In 1978, Mr. Barr served as a law clerk under Judge Malcolm Wilkey of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Following his clerkship, Mr. Barr joined the Washington, D.C. office of the law firm of Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge as an associate.

William Barr Biography And Profile

William P. Barr, also known as Bill, J.D., served as an Independent Director of Time Warner Inc. from July 2009 to June 14, 2018. Mr. Barr served as an Executive Vice President and General Counsel at Verizon New England Inc. Mr. Barr led the legal, regulatory and government affairs group of Verizon. He served as General Counsel at Verizon Communications Inc. from 2000 to 2008.

Barr is one of four children. His father, Donald, taught at Columbia University before becoming the headmaster of the Dalton School. His mother, Mary, was a Yale graduate and taught at Columbia as well. He’s been married to his wife, Christine, for more than forty years. The couple has three daughters together.

Before Barr joined the Trump administration, his oldest daughter, Mary Daly, worked in the Justice Department as the director of opioid enforcement and prevention, but she left her role for the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit as her father was confirmed. Daly’s husband currently works in the Justice Department’s national security division, and Barr’s other son-in-law, Tyler McGaughey, serves as an attorney in the White House counsel’s office.

Barr’s Confirmation Hearing

Barr assumed his position in President Trump’s administration on Feb. 14, 2019, when the Senate confirmed him by a 54-45 near party-line vote. He replaced acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who held the top post since Trump fired his first attorney general, Jeff Sessions, in November 2018. Trump has said that Barr was his “first choice from day one.”

At Barr’s confirmation hearing, he expressed support for the border wall and a federal law banning anti-LGBT discrimination, argued against sanctuary cities and immigrants “abusing the asylum system,” and echoed Trump’s mistrust of the press. Despite the rhetoric in his earlier memo, Barr also argued that Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election must proceed.

William Barr ON Mueller’s Report

When Mueller submitted his report to the Justice Department in March 2019, Barr stopped short of promising to release it in full — and he’s faced staunch criticism from Democrats ever since. Two days after Barr received Mueller’s report, Barr sent a four-page summary to Congress, saying: “The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.” On the question of obstruction of justice, Barr wrote that while Mueller’s report “does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.”

Barr released a redacted version of the Mueller report a month later. Almost immediately Mueller raised objections to Barr’s characterization of the Russia investigation and its findings, saying Barr’s four-page summary failed to “fully capture” the findings, prompting Democrats to heighten their criticisms of the attorney general.

Barr has shown more disdain for the Russia probe — and other investigations into the President — as time has passed. In December 2019, for example, Barr described the Russia investigation as a “travesty,” and lambasted former FBI officials involved in opening it, claiming “the greatest danger to our free system” is that the Obama administration “spied” on the Trump campaign in a way that he said sought to influence the 2016 election. ABC News did not find evidence to substantiate those claims.
