McConnell: Dems Delaying Confirmations ‘to Play to Their Left-Wing Base’
McCONNELL: "You all are following what's going on here. If it wasn't one thing, it would be another. The effort has been to delay the nominations that they have made controversial as long as possible in order to play to their left-wing base, which will not accept the results of the election. Pruitt was given ample time for hearings. He ended up having to get out of committee without any Democrats there because they refused to do their job and show up at the committee. We had the same problem with Mnuchin over in finance."
