Congressman Don Beyer hailed President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the United States Supreme Court.

“Chief Judge Garland is a superb choice,” said Rep. Don Beyer. “He boasts  unassailable credentials and I urge the Senate to move forward with consideration of this impressive nominee.”

Garland is Chief Judge for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the court on which Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg previously served. He previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney with the Department of Justice, in which capacity he led the investigation of Timothy McVeigh following the Oklahoma City bombing.
