USA Sex Trafficking
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced today that negotiators had reached a bipartisan deal on a bill to fight human trafficking, clearing the way for a vote to confirm attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch "hopefully in the next day or so."
"I'm glad we can say there is a bipartisan proposal that will allow us to complete action on this important legislation, so we can provide help to the victims who desperately need it," He said on the Senate floor.
McConnell said that "As soon as we finish the trafficking bill," Senators will take up Lynch's confirmation vote.
No other nominee for attorney general has had to wait this long for Senate confirmation -- 164 days -- since Ronald Reagan was in the White House. Ref. CNN
