The president-elect remarked on the chaotic and deadly scene that unfolded at the Capitol on Wednesday during his announcement of Judge Merrick Garland as his nominee for attorney general, as well as three others to serve in the highest ranks of the Justice Department, earlier this week.
Biden told the nominees: “You won’t work for me. You are the not the president or the vice president’s lawyer. Your loyalty is not to me. It’s to the law, the Constitution, the people of this nation to guarantee justice.”
