President Joe Biden must be very disappointed to hear that his nomination of Merrick Garland for Attorney General wasn’t met with unanimous joy and celebration.

[H]e is not fit to be the attorney general because he’s not reading the basic news. If he hasn’t read The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal for the past month, that’s on him.

We need a much clearer response from the nominee to be attorney general, making sure that there is an independent, apolitical, fair investigation.
