Schumer Demands Biden Cabinet Hearings Before Inauguration

On Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated that the Senate should begin confirmation hearings for Joe Biden’s prospective cabinet before inauguration

“Hearings on President-elect Biden’s nominees should begin in January immediately after the Georgia runoff elections,” Schumer said.

Georgia’s upcoming runoff elections will decide if Republicans retain control of the Senate or if Democrats are the new majority.

Trump, Obama, And Bush All Had The Same Treatment

Schumer said this schedule would would allow major Cabinet picks to receive confirmation on Jan. 20 “and soon thereafter, which is traditional for a new president.”

He stated, “The Senate should follow precedent and hold hearings on President-elect Biden’s nominees in January immediately after the Georgia elections, before inauguration.”

President Trump’s cabinet picks had Senate hearings before his inauguration, though he faced more delays than usual compared to past incoming presidents. 

To compare: On the first day of the Trump administration, he got two confirmed Cabinet picks.

President Obama got six and President George W. Bush got seven on their first day stepping through the White House door.

How Bad Do Democrats Really Want ‘Unity’?

While Chuck Schumer and the Democrats are eager to get the ball rolling on a Joe Biden administration, the fact remains that this election has not been certified.

There is also the issue that tens of millions of Americans do not believe Joe Biden legitimately won the election.

A poll from PRWeb shows that 72% of Republicans and a whopping 31% of Independents believe President Trump “is being cheated out of the election.”

True or not, this is not healthy for our republican democracy.

Democrats Must Consider The State Of America

While it might be true that past President-elects had confirmation hearings for their cabinets before their inaugurations, Washington leaders should at least be sensitive to the emotional rawness felt by many Americans in how they perceive the ongoing election results.

If Democrats truly desire “unity,” they should take the national temperature into consideration.

We shall see how serious Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer really are about bringing this country together.

Actions speak louder than words.

  • He and ALL the conniving Demmunists are afraid Pres. Trump's team will uncover ENOUGH of their BLATANT VOTE THIEVERY and voter fraud to have the Supreme Court declare Pres. Trump the winner, before they are able to ILLEGALLY RUSH Biden into the Presidency--even BEFORE the electoral college has voted.

  • Schumer needs to sit down and SHUT UP. He is ONE of those who dragged out hearings on Pres. Trump's cabinet picks AD NAUSEUM and made him wait WEEKS AND MONTHS to fill vacancies in his cabinet. The Republicans should do the same for the Demmunist PUPPET, Senile Joe Biden!

    And NO cabinet hearings should be held, PERIOD, until SENILE JOE is actually, LEGALLY declared President, which status he has NOT yet been granted. They're trying to BUM RUSH Biden in before all their FRAUD and SKULLDUGGERY can be exposed that will change the outcome of this completely FRAUDULENT and BOGUS election that was RIFE with BLATANT cheating and vote-stealing by the conniving Demmunists!

  • "On the first day of the Trump administration, he got two confirmed Cabinet picks. President Obama got six and President George W. Bush got seven on their first day stepping through the White House door."

    The trend over time for confirmed Cabinet picks is downward: 7, 6, 2. This points to 0 or 1 for Biden if we follow the 'science of math'.

  • There should be NO hearings on cabinet positions until Schumer has been thoroughly investigated and profoundly eviscerated.

  • I had never heard that, was it rape? I can't imagine that he would appeal to any young girl or actually any age girl or woman.

  • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!! Right? How long did it take before Donald Trump had a full Cabinet? Did he ever have a full cabinet?  

    How dare Chuckie Cheese demand confirmations begin before this fraud of a selected president secure his full cabinet?

  • Is Schumer afraid Biden will die before the inauguration and can't get his entire cabinet picked and sworn into office and then he will have to deal with Harris? Harris won't be pushed around by Schumer or Pelosi and will do her best to get her radical Communists on her cabinet.
