Murkowski Votes to Confirm William Barr as Attorney General

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) released the following statement after voting to confirm William Barr as U.S. Attorney General:

“What the Justice Department needs more than anything else right now is a strong, experienced, thoughtful hand at the helm. Former Attorney General Barr is well suited to the task and to fill the spot he once held. He understands and respects the uniquely independent role that the Justice Department and its career attorneys occupy in our constitutional system,” said Senator Murkowski. “I would be hard pressed to find anyone who questions his integrity and respect for the institution. That is what the nation needs right now.”
