There have been a lot of names floating around to be Obama’s pick to replace the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
Several renowned leftists have been under consideration,including Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
And a decision has been made about Lynch’s potential nomination
Attorney General Loretta Lynch has asked the White House not to consider her for the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death last month of Justice Antonin Scalia, a Justice Department spokeswoman said Tuesday.
“As the conversation around the Supreme Court vacancy progressed, the Attorney General determined that the limitations inherent in the nomination process would curtail her effectiveness in her current role, Given the urgent issues before the Department of Justice, she asked not to be considered for the position,” Justice spokeswoman Melanie Newman said in a statement.
Lynch had been mentioned on various lists of potential Supreme Court nominees, but reports in recent days suggested she was no longer under active consideration.
This means the President is narrowing down his potential picks, and his nomination should be expected any day now.
Senate Republicans have already vowed not to hold any hearings or voters, regardless of who the nominee is.
