Loretta Lynch is one step closer to becoming the U.S. attorney general. Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted for her confirmation, and although every Democrat voted in her favor, Republicans were split. Sens. Orrin Hatch (Utah), Jeff Flake (Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) supported her nomination, while Sens. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), David Vitter (La.), Jeff Sessions (Ala.), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Lee (Utah), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.) and Thom Tillis (N.C.) opposed her.
Those who support Lynch all applaud her qualifications and character. But those who oppose her, take issues with her immigration stances.
“We shouldn’t confirm anyone who supports the legality of the president’s executive amnesty,” said Sessions.
In laymen’s terms. We don’t want anything to do with anyone who supports the president’s policies.
Lynch is now headed to the Senate for a full vote.
