Biden AG pick promises to prosecute Capitol rioters, white supremacists

Confirmation hearings began this week in the Senate for President Joe Biden’s pick for attorney general, Merrick Garland — and already, Democrats have found reason for celebration.

According to Breitbart, Garland vowed in his opening statement that if confirmed, he’ll be swift to prosecute those behind the deadly Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill.

“If confirmed, I will supervise the prosecution of white supremacists and others who stormed the Capitol on January 6 — a heinous attack that sought to disrupt a cornerstone of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power to a newly elected government,” the current federal judge said, according to Breitbart.

“Equal justice”

Of course, that wasn’t the only mention of the hot-button issue of racial injustice during Garland’s opening talk. According to The Washington Times, the 68-year-old vowed to stand for equal justice under the law as attorney general and said political forces wouldn’t sway him in his pursuit of that mission.

“The mission remains urgent because we do not yet have equal justice,” Garland said. “Communities of color and other minorities still face discrimination in housing, education, employment, and the criminal justice system.”

Asked later by New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D) about his “motivation” for “confronting hate and discrimination in American history,” Garland gave an emotional response.

“My grandparents fled anti-Semitism and persecution,” Garland said, according to Fox News.

“The country took us in and protected us,” he added of America. “And so I want very much want to be the kind of attorney general that you’re saying I could become. I’ll do my best to be that kind of attorney general.”

Missing the big picture?

Fox and other outlets have reported that Garland is expected to skate through his confirmation hearings with little pushback. Even Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has expressed his support for the judge.

“I think you’re a very good pick for this job,” Graham reportedly said of Garland, even as he was brutally questioning the nominee.

But while Biden’s AG pick may be basking in the praise after promising to bring accountability to the perpetrators of January’s deadly riot at the Capitol, he’s been oddly quiet about the violence that transpired across America last summer as anti-police protesters took to the streets.

Fox Business revealed in September that the unrest likely cost billions of dollars in damages, and reports indicated the violence resulted in over two dozen deaths. If Garland really wants to preach about equality under the law, those responsible for the summer of destruction ought to be in his crosshairs, too.

    1. Another weak as water pick by the stumbling leader of ou8r country. Sleepy Joe is following the message of Bern and his cohorts in weakening the Constitution, As far as equal rights, do not the business owners of the ruined establishments in Seattle and the other cities have the right to sue the government for allowing the destruction and chaos to fester? RVN 68-69

  1. The attack on Capitol Hill was also with the help of DEMS/ BLM and many that never even voted……….The leader was a non-voter according to the police……

    The riot was comletely staged via the DEMS/RINOS and they are still laughing that they can blame it on PRESIDENT TRUMP…………

    1. Pelosi is so deep in fraud she doesn’t know what hole in the dike to fix first.
      the only thing Democrat’s know how to FIX is elections, everything else they devastate.

  3. It is essential that this lilliputian Obammunist hack be given his walking papers by the Senate again. He will be far more dangerous as Xiden’s Roland Freisler or Andrei Vishinsky than he would have been on the Supreme Court. Garland will clearly preside over the regime’s show trials of opponents and thought criminals, for which Schmuck Schumer and Nazi Pelosi arranged for Antifa and Burn Loot Murder to perpetrate violence on January 6 as a pretext. We are rapidly approaching a situation where the only options for free Americans are to submit to Red Chinese conquest and dictatorship or to rise up against the illegitimate puppet regime of the demented crooked pedophile rapist lackey and election-stealer. We must hope that Senator Manchin again steps up to the plate. Biden delendum est!

  4. Merrick is a liberal communist with no regard for the law. He needs not to be confirmed but he himself should be incarcerated.

  5. What about the Ukrainian nazi’s and antifa? It is truly amazing that they impeached DJT but, are now investigating. As with the plandemic, the capital breach was pre-planned by the commuKratz. AOC let cat out when she said that she received a text warning a week before.

  6. Please tell me why, Biden, is not impeached? Donal J. Trump this RATS democrats impeached him twice. There was no reason for that! Biden have so much dirt, China and his son Hunter. CONSERVATIVE INSTITUTE.
    “A free people [ claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature.” Wrong! The fondamental bais of this Nation’s law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fondamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from teaching which we get from Exodus and Apostle Matthew, from Isaiah and Apostle Paul…If we don’t have the proper fondamental moral background, we will finally windup with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.

  7. All I can say is we do not doneing about the real rioters and the group of BLM can go around destroying city’s and killing eminent citizens. But that is ok with the Democrats. I do think that the people in Congress an the Senate should be prosecuted just like every one else

  8. I want all who were involved with ‘breaking and entering’ stores in MPLS rounded up.
    Added charges:
    Shop lifting
    Then all those connected with arson.
    The DC riot were emboldened because what they were able to do in Portland and Seattle with impunity.

  9. All I’ve seen of Merrick Garland is “I haven’t looked into that” or stammering in answer to questions. I don’t think this man was up to the task of being a member of the Supreme Court, nor is he capable of being our Attorney General. Jeff Sessions seems like a Rhodes Scholar by comparison. If Garland didn’t get a hearing decades ago after being nominated to the highest court in the land, maybe this is why.

  10. Garland will be a puppet for illegitimate Biden, I’m sure of that. This puppet will only go after those who believe in President Trump ( yes I said President Trump). Right now this country is being run cesspool politicians including the law enforcement…yes the FBI and now the new DOJ. Hunter’s laptop will be buried for sure.

  11. If he does actually get in, you will NEVER see him go after the democommunist/soros/ new world order “elites” PAID terrorist groups “antifa” and the communist-funded “black LIES matter” (BURN, LOOT, MURDER) SCUMBAGS That were PROVEN to be the “groups” that were “escorted” and bused in, given “MAGA” gear to “blend in” (ON VIDEO) that were “let in ” by capitol “police” (also on video) probably on “orders” from pelosi) that caused MOST of the “problems” and destruction at the capitol that started BEFORE the end of PRESIDENT TRUMP’S speech.

  12. The white supremacists are in the white house and congress. Look at the actions they have been taking, and how executed.

  13. Terrible Choice for AG. Thank God Trump kept him off the Supreme Court.
    He had no answers for the questions he was asked, other than I haven’t thought about it. Bad News.
