President Trump announced Friday he intends to nominate William Barr, who led the Justice Department during President George H.W. Bush's administration, to serve as attorney general.

Before departing the White House for Missouri, Trump confirmed to reporters he had picked Barr to replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was forced out of the post last month.

“He was my first choice since day one,” Trump said of Barr, "respected by Republicans and respected by Democrats."

Barr was attorney general from 1991 to 1993.

Five things to know about William Barr, Trump’s pick for Justice Department

President Trump has picked a Washington veteran who served as the nation’s top cop under former President George H.W. Bush to be his next attorney general.

William Barr, 68, served in the role in a very different Washington and under a very different president from 1991 to 1993 after he was confirmed by a voice vote in the Senate.

If confirmed, he’d take over from acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and succeed Jeff Sessions, who ran afoul of Trump by recusing himself from the Russia investigation.

Here are five key things to know about Barr.

He’s criticized Mueller's team

While Barr has not directly commented on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, he did question donations that members of the investigative team made to Democratic political candidates, including Hillary Clinton.:snip:
