Biden could be in for a long few months
Multiple Republican senators promised Tuesday that Joe Biden’s potential cabinet nominees will face harsh scrutiny from Republicans in the Senate, promising to repay Democrats for what they viewed as harsh treatment given to President Trump’s cabinet nominees four years ago. Specifically, they also indicated that any attempt to nominate the controversial Susan Rice for any cabinet position would be rejected by Republicans.
Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) appeared on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” Tuesday and discussed with Hewitt how a Republican Senate might treat cabinet nominees in a potential Biden administration. Specifically, both senators were asked about reports indicating that former president Barack Obama is pushing Biden to nominate former National Security Adviser Susan Rice to be secretary of state.
