Attorney general nominee Merrick Garland Senate confirmation hearing | USA TODAY 1


President Joe Biden's nominee to head the Justice Department, former U.S. Circuit Court Judge Merrick Garland, is scheduled to begin his confirmation hearings Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In his prepared opening statement, Garland vows to "protect the independence of the department from partisan influence" after four years in which critics assailed President Donald Trump for regularly venting his opinions on ongoing investigations, particularly ones involving himself and his allies.

Garland also pledges to prosecute the "white supremacists and others" who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in what he calls "a heinous attack that sought to disrupt a cornerstone of our democracy." And, arguing "we do not yet have equal justice," Garland promises in his statement to continue the Civil Rights Division's mission to protect the rights of the "most vulnerable members of our society."

    krypto currencies has been blazing a few indications of solidarity all through the previous few days, with bulls being in full control of their price action as they aim at pushing general prices over the resistance level.. General bullish move has being productive to hodlers and trqd!ers the same, with everybody anxious to get a bit of krypto currency at the present time! In the past few hours bull mrket are in trouble as Bitcion price dropped below $48k. Although i fancy trqd!n over hodling, the crash in price should be more reason to start trqd!n. Overtime, i have used lots of s!gnq1 service and guide from ex:per+s to assist with trqd!n, one of those ex:per+s has been central to most of the trd!nq sucesses i have enjoyed.. Charlotte Lewis administration is one of the productive ones I have ut!l!zed, and I would suggest her for crypto related difficulties. she can be reached on Tel- – qram (@Charlottelwfx ) and What’s– application (+1 3. 3. 2 2 3. 6 7. 1. 3. 5 ) for his assistance. Lets be positive and remain winning
