— Loretta Lynch is confirmed as Obama’s new Attorney General
“Eric Holder began disregarding the Constitution and laws after he was confirmed as Attorney General. Ms. Lynch has [already] told the Senate that’s what she’s going to do.” — Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), speaking in opposition to Lynch’s nomination on the Senate floor, April 23, 2015
ACTION: See below to contact Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to express your deep displeasure with his role in pushing the confirmation of anti-gun Loretta Lynch.
Mitch McConnell leads the betrayal, joins with Harry Reid to support Lynch
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his leadership team put a big, fat knife in the back of gun owners in connection with the confirmation of anti-gun Attorney General Loretta Lynch today.
Close to 50 senators had announced their intention to vote against Lynch’s nomination, and pro-gun senators were filibustering Lynch.
Not only that, GOA was prepared to work with Senators to invoke a parliamentary maneuver which would have killed Lynch’s nomination, because in the weeks leading up to the vote today, she didn’t have the 60 votes necessary to shut off a filibuster under Rule XXII of the Senate rules.
In fact, 43 Senators ultimately voted against Lynch, which would have been enough votes to continue a filibuster and keep her from being confirmed. But more on that below.
* You can see which Senators VOTED TO FILIBUSTER the Lynch nomination here.
* And, you can view the FINAL CONFIRMATION vote here.
In both cases, a “NO” vote is the pro-gun vote.
FK – At least Paul voted the right way. Mccommie either has late stage oldtimers disease or it’s been a commie/NWO hack plant all along.
FK – Looks like it’s time to buy more ammo.
