Juan Williams and former Bush adviser Karl Rove dusted off the qualifications of a high-potential choice for the US Attorney General.
Martha MacCallum reported that the former Bush-41 Attorney General William Barr was heavily considered by President Trump.
Trump is also apparently in search of former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) and Attorney General Matt Whitaker.
In an interview with Fox News 2017, Barr said that Mueller could have been "more balanced" in his choice of prosecutors, most of whom have ties to Democrats or made donations to them.
Barr also said that James Comey's dismissal is "understandable" and that he "crossed a baseline" and "transgressed" in his role as director of the FBI.
Williams said that the "problem" with Barr as a choice is the question "how would the Mueller probe". "It is clearly a strong conservative republican".

"He thinks Mueller has too many Democrats on his team," Williams said, noting that Republicans like MP AG Rod Rosenstein and some members of the Senate do not share this concern.
"Is he just entering like a puppet for President Trump?" churches.
Those comments elicited a strong response from Rove, who asked Williams to "go back and read" what Barr said about Mueller and the probe.
Rove points out that Barr respects Mueller, who led the criminal division of the FBI when the first was AG under Bush.
"Juan exaggerated what Bill Barr said," Rove said, adding that Barr pronounced "measured tones" and raised "legitimate concern".
