The White House announced last week it had reached what it described as an "outline" of a program to curb Iran's nuclear programs in return for lifting of economic sanctions.

The Senate also has the power, indeed, the obligation to reject those nominees unfit for service. We believe that Loretta Lynch, who has been nominated by the President to serve as the nation's next Attorney General, falls in the unfit category.
