GOP Holds Loretta Lynch Confirmation Vote Hostage over Unrelated Abortion Flap
The Christian Science Monitor: McConnell vows: no vote on attorney general until abortion flap solved, by Mark Sappenfield:

That could be a long wait.
It’s not that she said something controversial about abortion at confirmation hearings. In fact, the abortion issue has nothing at all to do with Loretta Lynch. . . .
