According to CNN:
As Common Dreams reported, the wealthy nominees’ financial conflicts of interest could also prove to be a stumbling block. Last month, 16 leading Democrats demanded that each confirmation only move forward if the nominee has cleared an FBI background check; provided a complete financial disclosure; submitted an ethics agreement approved by the Office of Government Ethics; and “satisfied reasonable requests for additional information” that lawmakers have time to review.
On Twitter last week, Schumer noted that while the Senate now has tax returns from Mnuchin and Price, “we’re still waiting on Tillerson & rest of Cabinet.”
While it remains unclear exactly how Democrats could gum up the confirmation works, Politico reported:
The Post points out: “Absent from the Democratic hit list are retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis, the pick for defense secretary; South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, whom Trump has nominated to serve as ambassador to the United Nations; and John Kelly, a former Marine general and Trump’s selection to lead the Department of Homeland Security, signaling that all three should expect little trouble from Democrats.”
