Gregg Jarrett Cautions Trump Against His Top Choice For Attorney General, ‘William Barr is an Establishment Insider’ (VIDEO)

Attorney and Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett spoke to Lou Dobbs Thursday evening about a report out by the Washington Post claiming President Trump was eyeing William Barr as his top choice to be the next Attorney General.

Barr, 68, currently works as a lawyer at Kirkland & Ellis and served as United States Attorney General from 1991-1993 under George H.W. Bush.

The decision is not yet final; President Trump may choose someone else to serve as Attorney General.

Gregg Jarrett cautioned against Trump choosing Barr to replace Sessions as AG saying he is a Washington insider.

As for William Barr, yes unquestionable integrity, a fine reputation, great experience – he brings gravitas to the job but he is an establishment figure at a time that I think we need a disruptor as Attorney General,” Jarrett said, adding, “Somebody who would vigorously go after corrupt officials at the FBI and Department of Justice who were abusing their positions of power and attempting to undermine democracy.”

Jarrett then concluded, “I’m afraid Barr is not that guy.”

Jeff Sessions held this country hostage for a year and a half when he decided to recuse himself the first day on the job. Sessions’ recusal ushered in the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller since Deputy Attorney General took over and remains the de facto AG.

President Trump must stay away from establishment insiders who will never dare take on the DC swamp.
