  1. Bravo. Honest, honorable and from the heart. It’s time to move on and this is the -man- person to take the lead

  2. Hopefully Merrick Garland will investigate Trump, Don Jr., Guilliant, Mo Brooks, Hawley, Cruz, and anyone else who was involved in the terrorist attack.

    1. @Paul Drusbasky you mean Trump is a criminal. Trump is a criminal. I think thats what you mean. The term criminal is pretty broad, what is it Trump did that you think was criminal?

    1. THANK THE LORD AMERICA ISN’T GOING TO LOOSE IT’S LIGHT AFTER EVERYTHING IT’S GONE THROUGH. THERE’S THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL.

    1. They say things happen for a reason. This position may be how he serves us better. God bless Merrick Garland.

    1. @TY just go to Maralago and play golf with him because that’s what he always does,… oh wait,. you peasants are not allowed to get inside lol

    2. @TY It’s called “democracy” TY; A system of government by the WHOLE population. Take off your dirty white glasses.

    1. How could you hate it when men cry? Were you around crybabies or something? There is nothing wrong with men crying, it’s when they are sociopathic is what you should worry about.

    2. What a disservice to this country that he was denied the seat on the Supreme Court by the likes of Moscow Mitch.

    1. Pretty clear to me the GOP doesn’t have much respect for our Democracy. They associate with thugs like CONald Dfrump and company and defy honorable ppl like Merrick and other wise weaken it anyway they can. They’re too partisan to lead or serve anymore.

  3. Unlike trumps grandfather leaving Germany to avoid military service! as Trump did. Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!!Barr’s loyalty was to a person, not the country! Garland is exactly what we need right now!!!

    1. @The Unspoken
      No he left Germany in 1885. He emigrated to avoid fulfilling his mandatory military service. Bavarian authorities stripped him of his Bavarian citizenship. Fredrich Trump and his family returned to the United States. He became a U.S. citizen in 1892, with the help of a few anchor babies.

      He first immigrated to the United States at the age of 16 and started working as a barber. Several years later, in 1891, he moved to the Northwest. He made his fortune by operating a restaurant and a brothel in Canada

      As it turns out, Germany wasn’t sending their best.

      (Their best had to escape Nazi persecution and contribute to America’s scientific infrastructure)

    1. CLAIR…You RULE! FANTASTIC RECOGNIZING OF PAST-PRESIDENTS UNETHICAL BEHAVIOUR OVER AND OVER
      AND OVER AGAIN! I WILL SLEEP TONIGHT LIKE I HAVE NEVER SLEPT BEFORE SINCE THIS CRIMINAL ENDANGERED OUR DEMOCRACY! WOW!

    1. @Jerry P
      a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to other races and that those of the white race should have control over people of other races even when whites are the numerical and or democratic minority, or not in an official capacity of authority.

  4. This man went through so much, should have been a Supreme Court Judge but was screwed by the Republicans. He truly deserve to be the next AG. Merrick Garland is a man of decency and integrity

    1. It’s heartbreaking to look back. But looking forward, as he said, it’s the “highest, best” use of his gifts.

  5. That’s the difference! No more “I like beer” and sexual violence allegations, no more “The boss cannot be investigated “ editorial job applications, a man of justice and moral integrity.

  6. Mr Garland knows what discrimination is all about among other things , I have no doubt that he will be one of the greatest Attorneys General ever ! ! !

    1. Absolutely – and the way Garland and Vindman have been treated by men not fit to shine their shoes is absolutely deplorable!
