Tell Sens. Flake & McCain: Thoroughly Vet Cabinet Nominees
Dear Senators Flake and McCain,
We, your constituents, hold grave concerns regarding the proposed "fast-tracking" of the president-elect's Cabinet nominees. The current Senate plan to ram these questionable nominations forward without proper vetting undermines the confidence of the American people and poses a clear and present danger to the future of our nation.
The president-elect's slate of nominations consists predominantly of wealthy business executives whose only qualifications appear to be making billions of dollars off the industries they’re being nominated to regulate. Furthermore, the president-elect has declined to vet these nominees and provide thorough paper trails in the customary manner of previous new administrations, which makes thorough Congressional review all the more crucial.
It is not acceptable to the American people for the Senate to "fast-track" these nominees. We demand a thorough and transparent hearing process for each nominee, with background information and financial records submitted in ample time for Congressional review and public comment before any votes are scheduled. Each nominee must pass a rigorous FBI background check, submit financial disclosure statements, cooperate with ethics investigations, and undergo thorough review into potential conflicts of interest or outstanding tax matters that could expose them to criminal prosecution.
