GOP delays vote on attorney general nominee
WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans delayed a committee vote on the president’s nominee for attorney general Thursday, saying they had more questions for Loretta Lynch.
Democrats complained Lynch was being held to a double standard compared to other nominees and said her nomination should be voted on immediately.
“Clearly she’s been treated differently, and I guess that’s what I object to, because there are sensitivities,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said at a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
But committee Republicans disputed that and said a delay of a week or so is standard procedure when senators have additional questions for a nominee. SOURCE
Of course the Democrats in the Senate are claiming prejudice is slowing down the vote on Loretta Lunch, and it’s no surprise at who is leading the charge to be the first one to throw The Race and/or Gender Card.
Apparently Sen. Dianne Feinstein has NO objections to Lynch’s possible involvement in a Wrongful Conviction Cover-up or any other possible happenings that would cause her to be found unqualified prompting some to ask Will the Real Loretta Lynch Please Stand Up?
“I don’t see any reason for the fuss made here,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah. “We’ve long had the procedural move that anybody can put somebody over to the next markup. There shouldn’t even be a fuss made.”
Hatch added that he intends to support Lynch and said he hopes the additional time will give other Republican senators, including Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley of Iowa, the opportunity to come around to his position.
Lynch needs to be subjected to the most intense, in-depth investigation the Senate can bring about. If the Senate had, from the very start, done a tough investigation regarding the Cabinet members set in place by Barack Hussein Obama maybe we wouldn’t be in the *fix* we’re in.
I don’t know what Sen. Orrin Hatch wants; maybe he wants to *rubber stamp* Lynch so the Judicial process can proceed in the same helter skelter direction it’s taken for the last several years. Hatch is, in MY opinion, nothing more than a RINO, maybe he just wants to make Obama happy.
Grassley said the committee will vote on Lynch at its next meeting, Feb. 26, after the congressional Presidents Day recess. He said he had found some of Lynch’s answers unsatisfactory and wants to hear more from her.
This is as it should be; a thorough and comprehensive investigation, not because Lynch is Black, female or thought to be a Liberal Democrat but simply because it’s the right thing to do for America.
This isn’t about race or gender; it’s about right vs. wrong, good vs. evil, Dems vs. the GOP and their ideas of what is best for America. It’s about hoping and praying that at least *some* in both Houses of Congress have the foresight and fortitude needed to make those decisions correctly and not base them on the money they receive from a PAC.
Sadly, I fear Lynch will be *rubber stamped* and will continue to support and/or overlook every type of violation of the law that Obama and Company can engage in.
Let the investigation proceed, forget the *Race and/or Gender Card* and do what’s best for America, seat an Attorney General that will understand the law and administer the Department of Justice as it should done; in total honesty and above reproach.
Yeah, I know… But we can still dream.
