W.H.: Schumer’s ‘Hyper-Political Delay’ of Nominees Puts American National Security in ‘Jeopardy’

‘We will continue highlighting more of these examples of Democrat obstruction in the days ahead’

EXCERPT:

HUCKABEE SANDERS: "Take, for instance, Ric Grenell, the president’s nominee to serve as ambassador to Germany. Mr. Grenell, a Harvard-educated experienced diplomat was the longest serving U.S. spokesperson at the United Nations. He was nominated in September of last year. He was reported out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee with bipartisan support. He's waiting to represent America’s interests and be our country’s top voice in a G-7 country. In short, Senator Schumer’s hyper political delay on Mr. Grenell puts our national security and America’s foreign policy interests in jeopardy. The Senate should move to confirm him immediately. We will continue highlighting more of these examples of Democrat obstruction in the days ahead."
