Explain to me, the Senate approval of the Attorney General...

Is the review by a Committee as we saw with Kavenaugh or the full vote of the Senate?

8. yeah, as far as I know

and I could be wrong, cause I dunno if McConnell could pass over the committees decision...

the committee votes, needs a simple majority. <kinda like how important Flakes yes vote on Kavuenaugh was so important to advance it out of committee>
then it goes to fill senate.

3. I think it has to go through committee first. If it goes successfully goes through committee, it...

goes to the floor for a full vote. Correct me if I'm wrong anyone.

4. the committee does not have to vote yes for the floor vote.



If McConnell wants to vote on it after an "unsuccessful" committee vote, it's Majority Leader's option.

IIRC.

5. So, it will be much more difficult to approve Whitaker with need of a full Senate vote...??

We could have a few Republicans actually see him for the fraud he actually is...so this could be a winnable battle to deny tRumps tool...

That is what I'm speculating anyways..
