At last, Merrick Garland gets his Senate confirmation hearing.

Now Garland gets another chance to go before the Senate Judiciary Committee at 9:30 a. m. ET on Monday, the first day of a two-day hearing, but this time he's appearing for a different role as President Joe Biden's nominee to lead the Justice Department.

While Garland is expected to face pointed questions over multiple thorny issues awaiting him at the Justice Department, his selection has been praised by both Democrats and Republicans leading up to the hearing.

Garland is likely to face questions from Democrats and Republicans alike on how he plans to navigate the political investigations in the Department -- both involving Trump as well as Biden's son, Hunter Biden.

Democrats, meanwhile, are likely to push Garland on whether the Justice Department will investigate Trump, particularly following the January 6 riots that led to his impeachment.
