Barr vows to protect Russia probe from WH

William Barr, President Donald Trump's pick to lead the Justice Department, will tell the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that he will protect special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.

According to prepared testimony released Monday, Barr will tell them, "On my watch, Bob will be allowed to complete his work." Mueller is investigating election interference by Russia and possible collusion between Russia and Trump's 2016 campaign.

Barr, who served as attorney general in the early 90s, has previously criticized the probe.

But in his testimony, he'll clarify that his criticism was focused only on his concerns that Mueller might be misinterpreting one aspect of the law.

Trump has denied any collusion and regularly refers to the probe as a witch hunt.

Democrats are expected to press Barr on his commitment to the Mueller investigation.
