potus-merrick-garland"Today, I'm proud to nominate Chief Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. No one is more qualified to serve our country right now in this critical role. Judge Garland has earned bipartisan praise as one of the best appellate judges in the country - a brilliant, meticulous jurist with a reputation for building consensus. He has dedicated his life to public service, choosing to serve our country and take on some of the most difficult and significant anti-terrorism cases in America's history including prosecuting Timothy McVeigh in the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing. But beyond the courtroom, Judge Garland is a committed mentor and dedicated family man, advising hundreds of law clerks and tutoring elementary school kids in reading and math.I said I would take this process seriously, and I did. I chose Merrick Garland. Take a few minutes to watch this video and meet him for yourself. I'm confident you will share my belief that Chief Judge Merrick Garland is not only eminently qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice, but that he deserves a fair hearing and an up-or-down vote in the Senate. I have fulfilled my Constitutional duty. Now it's time for the Senate to do theirs."
