Rudy Giuliani Tells His Party To Stop Blocking Loretta Lynch's
WASHINGTON -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said Friday that Loretta Lynch is an "extraordinary" nominee for U.S. attorney general, and called on Senate Republicans to stop holding up her confirmation vote.
In a call with reporters, Giuliani said he is a "very dedicated Republican" and doesn't always agree with President Barack Obama. But he does think that a president should be able to get his or her appointees confirmed by the Senate.
"The confirmation process has been really tremendously distorted. … It's become Republicans torture Democrats, Democrats torture Republicans. Who started it, God knows," he said. "But as a Republican and looking at the Constitution, I find Loretta Lynch not only to be an acceptable appointment, but I find her to be an extraordinary appointment."
