The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the deep state and the department pursued policies of almost unimaginable proportions from separating thousands thousands of innocents, migrant Children from their parents, the banning innocents Muslims from traveling to our shores from defending and even artery violent crackdowns on peaceful protesters. Hurting baseless lies about voter fraud. In the lead up to the 2020 election, the misdeeds of the Trump Justice Department brought this nation to the brink. In fact, as we learned after President Biden's inauguration, a senior official in the Trump Justice Department Jeffrey Cork, plotted with President Trump for one final stab at the results of the 2020 election they were Thor did at the last minute by Justice Department attorneys. Threatened to resign on mass rather than join the reference. So Judge Garland it's Noah overstatement to say that your nomination is one of the most critical and department history when I reflect on it..

Domestic terrorist. That basic. It's that simple. All right. Now do be Om. Let's find onto Joe Biden's credit. I want to be 100% fair, he has said even during the summer rioting is not the answer. Looting is not the answer. Now his cohort there, Kamila Harris was putting together packs the bail these people out, But Joe Biden has always said rioting is not the answer, but he's never been so over the top in talking about it. Quote from Kamala Harris in August. Quote protesters should not let up. Quote from Kamala. I mean, you could talk all about the rhetoric. Donald Trump. Was talking yesterday. And if he was in encouraging a quote insurrection if he was telling people off through coded language to storm the capital, But don't pretend like he's the only one That's done that I'm not. I'm not saying what he said was right. There was some inappropriate stuff, but they he learned from the best he learned from Maxine Waters. You learned from Nancy Pelosi that said she was confused why Americans aren't uprising against the Trump administration a couple years ago. I'm not saying I agree with it, but don't act like he's the only one that's ever used that genre of language. Biden has also selected Judge Merrick Garland to serve as his attorney general. Now, if that name sounds familiar, that was the judge that's Obama had appointed during his lame duck face to try to fill that Supreme Court vacancy to which the Republican led Senate said.

How have you received the vaccine? No, Not yet. Okay, word on that. Good checking been looking for it. And nothing yet. Have you dropped the Do you know who I am yet? Oh, of course not. It might be time of not going to do that. You might not need time Your health is worth everything exactly. It looks like Joe Biden has found his man as far as Attorney general is concerned, and it's the name you will know. Okay. It is. It is Judge Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Yes, Well, he didn't make it to the Supreme Court, so he's going to make it elsewhere. Yes, well It looks like Biden is going to turn to him. He's held several senior positions at the Justice Department several decades ago, including hey was if you remember he was supervisor, the prosecution of the 95 Oklahoma City bombing case. Did. They wouldn't the um Supreme Court. Nomination for him came up. It was it was Eric consistency. Pretty good guy. Everybody thought he was qualified. Yes, yeah. Yeah, it seems that's it Seems like that's what I remember. Right. So you know, I'm still have the attitude. Well, okay, let's kick back and see what he could do for us. Well, I mean, you know, he mean Uh, the president elect picks the attorney general. If he picks Garland. Exactly. All we can do is pray that he's prepared. Um yeah, and and then he can, and then he's confident. Well have well, we'll see. That's all. We could do that. But a name that we have heard. Merrick Garland Looks like he will be attorney general. There is one person saying that Donald Trump shouldn't be prosecuted after he leaves office. And you asked this question earlier. You know why? Why would they even consider it? Why would someone think about prosecuting? Uh, the current president for what? Or if, well, there would be a criminal investigation. Uh, you know, and and I think that would be whether it's you know, financial fraud or whatever. I'm not saying that they've got anything on him. What I'm saying is, you know after a investigation, would there be Grounds for You know, charges brought up for prosecution against the President James Comey writes in a new book. That Joe Biden should not pursue a criminal investigation of Donald Trump. Truly amazing, Actually, actually, not You. Really, Steve, You disagree. I wouldn't want anybody to investigate somebody else. If I was complicity and trying to screw with that somebody, huh? And that would come out in the investigation. Exactly. Well, maybe that's a That's a great point. I I stand corrected here. I'm always Comey's justification was, although those cases might be righteous in a vacuum, the mission of the next attorney general must be fostering the trust of the American people. James Comey says it investigated by the way. One of the things it was wrong of yesterday is, you know now that the two Georgia Senate seats are going to the Democrats. You can. You could dismiss any 100 Biden investigation. That ain't happening. That's that's done. That's gone. Lots of family history. That's weird reading it. Yeah, it is. The Biden family three. Yes, Yes, it is. It goes on. Then there's lots of branches on that tree. And he's the sap. Right? Telling him your family tree. That family tree. This is fun to read. Yeah. The story that came out yesterday that I'm glad it did, because I was awfully confused in this fight against Cove it and how it affects certain people. But they're now saying that smoking doubles the risk of hospitalization from Covina. And if you remember early on, we were told that it looked like smokers were somehow protected from Covina. And so there was previous research out there that suggested that But now we're being told No smoking is not good. Yes, but there's Smokey's girl and misery to couldn't have been good for anything that's gonna add. It's got a bad, bad to anything. Yeah, I'm not a doctor. But as an ex smoker, I remember people telling me left and right is not good for your lungs. Yeah, well, that that's where Cove it gets you but there was no but there was some talk that somehow early on, you know, we had these studies that were out that I don't know if it was the tar or what No one ever from the cigarettes had had had coated the long to a point where it it wasn't affected by the covert like Like others who didn't so But now, But now we're being told that's not true.

