Jefferson City, Mo. – Today, Attorney General Eric Schmitt joined with other state attorneys general to encourage the United States Senate to confirm William Barr as the U.S. Attorney General and released the following statement:

 “William Barr is an eminently qualified nominee for United States Attorney General. As a former U.S. Attorney General, Barr has served his country with dedication and distinction.  Barr has broad experience in both the public and private sectors, which has provided him with the necessary skills to effectively lead the U.S. Department of Justice.

 While previously serving as U.S. Attorney General, Barr emphasized reducing violent crime across the nation.  His leadership and partnership with state attorneys general will be needed as we work together to keep American families safe.  I strongly encourage the United States Senate to confirm William Barr as the next U.S. Attorney General.”
