I don’t have any regret,” “But I have developed concerns about the death penalty in the 20-some years since then, and the sources of my concern are issues of exonerations of people who have been convicted, of sort of arbitrariness and randomness of its application because of how seldom it’s applied, because of its disparate impact on black Americans and other communities of color. Those are the things that give me pause, and those are things that have given me pause as I’ve thought about it over the last 20 years” External link

Merrick Garland said : “And I will do everything in my power, which I believe is considerable, to fend off any effort by anyone to make prosecutions or investigations partisan or political in any way. During Trump’s term, the former president openly regarded the attorney general as someone who should be loyal to him. Cruz brought up the Fast and the Furious scandal, a sting operation using firearms sales to track drug traffickers. Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, was held in contempt of Congress by the GOP majority for refusing to hand over documents related to the operation. Cruz pressed Garland several times on the issue of partisanship and the politicization of the Justice Department, citing only examples from the Obama years, including the surveillance of some Trump aides over possible collusion with Russia. The only basis for targeting has to be evidence of the risk of a foreign intelligence problem or of a criminal problem. And that is a nonpartisan issue,” “That is a question of objective facts and law. And it can never be an effort to help one party or another party in politics, in investigations and prosecutions. There is no party. The department is an independent, nonpartisan actor, and that’s my job to ensure that that’s the case” External link

Merrick Garland said : “And I will do everything in my power, which I believe is considerable, to fend off any effort by anyone to make prosecutions or investigations partisan or political in any way. During Trump’s term, the former president openly regarded the attorney general as someone who should be loyal to him. Cruz brought up the Fast and the Furious scandal, a sting operation using firearms sales to track drug traffickers. Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, was held in contempt of Congress by the GOP majority for refusing to hand over documents related to the operation. Cruz pressed Garland several times on the issue of partisanship and the politicization of the Justice Department, citing only examples from the Obama years, including the surveillance of some Trump aides over possible collusion with Russia. The only basis for targeting has to be evidence of the risk of a foreign intelligence problem or of a criminal problem. And that is a nonpartisan issue,” “That is a question of objective facts and law. And it can never be an effort to help one party or another party in politics, in investigations and prosecutions.
