“The long-awaited U.S. Senate confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the first African-American woman to serve as U.S. Attorney General is a proud day for New York, and for our entire nation. Loretta Lynch is an exceptional public servant with an unparalleled track record of results. Whether tackling public corruption, standing up for smart immigration policies or cracking down on cybercrime, Loretta Lynch is a fighter for justice who is committed to defending the rights of all people. I look forward to working with our new U.S. Attorney General and the Obama Administration on sensible policies to uplift and to protect the rights of all those who live in our great nation.”
