Senate poised to confirm Trump's attorney general pick

Senate poised to confirm Trump's attorney general pick | 12 Feb 2019 | The Senate advanced President Trump's attorney general nominee on Tuesday, paving the way for his confirmation later this week. Senators voted 55-44 to end debate on William Barr's nomination, more than the simple majority needed for him to overcome the filibuster and ultimately be confirmed. The Senate is expected to take a final vote on Barr's nomination as late as Thursday, with Trump's pick on a glide path to confirmation. A vote could take place on Wednesday if senators agree to yield back time.
