President-elect Biden introduced his nominees for the Department of Justice, including Judge Merrick Garland for attorney general. Garland was nominated for the Supreme Court in 2016 by then-President Obama, but Republican senators blocked his nomination. Mr. Biden’s announcement came after pro-Trump rioters breached the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, where lawmakers were counting the 2020 Electoral College votes, a perfunctory last step before Mr. Biden's inauguration. Also on Wednesday, Democrats were projected to gain control of the Senate after Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff won their runoff elections in Georgia. Mr. Biden also introduced the following nominees: • Lisa Monaco for deputy attorney general • Vanita Gupta for associate attorney general • Kristen Clarke for assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division #JoeBiden #BidenCabinet #MerrickGarland CBSN is CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service featuring live, anchored coverage available for free across all platforms.
