confirmationprocessOne area of government in which we especially need extreme vetting is in the confirmation process for cabinet nominees. The current Republican-controlled Senate has utterly failed to do that. The level of scrutiny being done for President Trump’s nominees is a joke, historically speaking. This opens up the likelihood that we will have several cabinet members who bring serious ethical issues with them (a number of ethical questions were raised but not answered), and simple incompetence (several of the nominees are plainly unqualified for the job).
