During a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on the Justice Department's FY 2022 budget request, Attorney General Merrick Garland explains the Justice Department's decision to defend, in a brief, former President Donald Trump in a defamation suit brought by E. Jean Carroll after Mr. Trump made comments about her when she accused him of sexually assaulting her in the 1990s. Attorney General Garland says the job of the Justice Department is "to represent the American people" and "ensure adherence to the rule of law," adding that "It's not always easy." He also goes on to distinguish the department's role when it comes to defending the law versus defending policies of a particular administration, whether they be Republican or Democratic. close
