Raising the Barr: The Tipline for 15 February 2019

15 February 2019

There’s a new attorney general in town. The US Senate confirmed William Barr yesterday for his second go as America’s top cop. Following his last stint, Barr spent 14 years at GTE, the precursor to Verizon, but we’re not sure that experience will be all that helpful in getting up to speed with the T-Mobile/Sprint merger, as the industry has evolved since he left that role at the turn of the century. GCR USA is off on Monday for President’s Day and will be back in your inboxes on Tuesday.
