Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statement after the Senate successfully confirmed Bill Barr as Attorney General of the United States: 

“I’m delighted Bill Barr has been confirmed as the next Attorney General of the United States. I look forward to working with him to curb illegal immigration and hold big tech companies accountable.

“I’m disappointed to see so many Senate Democrats oppose this nomination today, despite Attorney General Barr’s unanimous confirmation for this job 27 years ago. I believe he is exceptionally qualified and will lead the Department of Justice with integrity and purpose.”
