Republicans Push Easing U.S. Senate Rules to Help Trump Nominations

According to Reuters, Republicans in the U.S. Senate will attempt to alter its rules next week in order to accelerate the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s nominees for some judgeships and sub-Cabinet level positions.

Democrats, who control 47 of the Senate’s 100 seats, have slowed the confirmation of scores of such appointees.

Now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell aims to stage a vote early next week to reduce the time allowed for debating nominations from 30 hours to two hours.
