Loretta Lynch Testifying Jeff Sessions

It pains me to come to the conclusion that Loretta Lynch should not be confirmed as our next Attorney General.

As I wrote before, Lynch was a law school classmate. While we were not “friends,” we were acquaintances. I have only good memories of her, and it does not surprise me that...

William A. Jacobson Cornell Legal Insurrection Point of View Radio

The Obama administration has admitted it dropped the ball when it came to not sending any senior administration official to the Paris Solidarity March.

The latest iteration is that no one apparently told the President that this was going to be a big deal.

Huh? This is the President who has made a...
