McCaskill Calls Biden AG Nominee ‘Garland Merrick’

‘Nicolle, give me a break, can you believe Cruz and Cornyn sat there and lectured Garland Merrick on politicizing DoJ’

EXCERPT:

MCCASKILL: "We actually had an attorney general try to dismiss a case after a criminal had pled guilty because he was a buddy of the president’s. I’ve got to just say this right now, I know I shouldn’t go on this long right now but I can’t help it. I watched part of that hearing. Nicolle, give me a break, can you believe Cruz and Cornyn sat there and lectured Garland Merrick on politicizing DoJ after what they put up with, with no hearings, no brushback, with the president Donald Trump, what he did at DoJ? It was disgusting how Trump politicized DoJ. He tried to do it even more than he got away with. And the nerve of them to sit there and act like — Cornyn said the only reason he could ever vote against him is if he wouldn’t pledge to keep politics out of DoJ. These guys have some nerve, don’t they? Unbelievable.”
