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.
