美国总统奥巴马提名纽约联邦检察官洛蕾塔•林奇为司法部长,作为美国最高执法官员并成为内阁中的一员。

奥巴马总统星期六宣布这一提名时说,林奇是担任这一公职的最佳人选。他说,林奇在30年的职业生涯中以作为一名强硬、公正和独立的律师而闻名,她毫不留情地与恐怖主义、金融诈骗和网络犯罪做斗争,与此同时坚定地捍卫公民权利。

如果获得国会参议院的批准,林奇将接替即将离任的司法部长埃里克•霍尔德,成为第一位非洲裔女司法部长。霍尔德是美国的第一位男性非洲裔司法部长。

林奇目前是纽约布鲁克林的首席检察长,这一区域为美国司法系统中的纽约东区。林奇星期六与奥巴马总统和霍尔德一同在白宫露面,她保证,如果获得批准,她将为保障美国公民和他们的自由与权利而工作。

Obama Selects Veteran US Prosecutor for Attorney General

U.S. President Barack Obama has named New York federal prosecutor Loretta Lynch to join his Cabinet as attorney general, the nation's top law enforcement official.

Announcing the nomination Saturday, President Obama said he can think of "no better public servant" for the job. Throughout her 30-year career, he said Lynch has distinguished herself as a "tough," "fair" and "independent" lawyer, "aggressively fighting" terrorism, financial fraud and cybercrime, "all while vigorously defending civil rights."

If confirmed by the Senate, Lynch would replace outgoing attorney general Eric Holder and become the first African-American woman to head the Justice Department. Holder was the first African-American man in the post.

Lynch currently is the chief U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, New York - known as the Eastern District of New York in the U.S. court system. Appearing with President Obama and Holder at the White House Saturday, she pledged that if confirmed, she will work every day to safeguard American citizens and their liberties and rights.
