President Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney general sounded the alarm Monday on the domestic terrorism threat facing the United States.
“I certainly agree that we are facing a more dangerous period than we did in Oklahoma City at that time,” Judge Merrick Garland, the nominee, told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The 1996 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal office building killed 168 people, including children. An investigation found that the bombing’s conspirators were radicalized by white nationalist propaganda in the aftermath of the deadly FBI raids at Waco and Ruby Ridge in the early ’90s.
Garland was a principal associate deputy attorney general at the time, and led the Department of Justice’s prosecution of the bomber.
