Loretta Lynch Formally Sworn In on Frederick Douglass’s Bible

Loretta Lynch was formally sworn in as attorney general today, after a busy two months involving FIFA, civil rights in Baltimore, and several other high-profile issues. Lynch was sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor — on a bible owned by Frederick Douglass.

When Lynch mentioned this to President Obama on the stage of the Warner Theater in Washington, with friends and family in the audience, he replied, “That’s pretty cool.”
