The Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to approve Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch. Her full confirmation vote is now headed to the full Senate. During her confirmation hearing earlier this month, Lynch expressed support for President Obama's executive amnesty. She also said she believes illegal immigrants have a right to work in the United States.
"Senator, I think the right and obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country regardless of how they came here and certainly if someone is here, regardless of status, I would prefer that they be participating in the work place than not be participating," Lynch said during her confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill.
Earlier this week, more than 50 House Republicans sent a letter to the Committee urging a vote to block her confirmation.
Chairman Chuck Grassley voted against Lynch's nomination.
“As I’ve said many times throughout the nomination process, what we need from our next Attorney General – more than anything else – is independence. The current Attorney General has permitted politics to drive decision making far too often. For that reason, the question for me has been whether Ms. Lynch will make a clean break and take the Department of Justice in a new direction. After thoroughly reviewing Ms. Lynch’s testimony, both before the committee and in written follow-up questions, I remain unconvinced she will lead the department in a different direction," Grassley said in a statement after the vote. “I sincerely hope Ms. Lynch proves me wrong and is willing to stand up to the President and say ‘No’ when the duty of the office demands it. But based on my review of the record, I cannot support the nomination.”

How can we learn the names of the Senate Judiciary Committee? They are obviously traitors to the Constitution - perfect obamabots. Wonder how much they were paid?
Sens. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) voted with the committee’s nine Democrats to approve Lynch’s nomination
10thA: thanks. Will be writing about their treasonous activiity on FB and anywhere else I can. Writing to those Quislings is useless.
Anyone voting for this person should be removed from office, her testimony indicates she will continue to support the president not the law of the land.
We have had enough of this administration and AG doing as they are directed by the commie in chief.
She is a MUSLIM just like several others in the administration and this folks is not good.
I didn't serve with anyone in the military that ever said we were serving so we could have a SOCIALIST country.
If we don't turn this nominee around and put a AG in place that will protect our Constitution we as a county are on our way just like most of the DEMOCRATS want to being a country run by Socialist and Commies.
I wished that my predictions that I made about this didn't come true. I said that anything that the tinpot oblamea wants, oblamea gets! Their is still a chance that she can be voted down, and I hope that happens. But then again, oblamea can ignore it, as in ignoring the laws that he doesn't want to enforce.
This is truly a sad day for America.
We need to get more involved in our local Tea Party groups. When these obummer puppets come to our districts, we need to be there and protest them. We need to let them know that we have had enough.
One would think that after the Jeb Johnson comment of "his job" was to support muslims they would be more circumspect with their appointments. This woman has consitantly voiced her support of obama and his unlawful power grab. But, apparently all those well paid, over educated, members hae not learned their lesson.
Welcome to the new America, a country that places servitude to a person over the Rule of Law.
