As Donald Trump’s terrorist supporters revolted on the steps of the Capitol, President-elect Joe Biden has taken a huge step towards restoring the rule of law.
His choice for Attorney General Chief Justice Merrick Garland of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals faces daunting challenges of responding to the shocking, but predictable, Trumpist crowd, and rehabilitating a four-downgraded Justice Department years of Trumpist abuse.
Fortunately, his resume and character (I hired for Judge Garland centuries ago, in 1998-99) suggests he might be the perfect fit for the job, having pursued right-wing terrorist Timothy McVeigh and having built a solid reputation for fairness and thoroughness. in the decades that followed.
