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 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 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.

"Is that a problem? Is there a way to frame that question where you don't pull back a bloody stump? Difficult for me to answer that question because I don't know who you're talking about. Exactly right like I like Efraim it in a way that you won't get hit. On bigotry charges by WHO right both sides. But I mean Dianne Feinstein got shellacked by on the left and the right for a religious test and for inappropriately probing in Coney Barrett's writing. So I just I'm trying I guess what I'm asking is the hypothetical is, is there any way to ask a judge who has written that? Of course, religion affects my judging does religion affect your job but I think you ask it exactly that way like I. To, answer it wasn. Yes. Of course, there is a way to do that. No matter how you do that there will be bad faith people on the Republican side who accuse you I mean no pun intended but there will be bad faith people who accuse you of acting in bad faith and no matter how you frame it there will be cowardly chicken liver liberals. We're like, no matter what you do. You're going to get that from both sides because the Republicans act in bad faith and the Liberals Act with cowardice. So it's impossible to frame it in a way that appeases both of those extreme wings but in terms of kind of being able to sleep with yourself at night knowing that you have done right of course, there is a way to ask that question. You have to ask that question you have to bring it up because she herself has brought it up. Right. There are Catholic nominees out there who do not make their faith a particular issue in their judicial opinions, right? Like Neil. Gorsuch Piscopo, alien raised Catholic. I didn't know what religion you'll gorsuch was until he already been on the court for like two years all right I like like I had problems with Neil gorsuch based on his writings. I have problems with people like AC based on their writings. It just so happens that Seb's writings make an explicit tie between her religious views and her traditional views and the other the other thing that's worth saying I think in this context is that I care about views like I, I, you know I don't I don't begrudge her believing what she believes as a matter of faith I begrudge her imposing it on me. That, that's that's that's always the issue I have no problem with a person who says because I am X. I believe why in the law I have no problem with that. Whatever problem with is when you take because I believe X. I believe why in terms of law and you must as well that's what I'm like. Well, well, don't don't tell me why Jesus doesn't want me to have an abortion. Tell me why the ninth amendment of the Constitution doesn't allow me to have abortion because we can't do that. You can't do anything for. That's where that's where the argument is against this issue, and of course, there is a way to frame it as such but no matter what Republicans. Are GonNA say that you're being bigoted and Democrats are going to be scared about it. Also, I just don't know how much utility there is to asking such a question because the federalist society has spent forty years now building up a kind of secular justification for many extreme rulings that might be viewed as the acrostic. For instance, denying women control over their own bodies rolling back reproductive rights, you do not see e judges or Conservative attorneys justifying this on the basis of faith right? They say, oh no, you don't understand. The Fourteenth Amendment does not protect unrenumerated rights or the unborn children have a compelling like there are all of these other things that everyone can raise if they are ever. Accused of using their faith to judge, and so there is no point in accusing someone i. think of using their faith judge because there's always a neutral justification, a neutral response and like we both agree alley Republicans will pounce on it and claim that it's anti Catholic bias and a lot of Lily livered Democrats will say Oh. Yeah you're right this went way too far. The the issue is I think were both marketing also agreeing is that like there's no point engaging at all like there's there's no point having hearing. There's no point in lending legitimacy to an illegitimate process by having a sit-down hearing about her issues because it honestly doesn't Matt so sweet stop. Stop Stop because I absolutely was one of the people who said. Democrats, in the Senate shouldn't even show up for Neal gorsuch hearing because there should be yellow crime scene tape around Justice Scalia seat, and it was fascinating. You covered the hearings and like I think that the Democrats in the Senate were sort of both they're under protests and they're fighting on the merits and so there'd be lots of like lengthy passionate speeches about how we shouldn't even be here and this is illegitimate but also talk about the frozen trucker and I think you know if we really are quite serious I like the three of us are quite serious that to. Engage in this hearing on the merits is to bless this hearing on the merits is the tactic to just not show up or chain yourself to the Senate floor in which case let me just add parenthetically you're playing right into.
