William Barr may turn on Trump the day after he sees what Mueller has: Fox News legal analyst
Andrew Napolitano appears on Fox News (screen grab)

Trump attorney general nominee William Barr has in the past expressed skepticism of aspects of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election -- but Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said on Tuesday that could change in a hurry.


While appearing on Fox, Napolitano pointed out that Barr seemed to be signaling to senators that he's keeping a very open mind when it comes to the Mueller probe by stating that he does not have a first-hand look at the evidence the special counsel has uncovered.

"He did acknowledge this morning, I don't know what the facts are," said Napolitano. "I don't know what they gathered about the president, I was making an academic argument as a private citizen, my mind may be changed the day after I am confirmed, if I am, when I see what Bob Mueller has. I thought that came across very credibly, and in a way that made Republicans and Democrats feel comfortable."

The Fox legal analyst also praised Barr for being a "savvy thinker" and "the adult in the room" compared to other Trump appointees.
