WHAT IS CURRENT IN DC




The Washington circus continues. Today, Wednesday, the Senate confirmed to become secretary of state by a 56-43. Four Democrats crossed the party line.

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday voted 11 to 9 to advance the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) as attorney general.

On the other hand “The Finance Committee approved Steve Mnuchin as Treasury secretary and Rep. Tom Price as Health and Human Services secretary, with (only) all Republicans on the committee present and voting to advance the nominees to the Senate floor. Committee Chair Orrin Hatch said the move to suspend the rules was approved by the Senate parliamentarian.” (USA Today).

What disturbs me most is that white supremacy Bannon seems to be running the show. Not only was he given a seat on the National Security Council, but the Joint Chief of Staffs and the director of national intelligence were removed as permanent members! No Civilian has ever merited such power.
Apparently son in law Jared Kushner and Daughter Ivanka Trump influence has been pushed aside by Bannon since the Muslim Ban was posted on the Sabbath
 
They were not the only ones who seem to have been out of the loop. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly while admitting he had seen earlier drafts had not received the final order until just as it was being enforce
