The Political Agitator response: It is about time. This should have taken place long before now however today is another historical moment in history.
Congressman G.K. Butterfield released the following statement: Today is a historic day for our country as Loretta Lynch, a North Carolina native, becomes the first African American female to serve as our nation’s top law enforcement official. Her experience and qualifications will be of great value as she leads the Justice Department in defending the abiding principles of the U.S. Constitution. Ms. Lynch is the choice of President Obama, she is the choice of the Congressional Black Caucus, and she is the best choice for all Americans. I applaud today’s confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the next Attorney General of the United States of America.
