Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement after Senate confirmation of Loretta Lynch to be the next U.S. Attorney General:
“Loretta Lynch is one of the best I’ve seen in my 22 years in the Senate and I’m confident that she will be a stellar Attorney General. Her record as U.S. attorney is impeccable, and she’s proven herself as a tough but fair prosecutor and effective leader.
“As Attorney General, she will focus on a range of important issues including our national security, improving community policing and combatting human trafficking.
“I regret that this confirmation vote was delayed by months. No one questions Loretta Lynch’s qualifications for this position and she did not deserve this unnecessary delay. Nonetheless, I know that she will hit the ground running and continue to serve this country with distinction.”
