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.

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

"But at the end of the day there was extreme force used in a situation that it didn't offer at that point, and that's the point that we're addressing, so there's going to be all these other discussions that are happening on the periphery. We just need to deal with this moment and I heard you know a police officer earlier and he was saying. You know we're going to study this video, not the way the public is watching it. We're GONNA. Watch it frame by frame by frame. Frame by frame, and that's how this is going to be played out and examined, and that's where the real analysis will come from. What's happening now has nothing to do with George Floyd. This is all about you know the ANTIFA movement and furthering an agenda. You know the people that were protesting George Floyd were doing a peacefully. They were listening to police officers. They were trying to find common ground, and when this all started, there wasn't a single person that was out there. That thought that this was okay, so it's like we're we all rear.

They're investigating whether and James O'Keefe his undercover video couldn't be more timely. Whether ANTIFA linked agitators or behind a lot of what's going on with these riots. I mean these videos of these bricks just happened to be staged where they expect the protests going to be in some cities. More than coincidental to me trace. Gallagher broke that report on Fox.

Black lives matter saying that we're GONNA arm ourselves and we're gonNA police, our own communities and Democrats offering support to this idea of of not having police They're the first line of defense. Let's see here. Here's the bigger issue right, so we talked about this earlier. The Washington Times released that piece were. They explained that they have all of this evidence. That shows that for months now and FA has been planning this uprising against what we consider. You know our society, you know. Know Mores norms. They just want to break out. They WANNA fight. What we call America has nothing to do with anything. Unfortunately, this terrible situation with George Floyd happening just coincided with their previously determined and planned activities so now all of these things are gelling together, and they can use this as a stepping platform so the brick showing up the milk, showing up the bag showing up, you know all of these cryptic and encrypted means of communication being able to circumvent police it. This is not an accident. This is planned one hundred percent, and then everyone gets lumped together because. People, that are peaceful protesters, we celebrate freedom of speech.
