A little over a month after former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder resigned, President Obama seems to have made up his mind for a successor. According to multiple sources, the next U.S. Attorney General expected to be chosen is Loretta Lynch, a U.S. Attorney from Brooklyn, New York.
This would be a huge move for many reasons:
- Loretta Lynch would be the 1st African American woman (second woman) to ever serve as Attorney General.
- Her experience as a Prosecutor could help dilute tensions or any unlawful cases such as the current Mike Brown investigation.
Lynch was appointed in 2010 to New York’s eastern district by President Obama.