That biden is going to Choose merrick garland as the next attorney general the idea being and he was It seemed to have been between doug. Jones garland yeah and elliott's got sidelined. Yes and and frankly doug jones would have been a better. Pick in my estimation garland but merrick garland sits on the dc circuit court. This is the This is the considered to be the most important court in the country short of the supreme court and one of the things with the knowledge that it appears that the democrats will have control the senate. It frees joe biden up to do is to appoint a successor merrick. Garland they would not have chosen. Merrick garland right if they did not have control the senate and had the ability to replace him without a problem. Remember filibusters gone now for federal judges and a supreme court justice so i would have preferred doug jones but this is indicative of a whole host of things that joe biden is no longer going to have to be concerned with in the energy in by joe biden i mean the administration is going to have to be concerned with and can focus all of its resources and all of thought now. Obviously there's other things asked to happen in our government. They don't have to worry about. And i said this yesterday about seeing the secretary of education or seeding the health and human services or worrying about a fight over who will be You know at least a fight with the republicans in any position in the cabinet or judges.

Bloomberg radio Com Bloomberg The world is listening thistles balance of power on Bloomberg television and radio. I'm David Weston. We wanna pursue that breaking news reports out of the Associated Press and political say the president elect Biden will nominate Merrick Garland as attorney general. We turn now to our colleague bloomers Larry Liebert in Washington. So Larry American, of course, is well known to the public at this point because he has been in the D C circuit was nominated to Supreme Court. And the Republicans refused to take up his nomination at the end of the Obama inspiration. What do we know about Judge Garland? Well, first of all, as you say that it's rich in poetic justice. Uh, hey, was on the list for Joe Biden throughout. But it's clear that Biden wait until he was confident that he would have a Democratic Senate on depict, though a moderate, he picked someone Who had universal support in Congress when he was up for the appeals court but was blocked by Mitch McConnell. So there's that iron he is widely respected on he will it serve a unique role because after President Trump's often criticized relationship with Bill Bar Hey, will come in, with Biden pledging publicly repeatedly that he will leave his attorney general to run his the Justice Department. Hey, won't interfere. And that includes on pending matters like the investigation into the president elect son Hunter. But here you have Ah, fellow with a Very temperate style. Ah, a distinguished track record. And as you know, David, Since I understand you, you do know him. Here's a guy who's giving up the security of a lifetime appointment on the appeals court for a position that's going to be fought with complexities and political pressures on all sides. I did know him quite well. We cook together on the second circuit he for judge friendly, a very distinguished judge, and then He clerked for Justice Brennan when I was at the Supreme Court Justice Powell so I have known him and until your stations career but only pick up the one thing you said Larry President elect Biden has said he wants an independent attorney general. If he wanted that he's got somebody like that in Merrick Garland, because, as you suggest he's had a full on distinguished career, he doesn't need this job at all. He's got his Place in the history books already and so he is somebody who I would expect would tell the president exactly what was the truth. There are also, uh, there were other candidates who might cause more of a stir among, uh, support among liberals, including Sally Yates, who was a senior official who stood up to President Trump in, uh, when he began his term and she's not. She didn't get the nod. Doug Jones, who off the Senate seat, he probably would been easily confirmable, even with the Republican Senate, or at least confirmable. But instead, Biden went with someone who again has this poetic justice going from what the Democrats will appreciate, but has a track record that will be hard. They'll try. There will be hard for Republicans to assail Larry.

