In an interview with Fox News, former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, said he thinks the president’s cabinet confirmation hearings will be successful.
When asked by host Maria Bartiromo what to expect from the highly anticipated hearings, Gingrich stated that while there will probably be “a couple of big fights,” Trump’s cabinet picks will go through.
“The left will try to go after Sessions a little bit, probably go after Tillerson. But on balance, I think Mitch McConnell has arranged this perfectly. He’s putting so many of these initial hearings at the same time, it would be almost impossible to draw any solid drama.”
“Most of them will go through totally unscathed.”
