    I've googled this but can't find the answer. Jeff Sessions is being interviewed (grilled by some D's) by a Judiciary Cmte. So when (what date) does the entire senate vote on Sessions?

    Same question for all the other cabinet nominees.......

    Thanks

    There is no "date", all nominees will have their interviews and their confirmation votes at different times.

    First the committee decides if it goes to the full Senate then the Senate votes. Different committees take different times.

    So, I've been out for a while ... and don't know where the cmte stands on questioning Jeff Sessions........ Are they done with the questions, and if so will Jeff S now go before the full Senate for conformation? Any know the status of this?

    I see Gen. John Kelly is now before some senate cmte...... don't know which one.

    Thanks

    Last I saw a few hours ago they were questioning him and there were plans for other witnesses. Maybe a few days.

    Sessions hearings are planned from the start to continue for 2 days. All other nominees scheduled are planned for 1 day but could run over.

    Democrats will drag out each one as long as they can, in order to fight against Trump.

    Republicans confirmed most of Obama's on day one, with the rest about a week later.

    Including TAX CHEAT Timothy Geithner to be Secretary of the Treasury, but he had to pay back what he stole.
