President-elect Joe Biden delivers remarks as rioters gather at U.S. Capitol  | USA TODAY 1


President-elect Joe Biden delivers remarks after receiving economy briefing.

President-elect Joe Biden will nominate federal appeals court Judge Merrick Garland to serve as attorney general, the nation's chief law enforcement officer, two sources familiar with the decision told USA TODAY.

Garland's nomination, first reported Wednesday by the Associated Press, will come as Biden seeks to turn the page on a tumultuous period at the Justice Department marred by allegations of politicization under the Trump administration. By choosing Garland, who has spent the last two decades on the federal appeals court and has a reputation for being a moderate, Biden appears to be aiming for a department free from political influence.

In addition to Garland, Biden also is expected to tap Lisa Monaco, former Obama administration Homeland Security adviser, to serve as deputy attorney general; Kristen Clarke, executive director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, to lead Justice's Civil Rights Division; and Vanita Gupta, a former acting civil rights chief, as associate attorney general, said the sources who were not authorized to comment publicly.

  2. It’s only rioting to these people when it affects them.

      @Hey It’s Drew How in God’s name was this peaceful? 4 people died, and many more were injured, including law enforcement. Idk how that’s “peaceful” to you. Also, this was a terrorist attack, not a riot. Call it what it is.

      @Rowley Jefferson The guy with the horns is pelosi daughters husband and the guy next to him is an antifa leader .CONFIRMED .They were let in from the inside .

  3. How come they weren’t called rioters when they took over Portland Oregon and Seattle

    • @big guy – hon, you seem lovely. I wish much happiness for you.

    • @L M I’m a single dad a civilian now I’ll always be a Marine, the night Joe Biden won the election my little daughter played Cat Stevens Moonshadow over and over again in Celebration it almost drove me crazy but I let her do it even a little kid they know things we don’t they feel things we don’t I knew that this was going to be good for the country… she’s only 8.. try to have a good night things will be alright

    • @big guy – you sound great, albeit a little broken, but on the mend. Love your daughter for Cat Stevens! She’s so cool!

    • @big guy – I’m glad there are men like you who understand what decency is and quite simply, “what’s the right thing” when it comes to being a human being. Keep on fighting the good fight my friend. Much love to you and your little girl!

      @Alex Martinez all the BLM donations went to dems. Sure didn’t go to black communities

    • Socialism Sucks | January 6, 2021 at 11:05 PM | Reply

      @sierra – 117 are you being dumb on purpose? They spent a month trying to light a fed courthouse on fire, they shot explosives at officers, threw molotovs, beat the crap out of people and murdered at least two trump supporters, stabbed people…

    He talks about ABL but he removed the emancipation statue

    • His body language looks not synchron to his voice.
      This is a very bad sign. I guess the election was rigged.
      Go learn reading body language, a very helpful tool to identify liars.

  7. What an actor!

  8. Martzy Adventures | January 6, 2021 at 7:53 PM | Reply

    Rise my brothers and sisters!

  9. I see zero fires zero people attacking police

    • Most importantly, no riots

    • The Capital Police shot and killed an unarmed Air Force vet yet never fired a shot at the leftists who were throwing fire bombs and explosives at them. There is going to be one hell of a reckoning coming and I shall be around to watch it.

  10. He even know’s it and still calls trump president. Extremely creepy video… it’s like someone else is remotely controlling him.

    it is a typical situation when happening in another country, the usa would intervene.

    🥱🤭 ehem… roiters? Dont you mean ‘mostly peaceful protesters’?

  13. Himanshu Sirohi | January 7, 2021 at 1:05 AM | Reply

    What US is going through is because of the utter bias of US Media towards Certain sections of society.

  14. Nobody cares. You say president elect, I say accused criminal.

    Ruined his whole virus fear mongering speech. 😪

  16. So the media does know the word rioter, They seem to have been at a loss for words the past 8 months

  17. Finally, Our Joe Joe is out for his two cents on this issue. LMAO

    Biden does not understand the ramifications for whats going to happen to the rest of the west after this…

  19. This is the result of mainstream media peddling division every single day.

  20. And he walks off AGAIN without taking any questions
