The good news is that President Trump’s attorney general nominee is likely to be confirmed in the Senate.

The bad news is that GOP Senator Rand Paul will be a “no” vote on William Barr.

Paul explains…

I am unable to support Bill Barr’s nomination to be the next Attorney General. While I support President Trump and have supported most of his nominees, I have too many concerns about the record and views of this nominee.

Paul’s full statement:

“I am unable to support Bill Barr’s nomination to be the next Attorney General. While I support President Trump and have supported most of his nominees, I have too many concerns about the record and views of this nominee. Bill Barr was a leading proponent of warrantless surveillance, and his overall record on the Fourth Amendment is troubling to me. I remain concerned that Bill Barr does not agree with our bipartisan efforts to reform our criminal justice system. Finally, Bill Barr has a troubling record on the Second Amendment. For these reasons, I voted today against his nomination for Attorney General.”

More on Barr, via Politico:

The Senate advanced William Barr’s nomination to be attorney general on a key procedural vote Tuesday, paving the way for his confirmation later this week.

The Senate agreed to end debate on the appointment on a 55-44 vote, with three Democrats joining nearly every Republican in voting for Barr.

Although Barr is expected to be confirmed by the Senate in the coming days, he came under scrutiny during his confirmation hearing from Senate Democrats for how he’d handle special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 election and whether Barr would make public Mueller’s final report.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) praised Barr following the Senate vote and said he was confident the attorney general nominee would allow Mueller to finish his investigation without political interference. Graham predicted that when it came to Mueller’s final report, Barr will “err on the side of transparency.”

The attorney general of New York, however, is no fan of President Trump.

Letitia James is the first African-American elected Attorney General of New York state. She was caught on video cursing out and threatening the commander-in-chief.

Reporter: “What would you say to people who say, ‘Oh, I’m not going to bother to register to vote because my voice doesn’t make a difference.” Or, “I’m just one person.”

Letitia James: “I say one name. Donald Trump. That should motivate you. Get off your ass and vote.”

Reporter: “Will you sue him for us?”

Letitia James: “Oh, we’re definitely going to sue him. We’re going to be a real pain in the ass. He’s going to know my name personally.”

BOMBSHELL: Judge Who Blocked Trump’s Border Wall Donated $30,000 to Obama & Dems

Hmm. Anything fishy here?

Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner: A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee. U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. But wait! There’s more… Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.” Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump. Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico. Democrat hearts are breaking across the country. So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every…

WATCH: CNN Says Stuttering Pelosi Tweet Is A ‘Smear,’ But Nancy’s Attacks On POTUS Are Valid

Double standard, much??

When President Trump sends a tweet of Speaker Pelosi stuttering, it’s a “smear.” When Pelosi and Democrats say 45 is mentally unfit for office, it’s no big deal. That’s how things work in Liberalville. Up is down and nothing makes sense. For your entertainment, enjoy the musings of CNN’s Brian Stelter… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132744472037511168?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132744472037511168&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F421760-cnns-brian-stelter-claims-showing-pelosi-problems-is-smear-but-her-attack-on-trumps-mental-health-shows-real-concerns-about-him%2F Due to the conservative policies of President Trump, unemployment in America just hit a 50-year low. Unemployment now stands at 3.6 percent, which is undoubtedly a milestone for the Trump administration – and the United States, as a whole. Women and black Americans, in particular, are thriving. And yet, far-left Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doesn’t see it that way – continuing to play politics at every turn. Pelosi argues that the low unemployment rate is “promising,” but it doesn’t do enough. WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION! Here’s her official statement (bold mine)… “The April jobs report numbers show some promising news, yet these gains hide the true weight of the economic uncertainty felt by millions of hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, the evidence shows that most of the economic gains continue to benefit those already well-off. We must do more to ensure that the economy is benefiting every family in every community, and that all Americans have the opportunity to move ahead in our economy. “Republicans’ shameful special interest agenda continues to undermine the health and financial security of middle class families across the country. This week, two years after House Republicans celebrated their vote to pass the outrageous Trumpcare bill, we still see the devastating impact of the GOP’s continuing health care sabotage. As the Administration continues its monstrous legal campaign to destroy pre-existing condition protections and every benefit provided by the Affordable Care Act, House Democrats are working on taking decisive action to lower health costs and…
