The Trump cabal has nominated an incredible collection of hacks, imbeciles, crooks and sleazebags to serve in their thug boss’s cabinet—but they can’t seem to get them confirmed by the Senate!
Politico reports that so far, only Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly have been approved. Right-wing Representative Mike Pompeo of Kansas was supposed to take over the CIA, but Democratic Senators have successfully delayed his nomination.
In 2009, Barack Obama got seven cabinet nominees approved on his first day in office. But the corruption and criminality of Trump’s picks is so blatant, the process is slowing down substantially.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor, “We intend to have a full and rigorous debate on the president’s remaining nominees. If there was ever a group of Cabinet nominees that cry out for rigorous scrutiny, it’s this one.”
Among the controversial nominees are Russia-loving Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, who Putin puppet Trump wants to be his Secretary of State; bribe-taking, insider-trading Tom Price for Health and Human Services; and Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin, who failed to disclose $100 million in assets to the Senate!
The longer we can keep these kinds of criminals out of our government, the better!
Share this story so our Senators will continue blocking this kind of corruption!
