll probably be hearing about why Barr is a threat to democracy.

A week? When did you become so naive? :-)

Pelosi Statement on Nomination of William Barr
San Francisco – Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the nomination of William Barr to serve as Attorney General:

“The President’s proposed nomination of Mr. Barr is deeply concerning. Barr has spent the past two years auditioning for this job by stoking partisan attacks on our nation’s law enforcement community, and encouraging the President to use the Justice Department as a political weapon to pursue his rivals and undermine investigations into Trump and his family’s scandals.

“Barr’s constant attempts to weaken and undercut the credibility of the Special Counsel investigation cast serious doubt on his ability to oversee this critical investigation.

“This nomination is the latest in the President’s pattern of installing partisan hacks in the highest reaches of our government who will happily do his bidding. The American people expect assurances that this nominee will ensure that justice is pursued, the rule of law is respected and the Mueller investigation will continue, unhindered by the President or his cronies.

“Our new Democratic Majority will bring a new dawn of openness, transparency and unity to the Congress. When we take the gavel, restoring the health of our democracy will be H.R. 1, so that we can clean up corruption to make Washington work For The People.”

William Barr is another unfortunate pick for attorney general. His record is one of empowering government, specifically the executive branch, at the expense of liberty and the rights of the people. We need an AG who will uphold the #4thAmendment and #5thAmendment, not erode them.

So nice to see GOP "lawmakers" who did absolutely fuck all when Obama and Bush was in charge to come out of the woodwork when it comes to civil liberties.

Amash is a libertarian. Libertarians are right that the 4th and even 5th Amendments have been trashed. They're just committed to civil liberties more than most.
They criticized Obama for not restoring them too. I wouldn't say he's a nobody though, he can ally with Trump depending on the issue.

2 year AG for GHWB is now unfit to hold the job. I like how DT announced his nomination of GHWB's AG right after he died and the whole world has been eulogizing him as the last great statesman gentleman. Will make it harder for the dems to call Barr a worthless POS since George the Great had him as AG.

They aren't going to give Trump a vote for anything the rest of his term, but since they don't have the votes to stop him, it doesn't matter anyway.

Just a grandstanding platform for those Democrats seeking to launch their 2020 campaigns, like the Kavanaugh hearings. A colossal waste of time.

I'll take it:

Barr, he said, was “blunt” and “direct,” and would have no problem standing up to Trump — or brushing back against the kind of tweetstorm attacks that Trump leveled against his last attorney general, Jeff Sessions. “Bill is tough and he’s not likely to be pushed around,” Flanigan said. “If it came to it, and Bill is being attacked — I don’t know that Bill has a Twitter account — but he just might get one.”

Notably, the source said, Barr had watched with dismay Trump’s attacks on Sessions and had no interest in putting up with the same sort of abuse. What finally changed his mind? “Patriotism,” said Flanigan. He and others say Barr genuinely felt the call of duty, especially after the turmoil the Justice Department has experienced in recent weeks with the selection as acting attorney general of Matthew Whitaker, an obscure and inexperienced former U.S. attorney from Iowa whose main apparent credential was that he had previously defended Trump on cable TV.
