Sen. Rand Paul To Oppose Loretta Lynch for U.S. Attorney General

February 5, 2015 in Politics & Elections

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen. Rand Paul issued the following statement opposing the nomination of Loretta Lynch to the position of U.S. Attorney General:

‘Mrs. Lynch has a track-record of violating the individual freedoms granted to us by our Constitution. She considers civil asset forfeiture to be a ‘useful tool,’ while I consider it to be an infringement on the Fifth Amendment. She remains non-committal on the legality of drone strikes against American citizens, while I believe such strikes unequivocally violate rights granted to us by the Sixth Amendment. Mrs. Lynch also supports President Obama’s calls for executive amnesty, which I vehemently oppose,’ Sen. Paul said. ‘The Attorney General must operate independent of politics, independent of the president and under the direction of the Constitution. I cannot support a nominee, like Mrs. Lynch, who rides roughshod on our Constitutional rights.’
