On Wednesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), member of the Senate Judiciary pointed to the numerous issues some Republicans have with the appointment of U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch to head the Department of Justice.
According to Sessions, Lynch, who seemed to back Obama’s so-called executive amnesty, faces risk of her confirmation.
“Well, I think there’s some chance of it, yes,” Sessions said. “We’ve got to think this through. Congress has a right to defend itself and its legitimate powers. The president asks it to pass certain immigration laws and Congress refused. So he’s doing it anyway. He’s not just not using — he’s not just using prosecutorial discretion, Megyn. What he’s providing is work authorization, Social Security benefits and Medicare that congress has just rejected.”
