South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham says he is confident the nominee for attorney general will allow the Special Counsel to finish his investigation into Russia meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The Republican met privately with William Barr on Wednesday. He said he was assured by Barr that the investigation will continue. Graham said that Barr has a very high opinion of Robert Mueller. Graham is taking over as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Barr's confirmation hearings have been scheduled for next week.
