America has been anxiously awaiting the announcement of Trump’s choice of Attorney General, but we may have forgotten one important detail: No matter who he picks, Loretta Lynch is getting the boot!
In case you needed another reason to get her excited about her impending unemployment, we’ve got your back.
Current Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a video decrying the recent increase of hate crimes in the United States. The FBI reports an increase of hate crimes against Muslim-Americans from 154-257 in 2015. A total increase of 6% of all hate crimes was also reported.
In the video, Lynch seemed to refer to the rash that took place after the election of Donald Trump.
“Beyond these 2015 statistics, I know that many Americans are concerned by a spate of recent news reports about alleged hate crimes and harassment,” Lynch said. “Some of these incidents have happened in schools. Others have targeted houses of worship. And some have singled out individuals for attacks and intimidation.”
Watch the video below. [WARNING: You may want to punch your screen after the first few seconds. Don’t do that.]
While literally ANYBODY would be more acceptable for this job than Lynch, Donald Trump has tapped Sen. Jeff Sessions to become his administration’s first (and hopefully only) Attorney General.
In 2009, Sessions opposed a hate crimes law to which Congress had attached a defense budget bill. While it later passed, the incoming AG had some very strong opinions on the legislation that (despite what the left would have you believe) didn’t include minorities being assaulted for who they are.
“There is no good reason to pass such a broad piece of legislation,” he said.
“No one believes that individuals should be assaulted because of their beliefs, their gender or their sexual orientation. That type of behavior is unacceptable and should be prosecuted. It has been prosecuted. I am sure State and local law enforcement officers will continue to do so,” he said then.
Sessions labeled the hate crime bill “one of the largest expansions of Federal law enforcement in history” and said the attorney general “should not allow politics to drive law in America.”
I personally feel great that we’re going to have a small-government Attorney General who has a great chance of actually getting things done in America and prosecuting all the right people without letting them off the hook simply because of their political persuasion.
I wonder who Trump will pick next!
