AG nominee William Barr (Jan2019)A constitutional attorney suggests there are some "very, very nervous people" in the Deep State now that Attorney General William Barr has been confirmed and taken his post at the DOJ.

With Barr (pictured) now holding the reins at the Justice Department, Republicans like Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) are confident the new attorney general will ultimately make public whatever report special counsel Robert Mueller releases related to the Russia 2016 collusion investigation. According to The Associated Press, just how much of that report he will make public could be the most consequential decision of his long career.

Matt Barber is co-founder and chief counsel of Christian Civil Rights Watch. He tells OneNewsNow that he's confident things will change with Barr in charge.

"Now that Barr has taken the helm of the Department of Justice, I think there are some very, very nervous people in the Deep State," says Barber.

Barber, Matt (Christian Civil Rights Watch)"I know there are those who say Barr is part of the establishment Republican Party, if you will – and that may be true. There are those who say he is friends with Mueller – and that may be true as well. However, I expect to see Barr holding people accountable.

"President Trump doesn't appoint people willy-nilly to these positions of power," he adds.

Barber predicts that ultimately there will be some indictments in terms of actual collusion between Russia and those in high-level positions in the Justice Department – "like Andy McCabe, potentially Rod Rosenstein, certainly James Comey ... and perhaps even Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton."
