Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today said he plans to hold up a vote on the confirmation of attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch until the Senate passes a now-controversial human trafficking bill.

"This will have an impact on the timing of considering a new attorney general," McConnell told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." "I had hoped to turn to her next week, but if we can't finish the trafficking bill, she will be put off again."

Democrats are now holding up the trafficking bill, which glided through the Judiciary Committee, after they noticed an abortion provision embedded in the bill.

A spokesman for Minority Leader Harry Reid slammed McConnell for holding up Lynch's nomination.

"There is nothing stopping the Senate from confirming Lynch and continuing to debate the trafficking bill this week, except Senator McConnell's unwillingness to bring her nomination up for a vote," Spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. "No more excuses, no more delays. Confirm Loretta Lynch now." Ref. CNN

Strange that this is only now coming to the public even though Mitch has been in politics like forever. Surely someone must have known this before.

Sen. Lindsey Graham says McConnell’s speech blasting Trump will haunt the Republican party: 'That speech you will see in 2022 campaigns'. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's speech castigating former President Donald Trump for "Dereliction of duty" in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol would be used against Republican candidates in the 2022 election. "He got a load off his chest, obviously, but unfortunately he put a load on the back of Republicans,” Graham said of McConnell. Ref. USAToday.

I hardly think anyone could feel sorry for Mitch after watching that whole trial, voting to acquit Trump and then turning around and then saying in a round about way that legal action should be taken against him for causing the insurrection.
