According to the newspaper’s sources, the final decision the President of the United States have not adopted yet.
The Former US attorney General William Barr may once again head the country’s Department of justice. This was reported on Thursday by the Washington Post, citing sources.
According to the information of two people familiar with the situation, the US President Donald Trump announced plans to nominate Barr for the post of attorney general to his advisers. According to another informed source, although Barr is currently the main candidate for the position, the final decision of the American leader has not been made yet.
The publication notes that the ex-Prosecutor General refused to comment on this information.
68-year-old William Barr served as the US attorney General from 1991 to 1993 under President George Bush Sr.
In November, Tramp was dismissed from the post of Minister of justice the US attorney Jeff Sessions. The main reason for the President’s sharp discontent with the former head of the Ministry of justice was the fact that Sessions has decided to conduct an independent investigation into the circumstances of Russia’s alleged interference in the US presidential election in 2016.
Trump and his key aides have repeatedly denied suspicions of any illegal contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 election campaign. Moscow also many times called groundless allegations of attempts to influence the course of the presidential elections in the United States.
