Presidential contender Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to lambaste congressional Republicans on Monday for working against women by delaying the nomination of a female attorney general, a human-trafficking bill, and “threatening” women’s health and rights. In what she called a “trifecta against women,” Clinton referred to the nomination of Loretta Lynch for attorney general, which has been delayed over a spat regarding a bipartisan human-trafficking bill. Democrats object to an abortion provision while Sen. Mitch McConnell has said that the nomination would not be addressed until the legislation moves forward.
Congressional trifecta against women today: 1) Blocking great nominee, 1st African American woman AG, for longer than any AG in 30 years…— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 16, 2015
...2) Playing politics with trafficking victims… 3) Threatening women's health & rights.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 16, 2015