"The supreme court for the new york times so this was the first term with neil gorsuch on the court and he was the decisive vote in fifteen of the eighteen cases decided by a five to four margin gives her analysis of how he performed in this his first term he got off to quite a start so those statistics alone tell you something and one thing they tell you is that almost everyone if not every one of those cases would have been decided differently head judge merrick garland president obama's nominee gotten onto the court rather than been blockaded by senate republicans so that tells you what a transformative figure justice gorsuch is simply by his vote but he also hit the ground running very active questioner wrote a lot of separate opinions and chief justice roberts entrusted him with some major decisions including his very second assignment it sometimes it takes years for junior justice to get a decent case they usually get what people to court called dogs trivial complicated boring cases his second assignment was a major case on workplace arbitration probably the most important business case of the term in which the court said that businesses can force their employees as as a condition of employment to give up their right to go into court and file class actions over things like wage theft and even to join together in the informal dispute resolution proceedings known as arbitrations even there they have to arbitrate these disputes one by one even though the sums involved can be quite small and justice course wrote the majority opinion for five four majority again the conservatives in the majority of the liberals in dissent and the fact that chief justice roberts entrusted him with that important decision is a a telling vote of confidence yeah you say that it's unusual for a junior justice to get major decisions to right so so elaborate on what that says it says that he entered the court as as a full partner new the early thinking was i i was in my early thinking too was that he would simply be an ally of the most conservative members of the court justices thomas and alito he'd vote along with him he wouldn't surprise us in any way but he was actually a more nimble figure he was closer to the center of the court really the center of the court this last term was roberts kennedy in gorsuch and he's vote was occasionally play on one occasion in an important immigration case he joined the courts liberals so he's a much more dynamic and interesting figure than some of us initially thought president obama had nominated merrick garland for the supreme court that was blocked by mitch mcconnell who said no no no it's an election year your terms almost over we have to let the american people decide by voting.

"You cake so you heard the announcement what was your initial reaction brutally honest my initial reaction was the nomination by president obama of chief judge merrick garland was a basically sort of a sacrificial lamb type so to speak because president obama does not believe that the republican congress senate is going to relent actually hold here therefore he picked an older more moderate more difficult person for republicans argue against and make it very political very difficult for them politically in this campaign season with the president's election coming up without going to the young ideologically liberal stars on bench that liberals can draw on it hillary clinton wins the presidency he basically put someone out there that less liberal older he's white he's a white male and therefore you know he doesn't get through that fine he still has a good job on the dc circuit court of appeals as chief judge but it did not throw one of the more of up and coming stars of the democratic party on the bench to the wolves so to speak just kind of die on the vine and bitter of bitterly fought presidential campaign year yeah absolutely end the president had considered him before but ultimately the two appointments he had or the nominations he had went to justices sonia sotomayor and elena kagan not in his direction so this was a way to come back and as you mentioned he is the chief judge for the us court of appeals for the dc circuit in fact he was appointed people might remember by bill clinton in nineteen ninety seven so what what is the upside i suppose let's look at it from two different angles what's the upside for the president doing this is he kind of saying to the republicans who were putting it out there that this isn't the time to nominate there's not enough time left in the year and this should be really the job of the next president is a kind of saying to them i think it's more than just that because the president certainly has the constitutional authority and discretion to nominate associate justice even if it's the last day of his term so he can do that i think what the the.
