WASHINGTON Jan 9 Senate Democratic leader Chuck
Schumer on Monday pushed against rushing through confirmation
hearings scheduled this week for at least seven of
President-elect Donald Trump's Cabinet nominees, saying the
nominees need a thorough vetting.
"Jamming all these hearings into one or two days, making
members run from committee to committee, makes no sense,"
Schumer said in a speech. "It is only fair that they are given a
thorough and thoughtful vetting."
