William Barr said he was a good friend of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Responding to a question from Sen. Lindsey Graham, Barr also said Mueller would not be “involved in a witch hunt.”

President Trump has frequently called Mueller’s investigation a “witch hunt.”

Here’s Barr’s full exchange with Sen. Graham:

Graham: Would you say you have a close relationship with Mr. Mueller? 

Barr: I would say we were good friends. 

Graham: Would you say that you understand him to be a fair-minded person? 

Barr: Absolutely. 

Graham: Do you trust him to be fair to the President and the country as a whole? 

Barr: Yes. 

Graham: When his report comes to you, will you share it with us as much as possible? 

Barr: Consistent with the regulations and the law, yes. 

Graham: Do you believe Mr. Mueller would be involved in a witch hunt against anybody? 

Barr: I don’t believe Mr. Mueller would be involved in a witch hunt.
