Obama says that the United States will be in a better position to keep its citizens and the country safe now that Loretta Lynch has been confirmed as the next US Attorney General.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The United States will be in a better position to keep its citizens and the country safe now that Loretta Lynch has been confirmed as the next US Attorney General, US President Barack Obama said in a statement on Thursday.

“Today, the Senate finally confirmed Loretta Lynch to be America’s next Attorney General — and America will be better off for it,” Obama said. “Loretta’s confirmation ensures that we are better positioned to keep our communities safe, keep our nation secure, and ensure that every American experiences justice under the law.”

On Thursday, the US Senate confirmed federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch as the next US Attorney General after nearly six months of delaying Obama’s nominee approval.

Lynch’s confirmation makes her the first African American woman to hold the position of attorney general in the United States. She will replace incumbent US Attorney General Eric Holder, whose tenure was marked by several controversies that made him a target of Republican criticism.

In January 2015, Lynch said during a Senate confirmation hearing that, if nominated as US Attorney General, she would prioritize combating terrorism, cyber-crime, and building trust between law enforcement and communities.

President Obama nominated Lynch for the position on November 8, 2014, which makes her confirmation the longest pending than any other modern US Attorney General nominee.
