President Biden address the nation, names Attorney General office

(BlackPressRadio.net) – Black Voters are losing their patience with President Biden after refusing to naBlack women to key cabinet positions. But with the naming of Kristen Clarke to head up the Civil Rights division some are questing his decision, others are applauding it.

President-elect Joe Biden introduced Merrick Garland as his pick for attorney general along with three others he has selected for senior Justice Department positions to “restore the independence” of the agency and faith in the rule of law.

In picking Garland, a federal appeals judge, President Biden is turning to an experienced judge who held senior positions at the Justice Department decades ago, including as a supervisor of the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.  Kristen Clarke will head up civil rights.

Garland’s nomination will force Senate Republicans to contend with someone they spurned four years ago — refusing even to hold hearings when President Barack Obama nominated Garland for the Supreme Court.
