I’m afraid the fix may be in on Loretta Lynch’s nomination.
Over the weekend, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) told CNN:
“This logjam that you are talking about over this nominee likely will be worked out in the beginning part of this week…”
On Friday, Jeb Bush called on Senate Republicans to confirm Lynch.
Playing on Republican’s known disdain for Attorney General Eric Holder, Bush said the sooner the Senate confirms Lynch, the sooner Holder is gone.
But you’d have to be completely ignorant of Lynch’s positions on key policies of the Obama Administration to make such a statement.
Before President Obama leaves the White House, Loretta Lynch may make Holder look like a constitutionalist!
Just consider what came out in her confirmation hearings:
*** NSA Spying.
When statist Republican Lindsey Graham asked her views on the constitutionality of the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program, Lynch boldly called the program “constitutional and effective”;
*** Drone Strikes on American Citizens.
Like Attorney General Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch flat-out REFUSED to state whether or not she believed the President has the power to carry out drone strikes on US soil against American citizens;
*** Executive Authority.
Loretta Lynch supports Barack Obama’s misuse of Executive Orders to effectively overturn the will of Congress and write news laws via executive fiat.
And this is all in addition to her role as the Queen of civil asset THEFT!
As U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Loretta Lynch’s office SEIZED nearly a BILLION dollars’ worth of private property under the guise of civil asset “theft” just in 2013.
Senator Paul recently testified before the Senate, “Civil forfeiture turns justice on its head, our current laws assume you are guilty until you can prove your innocence.”
So, of course, Obama has chosen the Queen of this practice as the chief law enforcement officer in the country…
That’s exactly why you and I must act quickly to stop her nomination.
The Senate vote on Lynch will come down to the wire — potentially being decided by one vote.
It’s up to you and I to make sure this vote isn’t close enough for Joe Biden to cast the tie-breaking vote.
