PA-Sen: Toomey to Oppose Confirmation of Loretta Lynch
In an email to supporters, Toomey cited his “concerns about whether she would uphold the rule of law and defend the Constitution in the face of President Obama’s executive actions.”
“When pressed on whether she thought the Obama Administration’s unilateral executive action granting legal status and work permits to more than 4 million illegal immigrants,” Toomey wrote. “Lynch said that President Obama had the legal authority to do so.”
Toomey maintained that Lynch “couldn’t be more wrong” about her statement regarding Obama’s legal authority to use executive actions. The Senator originally made these charges back in February and apparently has not changed his mind.
“The Attorney General represents the American people, not the President,” the Senator concluded.
