Nominee for Attorney General William Barr will be facing his Senate confirmation hearing today in an effort to get elected by President Trump, and replace Jeff Sessions, whom Donald Trump criticized and fired. If elected, Barr will oversee the Mueller Probe into potential relations between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
Each Senator part of the committee will have fifteen minutes to interview the nominee, followed by a vote by the entire Senate floor that will ultimately decide both the state of the Trump Administration and the Mueller Probe at this point.
The Mueller investigation has already found multiple members of the campaign guilty, including a recent prison sentence for former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort. Barr, if elected, will have a tough task if voted in, and experts have forecasted that it is probable that he gets in.
