Senate nomination hearing for controversial Pentagon pick abruptly canceled

WASHINGTON, July 30 (Reuters) - The Senate nomination hearing for U.S. President Donald Trump’s most divisive nominee for a senior Pentagon post set for Thursday has been canceled, a committee website said.

The Senate Armed Services Committee which was set to hold the nomination hearing for Anthony Tata, a retired Army brigadier general and ardent defender of Trump on Fox News, said on its website that the hearing had been canceled.
