Loretta Lynch Becomes First Black Female Attorney General Of The United States

The US Senate on thursday confirmed Loretta Lynch as the nation's first black female attorney general, after a highly politicized five-month delay.

She'll be taking over from outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder.

55-Year-Old Lynch has served twice as US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, with sterling records as a relentless federal prosecutor putting mobsters and terror suspects behind bars.

The daughter of a North Carolina Baptist minister father and a librarian mother, Lynch has been fascinated with the legal system since she was a child, she attended Harvard College and then Harvard Law School.

Loretta Lynch's father, Lorenzo A. Lynch, was in the Senate gallery watching when the historic vote took place confirming his daughter as the first African American female attorney general.

Hours before the vote, Senator Ted Cruz attacked Lynch as unfit for the position and "unwilling to impose any limits whatsoever on the authority of the president of the United States."

Despite urging colleagues to stop Lynch, Cruz, a candidate for president in 2016, was the lone senator not to vote on Lynch's confirmation, she had votes even from the opposition party.

    SHE DISPLAYED HER BRAIN encouraging young girls to aspire to better things not by being layabouts on social media pouting like electrocuted fish (kardashian tins)
    Success the right way, not by running mileage in their "T junction".
