|The newest scorn for Republicans. The Brooklyn federal district attorney will be nominated for U.S. Attorney by President Barack Obama. The nomination of Loretta Lynch will be a first for African American women.|
Might as well get it confirmed before the insurgents join the new Republican majority.
President Barack Obama has announced the new pick for Attorney General. She's going to be the newest conservative outrage. She's a Black woman. I can hear the conservative agitators going on about this. After all, they couldn't stand Eric Holder, the current Attorney General.
Holder is the first African American to be currently holding the post of U.S. Attorney General.
Holder was the scorn of the insurgency and Republican establishment. Holder never hid his feelings towards race, the Republicans and criminals. The Republicans held Holder in contempt of Congress back in 2012 over the handling of Operation: Fast & Furious. That ongoing issue was driven by Darrell Issa, Republican representative from California.
Loretta Lynch is expected to be nominated for the position of Attorney General making her the second African-American (and the first African-American woman) to hold that position.

White House principal deputy press secretary Eric Schultz told CNN in a statement "We don't have any personnel updates for you, and I'm certainly not going to speculate on any decisions before the President announces them."
U.S. Officials says the President's decision is not official until there is a formal announcement from the White House.
Lynch would be the second woman to serve as Attorney General and second African American to hold the post. Lynch served on the trial team that prosecuted and won convictions against New York City police officers for violating the civil rights of Abner Louima, a Haitian immigrant who police sodomized.
That experience could help at the helm at the Justice Department, which is overseeing high-profile civil rights probes including that into the Ferguson, Mo., police shooting of Michael Brown.
Lynch has quietly built a solid reputation in New York, where Preet Bharara, the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, garners magazine covers and regular media attention for Wall Street prosecutions.
Her 2010 nomination won Senate approval on a voice vote, meaning Republicans didn't view her as controversial. In recent months, however, she has led the prosecution of Rep. Michael Grimm, a Republican congressman from Staten Island, for alleged tax fraud. Grimm won reelection this week despite being under indictment, and has called the case against him politically motivated. Current Attorney General Eric Holder announced his plans in Septenber to step down.
