President Trump nominated William Barr to be his next attorney general on Friday, a position that Barr previously held in former President George H.W. Bush’s administration and was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate in 1991.

Then-Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE), who is a possible 2020 presidential candidate said, “Barr was so agreeable, the Senate should quickly approve him,” according to the Washington Examiner.

“I know of no one on the Democratic side asking for [a] roll call vote,” Biden said before Barr’s confirmation vote. “I see no need for one.”

The Senate then confirmed Barr to be the attorney general by a voice vote.
