Sen. Jack Reed says Senate still waiting for nomination following Patrick Shanahan’s hearing delay

June 18, 2019 | 4:56 PM GMT
Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), ranking member on the Senate Armed Services Committee, says the Senate is still waiting for a nomination from the President following news that Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan’s confirmation hearing had been delayed amidst an ongoing FBI background check and as the Pentagon has been fielding press reports about his personal life. “We’re still waiting on nomination from the President…Anything that would happen would probably be weeks from now even if the nomination came up within the next few days.”
