They were all appointed on January 20th of 2017 but are yet to be confirmed by the senate who today confirmed the appointment of Senator Jeff Sessions as our next Attorney General earlier today.

No president before Trump has had such rigorous scrutiny put on his appointments. The final vote tally was 52-47 in favor of confirmation as CSPAN reports, then they wen’t the deliberate on other Trump appointments, who knows by which small margin this one may pass.

It’s seems dubious weather the senate will be on-board with Trump’s “draining the swamp” initiative, it remains to be seen weather the upper house’s gridlock ability has transformed from being a house with limited vested interests to a house eternally indebted to the same corporate interests endemic in the lower house.
