- CRITTER TALK
First up on Tuesday, at 9:30 a.m. ET, is Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), who Trump has nominated to be attorney general. At 3:30 p.m. ET, hearings for retired Marine Corps General John Kelly, Trump’s choice for secretary of homeland security, will commence.
Despite the Office of Government Ethics raising concerns that the confirmation schedule puts “undue pressure” on the office to “rush through” its reviews of nominees, Republicans have vowed to go forward with the hearings.
Confirmation hearings for Betsy DeVos, Elaine Chao, James Mattis, Ben Carson, and Wilbur Ross, Jr. are slated for Wednesday and Thursday.Click here for reuse options!
