Rove: If Dems Want To Be Obstructionists They Can Use Senate Rules to Slow Trump Nominations

‘If they want to be obstructionists, they can use the Senate rules to slow this process up’

HEGSETH: "Carl, today the 150th Congress is sworn in, they're going to get to work with a flurry of activity, but Democrats have announced up to eight cabinet picks that they’re going to oppose in what looks like an unprecedented attempt to block potential nominees. Have you seen anything of this size and scope you think they can try to drag it out all the way into March as they talked about, in opposing some of these picks? How do you see this unfolding?" 
ROVE: "Yeah. Look, they can. If they want to be obstructionists, they can use the Senate rules to slow this process up some and delay President Trump being able to put his administration in power and having people in the agencies running these things and moving forward with his policies. They can do that."
