A.G. Schneiderman Statement On Confirmation Of Loretta Lynch

NEW YORK — Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today released the following statement on the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General:

"I applaud the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the next Attorney General of the United States. I have supreme confidence that she will be an outstanding Attorney General. She has a tireless work ethic, a wide breadth of experience and a strong commitment to public service and ensuring that all Americans will be afforded equal justice under the law. I am pleased that the Senate has finally, after a record delay, recognized her strong qualifications for the office. And because she will be the first African-American woman to lead the Department of Justice, this is a historic day for the United States, and I am proud to call Ms. Lynch our next Attorney General."
