Scandal-Ridden Loretta Lynch Clears Committee With Three GOP Votes

By Seung Min Kim. Loretta Lynch cleared a key vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday in her bid to become the nation’s next attorney general, picking up support from three Republicans on the panel in favor of her confirmation.

The vote was 12-8. The three Republicans who backed her nomination, along with all committee Democrats, were Orrin Hatch of Utah, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Jeff Flake of Arizona.

The next battle is on the Senate floor, where the federal prosecutor from Brooklyn is still expected to have enough GOP backing to be confirmed. But the controversy over President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration have overshadowed her nomination — particularly after her confirmation hearing last month, where she testified that those unilateral moves are legal.

Most GOP senators on the committee stressed that they could not support someone to be the nation’s chief law enforcement official who believes that the executive actions — which Republicans uniformly oppose and say are unconstitutional — are legal.

Loretta Lynch’s Secret Prosecutions

By Johnny Dwyer. The office headed by the woman poised to become the next attorney general has used an unusual method to keep many of its prosecutions hidden from the public, an NBC News investigation has found.

Federal prosecutors in New York’s Brooklyn-based Eastern District pursued cases against secret, unnamed “John Doe” defendants 58 times since Loretta Lynch became head prosecutor in May 2010. Two of the 58 are terrorism cases.


Eastern District prosecutors have also sought permission to close the courtroom to the public for 11 different Doe cases during the same period, and judges have granted permission in at least 10 of the cases, as recently as February 12.

Critics are concerned the practice may infringe the Constitution’s guarantee of a public trial. (Read more from this story HERE)

    Another corrupt DOJ..does this surprise anyone? The apples do not fall far from the tree…Obama’s tree.

      what is sad is that the Republican Majority who were elected in the greatest upset in recent history, are willing to cave to a lawless criminal president and put into power another criminal who will continue the onslaught of lawlessness to subvert and contravene our Constitutional rule of law.

        Yes, and until the patriots of this country get enough and form an army to take down this tyrannical government, nothing will change. We no longer have representation or checks and balances…they are all in it together. Our forefathers saw this in our future, and they have stated that when government is usurped, we have the right….actually, it is our responsibility to do away with it and replace it. King George (Obama) underestimated the Americans, when he taxed their tea, they decided that enough was enough. I am wondering what this corrupt organization is going to do that creates the shot heard round the world. People in this country are seething and sooner or later, something will happen that triggers the second revolution….and the conservative states will seek secession from the union….all hell is going to break loose sooner or later, and all of it could be stopped if Congress filed impeachment charges against Obama and put him out of the White House along with his Irian in chief, Jarrett. How many acts of treason does this man have to do before someone has the balls to impeach and charge him…he has done so many things that fall under that and one is failure to stop the invasion from Mexico, one of the 21 duties afforded the federal government by the Constitution….the rest of the things they are doing are totally Unconstitutional.

        Rino Graham has got my last vote.

  • akprayingmom

    Hatch, Graham, and Flake are arrogant self-serving cowards who have deliberately lied to their constituents and the American People. They and others including McConnell, Murkowski, and Boehner should be removed from office immediately. America which used to be a beacon of hope and a “shining city on a hill” in a dark world, has now been overrun and taken over by criminals in both parties, who hold the highest positions of power in our government. Now these criminals boldly appoint more criminals to force their tyranny on the American people to further enslave them and steal away, our God-given unalienable rights to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

    People of Utah, Arizona and South Carolina have a problem folks with RINO’s in their mist. It’s your call people, it’s your state they represent. Please no more idiots in DC. Recall sounds real good!

  • Kevin

    Beyond sad that such a splendid situation to try to reverse course–or, at least, slow down the damage Obama is doing daily–is being thrown away. Having Boehner and McConnell controlling the House and Senate is ruining it for America, and it’s ruining it for the Republican party!
    Voters fired Dems/Progressives all over America, in November 2014 for a reason.

    Orrin Hatch, Lindsay Graham and Jeff Flake need to be defeated. They are traitors to this Republic.
