During hearings to become the chief prosecutor for the Biden junta, Merrick advanced the preposterous notion that Antifa and Black Lives Matter violent assaults on federal facilities and courthouses may not be domestic terrorism because they happened at night. Weeks after the seizure of power, Garland and Biden lifted President Trump's ban on harassment of political opponents and executed a warrant on former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani to seize electronic devices with names and cell phone number's of all Giuliani's contacts. Giuliani led the challenges to Democrat election fraud after the 2020 presidential election. Additionally, Giuliani had in his possession damning evidence related to the Biden family corruption scandals.
Two days prior to the seizure of Giuliani's electronic devices, it was reported that the FISA Court determined Obama era FISA abuse was ongoing. Edward Snowden described in detail how Obama FISA abuse worked to illegally surveil political opponents, elected officials, and judges for blackmail purposes, promote fake news and propaganda, and interfere in elections.

After the failure of the Democrat's H.R. 1 election rigging bill in the 117th Congress, Garland threatened to use the corrupt Biden junta DOJ apparatus of the administrative state to interfere directly in state elections. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich instructed Garland and Deputy AG Lisa Monaco after their public threats to intervene in state election audits:
|"The DOJ seems more interested in supporting the hysterical outcries of leftist pundits on cable television, rather than the rule of law.....My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing and will not tolerate any effort to undermine or interfere with our State Senate’s audit to reassure Arizonans of the accuracy of our elections."|
As of 2021 Garland was serving as the chief judge of the D.C. Court of Appeals where he was first appointed in 1997.
A native of the Chicago area, Garland graduated summa cum laude as valedictorian from Harvard College and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. Garland was a law clerk to Judge Henry J. Friendly of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. of the Supreme Court of the United States. Garland practiced corporate litigation at the Arnold & Porter law firm and worked as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Department of Justice, where he played a leading role in the investigation and prosecution of the Oklahoma City bombers and the unibomber case.
In 1995, Garland was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and (following a delay in Senate confirmation) took the bench in 1997. Barack Obama interviewed Garland in 2009 and 2010 for two openings on the Supreme Court. Conservative Senator Trent Lott led a floor fight to oppose Garland's nomination to the D.C. Circuit in 1997, and 23 senators voted against his confirmation.
Garland served as President of the Board of Overseers of Harvard University. He is currently a member of the Executive Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States.
On March 16, 2016, Obama nominated Garland to serve as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, to fill the vacancy created by the death of Antonin Scalia. On March 19, 2016, Presidential candidate John Kasich said in a Face The Nation interview that he would consider nominating Garland if he were elected President. The next day, he called the television show and told them that he had said that to be polite and that in fact he would not consider Garland for the Supreme Court.
