  1. Lynch Confirmed as Attorney General

    They finally got around to making history. The U.S. Attorney for New York had been waiting for her confirmation for five months as Congressional Republicans held up voting on her in order to leverage a bill on human trafficking that contained some unpopular legislation on abortion. But they finally struck a deal, and Lynch will take office on Monday, the country’s first black female attorney general. She’s expected to face challenges right away, as America struggles to resolve the legal issues of systemic racism in police forces across the nation.
