AG Lynch: President Will Call On Congress to Take Action on Guns in San Bernardino Address
In an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," Attorney General Loretta Lynch previewed the remarks President Barack Obama will make when he speaks to the country Sunday evening about the recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino.
"What you're going to hear from him is a discussion about what government is doing to ensure all of our highest priority — the protection of the American people," the attorney general said.
She also said that he'll speak on the actions the United States has taken to keep the homeland safe since the attacks in Paris last month. But there will be an element of politics to the speech.
President Obama will do more than just call for calm, he will ask "Congress to review measures and take action."
Lynch's staff later confirmed that the president will specifically call on Congress to review certain gun control measures.
Lynch also reiterated that the San Bernardino investigation is a "terrorism investigation" because of the "indications that we do have of radicalization."
