Loretta Lynch will be sworn in as attorney general Monday.

The US Senate confirmed her last week in a 56-43 vote.

Republicans had refused to bring her nomination up for a vote until Democrats cut a deal on abortion language in an unrelated bill.

Lynch is the first African-American woman to be attorney general.

She replaces Eric Holder who stepped down after six years on the job.
