President Donald Trump will tap a law school graduate to serve as the next attorney general.
Trump confirmed on Twitter Friday morning that he will nominate William Barr, the former attorney general for George H.W. Bush, to replace Jeff Sessions. Sessions resigned at the president’s request last month.
Barr received his law degree from GW in 1977 after earning a bachelor’s degree in government and a master’s degree in government and Chinese studies from Columbia University.
He currently works at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis in D.C.
