Senator Chuck Grassley, Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and likely incoming Chairman, made the following statement after meeting with Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch.

“This was the first time I’d had the opportunity to meet Ms. Lynch.  We had a very nice conversation that focused on my priorities as well as priorities she would have as Attorney General.  I look forward to continuing to learn more about Ms. Lynch’s background as we gather and review all of the relevant materials in advance of her appearance before the committee.”
