Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer opened Inauguration Week Tuesday morning by saying that Trump's pick to oversee the dismantling of Obamacare, Tom Price, may have broken the law with a stock purchase previous year and should be investigated.
But Democrats - led by Schumer - complain that Trump's nominees haven't submitted required paperwork in all cases, and there's not been enough time to question the nominees.
But the Democratic leader - speaking a day before Donald Trump is to be inaugurated as the 45th president - accused Republicans of trying to "jam through" other Cabinet nominees who haven't completed ethics reviews or about whom Democrats have questions.
Republicans have repeatedly pointed to the larger number of nominees that Obama got, arguing that Democrats are treating Trump unfairly.
For the rest of the nominees, the New York Democrat said that Mr. Trump had selected a "swamp Cabinet" full of billionaires and bankers whose ethics and business records retired extra scrutiny. Schumer drew specific attention to Rex Tillerson who is Trump's secretary of state pick and how his ties to Russian Federation must still be reviewed. In 2013, in an effort to overcome GOP opposition to Obama's nominees, Senate Democrats changed the chamber's rules so that nominations to the executive branch require only a simple majority, rather than 60 votes, with the exception of Supreme Court nominees.
Schumer said it's possible that other non-controversial nominees also could come up for a vote as early as Friday. Democrats changed the rules of the Senate in 2013 to allow appointments to be approved on simple majority votes, so they can not stop any nominees without Republican help.
