Some of the Senate confirmation hearings for President Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees haven’t been entirely cordial.
Democrats have been critical of a number of Trump’s picks and have delayed voting on some, including Tom Price and Steven Mnuchin. Republicans were forced to suspend a committee rule that required a Democrat to be present in order to move the nominations forward.
The full Senate later approved Price as health and human services secretary and Mnuchin as Treasury secretary, as well as other nominees, including Rick Perry as energy secretary, Ben Carson as secretary of housing and urban development, Scott Pruitt as EPA administrator, Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general, Betsy DeVos as education secretary and Rex Tillerson as secretary of state.
If you missed the hearings or just need a refresher on the main points, here’s a quick recap of each so far.
