While some legal experts and political pundits predict legal consequences are just around the corner for former President Donald Trump’s actions related to the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is waiting patiently for justice to be served.

“It’s too early to make that determination,” she said about possible jail time for Trump.

“If I was still sitting in the seat, I’d be doing what AG [Merrick] Garland is doing now, which is building cases against everyone involved,” Lynch continued. “But I’ll also be looking very carefully at the causes and instigators of that of that insurrection. And we’ve seen him do that.”

In a wide-ranging interview with GBH News reporter Saraya Wintersmith, Lynch also shared her thoughts on Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court — a role then-Attorney General Lynch was poised to be nominated for following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.

“I think the right person is in that seat at the right time,” she said. “I look at Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, really, as this generation’s Thurgood Marshall. He was often in the minority. He was often in the dissent. But his voice still speaks loud today.”

Wintersmith also asked Lynch about her position at the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, where she was involved in auditing major companies’ diversity, equity and inclusion practices — many of which were introduced following the murder of George Floyd.

“Stakeholders in this process — you know, customers, employees, community members, shareholders — began to turn to companies and say, ‘Tell us how your programs are doing. Are you really having an impact?’” Lynch explained.

“So we’re helping a number of companies really assess the impact of so much of the work they’ve been doing over the past few years. And that’s an important part of continuing that work and pushing that work forward.”
