Confirmation of Loretta Lynch

 

Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II's Statement Regarding the U.S. Senate 56-43 Vote Confirming NC Native Daughter Loretta Lynch as Top Law Enforcement Official in the Nation 

DURHAM, NC: Today, after more than 165 days since she was nominated, the Senate brought U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch's confirmation as the next U.S. Attorney General to the floor for a vote. In a 56-43 vote, the Senate confirmed Lynch to be the next U.S. Attorney General and first ever African American woman to serve in this role. 

Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, President of the NC NAACP, has issued the following statement: 

This is a day for shouting and celebration for America, with the confirmation of U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and a day of shame and condemnation in North Carolina for Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, who chose to vote against her confirmation. 

America moves forward and they continue to move backwards.

The period between the Senate Judiciary Committee's vote to confirm and the full Senate vote -- which in Lynch's case has not been scheduled -- has lasted longer for her than for any attorney general nominee in recent history. By the time the Senate returns from Easter recess on Monday, it'll have been longer than the eight previous nominees for the job -- combined.
