Murkowski DELAYS Trump Appointments, a DEMOCRAT at Heart

Murkowski strikes back: She delays committee hearings for Trump administration nominees

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, led by Sen. Lisa Murkowskidelayed a vote to confirm several Trump administration appointees on Thursday after she was criticized by a Cabinet member over her health care vote.
Ms. Murkowski, Alaska Republican, acknowledged Thursday that she had a conversation with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke about President Trump’s displeasure with her vote against the Republican health care bill late Wednesday.
“I did have a conversation with the secretary. He told me what I already knew, which was that the president wasn’t pleased with the vote that I had taken, and I knew that,” Ms. Murkowski said to CBS News.
The committee, which she chairs, was set to nominate six Trump appointments Thursday morning, including three for the Interior Department.

A committee spokesperson said the delay was “due to uncertainty of the Senate schedule.”
