"Mr. President, today we will be considering the President's nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. Last month I said the Senate would consider this nominee as soon as we passed an all-important antislavery bill, and today we will consider the nominee.

Trade Promotion Authority April 23, 2015

The chairman and ranking member of that committee, Senator Hatch and Senator Wyden, worked hard to achieve the result we saw last night."
