President Obama will announce his intention to nominate Loretta Lynch, the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday.
“Ms. Lynch is a strong, independent prosecutor who has twice led one of the most important U.S. Attorney’s Offices in the country,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement.
“She will succeed Eric Holder, whose tenure has been marked by historic gains in the areas of criminal justice reform and civil rights enforcement,” he added.
