At his weekly news conference Tuesday, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he “hoped” the Senate could advance an anti-human trafficking measure and move to the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be attorney general, adding that fast-track trade authorization and the U.S.-Iranian nuclear negotiations will also be on the agenda in the coming weeks. “I continue to hope we can get pass the dilemma that you’ve all witnessed on the trafficking bill and go forward with that and then turn to the Lynch nomination,” McConnell said. “I know there are people on both sides of the aisle trying to figure out how to get pass the impasse, and I hope they can do that and I wish them well.”
