The candidate of US President Donald Trump for the office of the attorney General, William Barr, wants to exercise according to his words, no impact on the Russia-investigation of the FBI. "Under my supervision, Bob (FBI-special investigator Robert Mueller) allowed to carry on his work to the end," wrote Barr in a Statement for his hearing in the Senate on Tuesday, the CNN channel has been published.
The Senate must confirm Barr in the office. The candidate also made it clear that he did not want to keep a final report Mueller's under lock and key.
"I think that it is very important for the Public and the Congress is that you will be informed about the results of the work of the special investigator," wrote Barr. "If I am confirmed, I will not allow that party politics, personal interests, or any other undue Considerations affecting these or any other investigations."
Barr was already investigated, justice Minister
Mueller, whether it came in the presidential campaign of 2016, to collusion with the Trump camp and representatives of Russia. Trump denied this, and the investigation is called a "witch-hunt".
The current Minister of justice Jeff Sessions had to go in November after months of criticism of the President. The reason for trump's dissatisfaction was the fact that Sessions had to be explained in the Mueller-investigation, for self-conscious, and the supervision of his Deputy, Rod Rosenstein passed.
Barr has expressed in the past to be critical of Mueller's investigation. In the prepared Statement he now wrote, with his criticism, he had never asked Mueller's investigation is in question. It is in the best interest of the President, the Congress and the American people that the matter would be cleared up by Mueller in his work.
Barr was already the beginning of the 1990s, the Minister of justice under President George H. W. Bush. (anf/sda)
