McCain Poised to Press Obama, and Pentagon, at Armed Services Helm

November 8, 2014, The New York Times

Covington's Roger Zakheim is quoted regarding Senator McCain, who is expected to assume the chairmanship of the Senate Armed Services Committee:

“There is one commander in chief,” said Roger Zakheim, a former general counsel for the House Armed Services Committee’s Republican leadership, who is a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. “Having said that, you can drive debates when you have the gavel.” 

"Mr. Zakheim said the Senate Armed Services chairman 'has the authority to call hearings and drive investigations, and to promote and shape the policies that he thinks are necessary.'"
