Deal Reached on Sex Trafficking and Lynch

Loretta_LynchRepublicans and Democrats came together to reach compromise on two contested issues – Loretta Lynch and sex trafficking legislation.

For the last week, the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General has been stalled while Democrats held up a bill intended to help the victims of sex trafficking.

The bill was set to make it unlawful for any fines paid by sex traffickers to be used to pay for abortions. Democrats disagreed and the tension began.

In order to force compromises on the sex trafficking bill, Republicans hold Loretta Lynch’s confirmation up until an agreement could be reached.

Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Patty Murray (D-WA) sat down and hashed out the base agreement with help from others.

The sex trafficking bill is set for a vote today and the Lynch nomination could move forward as soon as Wednesday.

The final deal gave both sides what they were looking for: Republicans prevented sex trafficking money from going to pay for abortions and Democrats get the President his Attorney General.

She’s pretty much from the same mold as Holder….speaking of Holder….we haven’t heard from him lately. Guess he’s adding feathers to his nest….
