In memo, Trump’s AG pick criticized aspect of Mueller probe – AOL News

XWASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s pick for attorney general, William Barr, sent an unsolicited memo to the Justice Department this year criticizing as “fatally misconceived” the special counsel’s investigation into whether the president took steps to obstruct a probe into ties between his campaign and Russia.The 20-page memo, sent in June while Barr was in private practice and months before he was selected by Trump for the Justice Department job, could factor into his future confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee and may prompt questions about his ability to oversee the special counsel’s investigation in an open-minded and impartial manner.
