Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden's attorney general nominee, vowed Monday to keep politics out of the Justice Department.
As Garland continued answering questions in his Senate confirmation hearing, he became emotional when he was asked why he wants the job.
"I come from a family, where my grandparents fled antisemitism and persecution. This country took us in and protected us. I feel an obligation to the country to pay back. This is the highest, best use of my skills to pay back." Watch the whole emotional clip as Merrick Garland from CNN.
