I agree with Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.) "Senate must act on Trump’s ambassador nominees" #ConfirmGrenell
A Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee expressed frustration Thursday over the slow pace of confirmations for President Trump’s ambassador nominees, saying he would push Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to bring them to the floor for a vote.
The Democrats have refused to confirm Richard Grenell for Ambassador to Germany but the Senate Majority Leader isn't blameless. He could invoke the Reid Rule which would only require 51 votes which is what Congress did under Obama but for some reason Mitch McConnell doesn't want to do that? Some people think he would rather not invoke the Reid Rule so he can blame the Democrats for not getting these things done....
Richard Grenell was nominated last year in September to serve as Ambassador to Germany. His nomination has passed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee twice, but has not made it to the floor for a vote.
How many years does Congress need before we can have the Ambassador to Germany confirmed?
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn expressed concern over the national security risks for leaving such am important post open
Harvey Milk Foundation co-founder, Stuart Milk, says Mr. Grenell’s confirmation would “send an important message” about the gay community’s having a place in the Trump Administration. “It would be a huge void” if the nomination didn’t proceed, he said.
Some of us are starting to wonder if Congress is one giant homophobe?
Grenell was the longest-serving American spokesman at the United Nations, working with four US ambassadors.
What could possibly be the hold up?
McConnell spokesperson David Popp told TheDailyCaller he couldn’t say when Grenell’s nomination will go before the full Senate .
This is interesting. When McConnell WANTS to get something done and you can rest assured it will get done. He and the democrats don't want to get this done so we have to MAKE them WANT to get this done.
Please call your leaders and tell them enough is enough. Confirm Richard Grenell now. Tell Mitch to invoke the Reid Rule or step aside and let someone else do the job that needs to be done.
Call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (202) 224-2541
Call Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (202) 225-3031
After you have called those 2 then call your leaders in your state
Tweet at your leaders asking them nicely to confirm Richard Grenell now
