Statement of Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson on the Confirmation of

Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General

 

“I congratulate Loretta Lynch on her historic confirmation as Attorney General of the United States.  I had the honor to serve with Loretta in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.  She’s an extraordinary prosecutor, possesses great integrity and will be relentless in protecting the interests of the American people. I have no doubt that Loretta will serve our nation with honor and distinction.
