Mitch McConnell Gets Table Turned Thanks To Chuck Schumer
There is not much to smile at in the news these days. But this made my mouth wide with a grin.
Senate Minority Leader Schumer has returned an identical letter that Senate Majority Leader McConnell sent to Harry Reid in 2009 on the Cabinet nomination process, calling on Republicans Monday to comply with the same conditions Republicans demanded when it came to President Obama’s nominees. At the time, McConnell was the minority leader and Democrats controlled the nomination process. The New York Democrat read the original letter aloud on the Senate floor and then posted the returned one on Twitter a day before Donald Trump’s nominees are set to begin flooding Capitol Hill for their Senate confirmation hearings.
