GOP wants to approve Twamp's swamp before they are vetted

The Office of Government Ethics warned that Republicans are now trying to hold confirmation hearings for Twamp's swamp before the nominees have been properly vetted for conflicts of interest and background checks. This is an unprecedented bypass of procedure. Once again we see their true colors and once again we have to call them in droves to express our disapproval of their own complete lack of ethics.

Senator Warren has also weighed in on this, saying:

"Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership are desperately trying to rush Senate confirmation hearings for President-elect Trump’s cabinet nominees. But they are bypassing important steps to make sure that these billionaire nominees are free of dangerous conflicts of interest – and Senate tradition. Hearings are historically not conducted until the nonpartisan Office of Government Ethics has certified that each nominee has no unresolved conflicts."
