Heads up: We’re heading into a bunch of Trump cabinet confirmations – and I mean a bunch. Like seven. Plus Trump has scheduled his first press conference in almost two hundred days or something crazy like that on Wednesday, when there are five hearings scheduled.
What you’re seeing here is a great big song and dance with lots of sparkly lights and fireworks to distract you and the press from the fact that the incoming Trump administration and the GOP are trying to ram through Trump’s awful cabinet as fast as possible with as little investigation as possible.
A few quick things to keep in mind:
- Having a bunch of confirmations all at once isn’t illegal, or even particularly unusual. It’s just a crappy way to do business. Read this.
- The ethics investigations of Trump’s cabinet picks are done yet. It kinda seems like the cabinet picks have been actively avoiding the ethics guys. No big shock there. Read this.
- Now would be a good time to call your senators, particularly if you’ve got a Republican in the senate, and let them know you’d like to see these guys actually investigated properly.
