McCain: ‘No Republican Should Vote for’ Loretta Lynch

Senator John McCain said rather strongly today that not a single Republican senator should vote for Loretta Lynch because of her views on President Obama‘s executive orders.

McCain brought the topic up to Hugh Hewitt on his radio show today, bringing up how Lynch referred to Obama’s executive actions as “reasonable.”

To McCain, this is incredibly disqualifying. He said, “No Republican should vote for her confirmation, because she is going to implement what the president himself said 22 times would be unconstitutional actions.”

He also said that Lynch shouldn’t even be voted on until the Senate passes a human trafficking bill. The delay on Lynch’s nomination has earned Republicans some words of frustration from President Obama and Democratic senators, one of whom used a civil rights phrase to attack the GOP over the delay.

There are, however, some Republican supporters of Lynch’s nomination, including Rudy Giuliani.
