Garland will take the reins of the Justice Department

Garland has been nominated Biden’s Attorney General and he will take the reins of the Justice Department as federal prosecutors across the country pursue hundreds of cases against those involved in the Capitol riots on January 6.  Garland’s nomination sailed through the Senate 70-30 on Wednesday.

Today Garland has sworn as Attorney General: “We are united by our commitment to protecting our country as our oath says, from all enemies, foreign and domestic. And by our commitment to enforcing our country’s laws and to ensuring the civil rights and the civil liberties of our people,” Garland said in his first speech.
