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.
