Attorney General Loretta Lynch will visit a controversial Virginia mosque next week, likely as a response to a recent FBI report that found a spike in anti-Muslim hate crimes in the U.S.
The visit to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center (ADAMS) will mark Lynch's first to a mosque since she took over the Justice Department last year. And that will be one visit more than the number she has paid to a synagogue. That despite there being two-and-a-half times as many hate crimes against Jews reported last year than against Muslims.
No details have been provided about Lynch's visit or for why ADAMS was chosen.
