Attorney General Nominee Judge Merrick Garland became emotional at his confirmation hearing on Monday when asked about the motivation behind his desire to tackle “hate and discrimination” as the country’s top law enforcement officer.

“My grandparents survived anti-Sadi and persecution. The country took us in and protected us,” Garland said. “And I feel an obligation towards the country to pay back and this is the best use of my set of skills to pay back.”

He Added: “And so I want me to be like the Attorney General you are saying I can be. I will try my best to be that type of Attorney General.”

Garland said in his opening statement that the mission to uphold the civil rights of all Americans remains urgent because we still do not have equal justice. Communities of color and other minorities still face discrimination in housing, education, employment, and the criminal justice system; And it has to bear the brunt of the damage caused by pandemics, pollution and climate change. ”

Sen. Cory Booker, DN.J., asked Garland “your inspiration … about facing hate and discrimination in American history”, which gave Garland an emotional response about his family.

Garland, who was named as Attorney General by President Biden following his nomination to the Supreme Court by former President Barack Obama in 2016, made the remarks on Monday, just before his Senate Judiciary Committee’s lunch break.

The hearing was relatively short compared to other hearings for similar high-profile positions under former President Donald Trump. Garland’s reputation as a highly-regarded federal judge on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals indicated to many Republicans that he would vote to confirm him, even though he had asked him some tough questions.

“I think you’re very good for this job,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-Sc, said between grilling Garland on Section 230, rioters in Portland, Horitz’s report on alleged misconduct during the Crossfire Storm investigation and more.

Garland was also asked about the federal investigation into Hunter Biden, whether he considers himself Biden’s “wingman” as former Attorney General Eric Holder said of the relationship between him and Obama (Garland said he did not Does) and much more.

The hearing on Monday is expected to continue until the evening. A second day has been set for Tuesday, though it will likely be only outside testimony and will not include Garland himself.

There will also be a hearing later this week Rep. Deb Halland, DNM, Secretary of the Interior; California Attorney General Javier Becerra to be Secretary of Health and Human Services; And William Joseph Burns to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
