U.S. Attorney General William Barr has assembled a front office team of former Trump White House lawyers in the two weeks since his confirmation to lead the Justice Department, according to sources familiar with the personnel moves.

Brian Rabbitt, a former White House lawyer and top aide at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, is serving as Barr’s chief of staff. Barr’s deputy chief of staff, John Moran, left the White House counsel’s office in October for the Justice Department, where he had been serving as a top aide to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
