Just in, as reported by Reuters, "The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday approved President Donald Trump’s attorney general nominee, William Barr, and sent him on to the full Senate for a final confirmation vote."

Barr is a Republican lawyer who served as Attorney General under President George H. W Bush. He also worked under former President Ronald Reagan's administration on the domestic policy staff.
