According to The New York Times this weekend, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plans to keep Attorney General Loretta Lynch around in her administration if she wins in November.
Per the Times, Clinton plans to build a cabinet that will be exactly half women. Accordingly, “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.”
As Attorney General, Lynch is currently in charge of overseeing an FBI investigation of Clinton’s email server. Critics recently raised questions about Lynch’s role in that investigation after she privately met with former President Bill Clinton on a Phoenix tarmac. Lynch insists that meeting was mostly personal, with conversation centering around her and Clinton’s grandchildren.
