Loretta Lynch Confirmed As First Woman AG
April 23, 2015


The US Senate has confirmed the nomination of Loretta Lynch as the next Attorney General.

Her confirmation means she will be the first black woman to take up the post.

The 56-43 vote comes after a five-month delay during which the confirmation became entangled in a dispute over President Barack Obama's recent immigration reforms and other issues.
