The Senate Judiciary Committee approved William Barr’s nomination for attorney general today, The Associated Press reports. The vote now heads to the full Senate, where Barr is expected to be confirmed in a vote as soon as next week. Barr previously served as attorney general from 1991 to 1993. Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has been filling the position since Jeff Sessions departed last year.
