WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) released the following statement supporting the confirmation of Merrick Garland to be the next United States Attorney General:
“Merrick Garland has an outstanding record serving our country and has a deep understanding of the law. He served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division at the Department of Justice as well as 19 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit where he eventually served as Chief Justice. His experience reflects his wide-based legal knowledge and his unbiased application of the law, with a longstanding reputation of bipartisanship, which is why he has earned the respect from both Democrats and Republicans. After talking to him and participating in his confirmation hearing, I have no doubt he will serve with integrity, keeping the best interest of our great country in mind with every decision he makes, and will respect the constitutional rights and liberties of all Americans. Given his outstanding record and commitment to the rule of law, I look forward to supporting his confirmation.”
