Barr Promises if Confirmed As AG to Allow Mueller to Finish Probe

“On my watch, Bob will be allowed to finish his work,” Attorney General nominee Robert Barr said during testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.

Is that a good idea? I don’t think so, but it may be he had to say this in order to get confirmed. But how does this conform to the rule of law? What if Barr decides that Meuller is abusing his power? Isn’t this a green light for Mueller to do so?

When is it ever a good idea to tell an employee, which is what Mueller is with respect to the Justice Department, that he or she can’t be fired??
