Alberto Gonzales, former United States Attorney General and the former Counsel to President George W. Bush, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about William Barrís confirmation hearings to be the next Attorney General. Judge Gonzales believes Bill Barr did a fine job explaining what he meant when he appeared to defend President Trump in a 19 page unsolicited memo to the Justice Department and to Trumpís lawyers on the scope of Trumpís Executive powers. Gonzales believes one of the biggest challenges for William Barr, if he is confirmed, will be to mend fences and regain trust between members of Congress and the Department of Justice. When discussing whether or not President Trump will order him to withhold releasing the Mueller report, Gonzales said that could be out of the hands of William Barr because the President can decide for national security reasons to withhold making the final report public.
