U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch

United States Attorney's Office

Loretta Lynch, the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, is expected to be President Barack Obama’s pick for Attorney General, U.S. officials briefed on the matter told CNN. An announcement is expected in the coming days, though timing is complicated by the president’s plans to travel to Asia this weekend.

Lynch is a popular prosecutor who is in her second stint as US Attorney in New York’s eastern district, appointed by President Obama in 2010 and also serving in the same post from 1999-2001 under President Bill Clinton.
