U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement today after Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted that the Obama Administration is currently prohibited by law from transferring terrorists at Guantanamo Bay to the United States.

“President Obama’s Attorney General and Secretary of Defense have now publicly affirmed what the American people already know— the President is bound by the law and cannot transfer terrorists to the United States. Today’s comments from the Attorney General are a welcome break from an Administration that frequently circumvents the rule of law.”
