US Senate approves Garland for Justice Secretary

In 2016, Barack Obama nominated him to the position of a member of the US Supreme Court, but then the Senate blocked this appointment.

The US Senate voted on Wednesday to confirm Merrick Garland as the country’s new attorney general. The meeting was broadcast on the website of the upper house of the American legislature.

Garland will be sworn in shortly.

In 2016, the 44th US President, Democrat Barack Obama, nominated Garland for the position of a member of the US Supreme Court. However, the Senate controlled by the Republicans at that time actually blocked this personnel appointment for domestic political reasons, and the matter did not reach the hearings and voting on Garland’s candidacy at that time.
