Republicans want to rush Donald Trump's nominees through the confirmation process before they've been fully vetted by the public and government ethics watchdogs. Add your name and stand with Senate Democrats to demand a full and thorough review of Trump's nominees:


Anne --

Senate Republicans want to ram Donald Trump's Cabinet nominees through the Senate as fast as they can before the public has time to vet them.

That's not how this process works, and Trump's Cabinet picks are too dangerous to give them the benefit of the doubt. Take for instance Trump's choice to be Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, whose only foreign policy "credential" seems to be his long-time friendship with Vladimir Putin. And nothing should be easy about making Jeff Sessions, who made his career by turning the courts against civil rights activists and ignoring voter disenfranchisement in black communities in Alabama, as the next Attorney General.

Republicans have scheduled confirmation hearings for Tillerson, Sessions, and several of Trump's other nominees all for this week. By holding all the hearings at once, they hope that they can cram these nominees down our throats before we have time to object. Senate Democrats are going to make sure that doesn't happen -- but they need to know we have their backs.

Anne, stand with Senate Democrats and demand a full and thorough review of Trump's nominees:


Thanks,
