Merrick Garland, President Biden’s nominee for attorney general, will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee for his confirmation hearing on Feb. 22.
Garland currently serves on the federal appeals court in the District. He is best known for being nominated to the Supreme Court in 2016 by President Barack Obama — a nomination that went nowhere because Senate Republicans refused to give him a hearing. The opening on the high court was eventually filled the following year by President Donald Trump’s choice, Neil M. Gorsuch.
