Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) said on Monday that he will oppose President Trump’s attorney general nominee, becoming the first Republican to come out as a “no” vote on William Barr.
Paul told Politico that he had concerns about Barr’s record on privacy, calling him a “chief advocate for warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens.”
The article goes on to state the following:
A spokesman for Paul didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The libertarian-leaning GOP senator had previously raised concerns about Barr, who also served as attorney general to President George H.W. Bush.
With Paul voting no and Jones voting aye, Barr, who passed out of committee on a party-line vote, is still on track for a 53-47 confirmation assuming all other senators vote as expected. https://t.co/OIADgKRjLr
