Senators Are Worried About How Trump Is Picking His Cabinet Secretaries

April 24, 2018, Buzzfeed

Robert Kelner is quoted in a Buzzfeed article regarding Senators' concerns about the White House’s vetting process for cabinet secretaries. According to Kelner, the Trump Administration still does an ethical vet, which includes disclosing financial holdings and is required by law, but has not focused that much on a political vetting. “This Administration sometimes does less political vetting than other presidents,” Kelner says. “It does put the Senate in a position of doing more of the vetting that in the past would have been done by the White House, and it also puts the nominees in a difficult position,” he adds. “In earlier years, things would have been flagged beforehand, now issues tend to pop up later on.”
