https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...ut-keeping-loretta-lynch-as-attorney-general/...from deep inside a New York Times report over the holiday weekend, comes at a particularly poor time for Lynch — and, by extension, the Clinton campaign:Having women make up half of [Clinton's] cabinet would be historic (in recent years, a quarter to a third of cabinet positions have been held by women), and Democrats close to Mrs. Clinton say she may decide to retain Ms. Lynch, the nation’s first black woman to be attorney general, who took office in April 2015.
Even Democrats acknowledged the tarmac meeting was a bad idea, and Lynch and Bill Clinton have both said they wouldn't do it again. Acknowledging the "shadow" the meeting has cast over the investigation, Lynch now says she will accept whatever the investigators' recommendations are.
Heartbreaking that our first female African American AG might not be able to keep her position in the possible case of a Hillary presidency. What else should be her reward? Highly paid speeches for Goldman Sachs? A prominent position at the Clinton Foundation?
