WASHINGTON—Senator Mitt Romney released the following statement in support of William Barr’s nomination to serve as Attorney General of the United States:

“After carefully reviewing William Barr’s record and meeting with him personally to discuss his experience and qualifications, it is clear that he is exceptionally qualified to serve as Attorney General. Mr. Barr has a distinguished record of public service, and I believe he will provide strong leadership, respect and defend the rule of law, and maintain the Department of Justice’s independence. I am also confident in his commitments to allow the Special Counsel to continue its investigation unimpeded and to be as transparent as possible with the American people regarding the results of that investigation. I look forward to voting in support of his nomination.”
