How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Attorney General William Barr Wants to Return To Basics After Stormy Times

Trump’s attorney general pick, William Barr.

In briefings, Barr has asked detailed questions about cases, suspects and legal arguments. He has wandered his fifth-floor hallway to converse about the law.

And he declined the traditional “clap in” where a newly confirmed attorney general walks through the building and subordinates applaud. Instead, Barr held a three-hour reception in his conference room.
