Attorney General William Barr was sworn in about two months ago. Barr served as Attorney General before, under President George H. W. Bush. In that stint as A.G., he oversaw Robert Mueller’s work for the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. Barr has always been conservative. But being conservative meant something different in the early ‘90s. He’s viewed by many as a Trump loyalist and an immigration hard-liner.
