Loretta Lynch to Get a Vote This Week

Attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch, who testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee in January as part of her confirmation process, will reportedly receive a vote from the Senate later this week

"I'm glad we can now say there is a bipartisan proposal that will allow us to complete action on this important legislation," Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday morning about a bill combating human trafficking that has become entangled in partisan bickering. "As soon as we finish the trafficking bill ... we'll move to the president's nominee for attorney general hopefully in the next day or so."

In February, Lynch was approved by the Judiciary Committee 12-8. Despite expressing support for President Obama's executive action on illegal immigration, she is expected to be approved by the full Senate.

UPDATE: It should be noted Lynch's nomination has been stalled as a result of Democrats filibustering a human trafficking bill. You can read more about that here.
