Fighting Back

The truth is

that there IS no block to a person being confirmed. There just needs to be regular order.

Tuberville, who goes by the nickname “Coach” in the Senate, has imposed a hold on over 300 nominees to general and flag officer positions in the U.S. military in protest against a Biden administration policy of reimbursing servicemembers for travel to seek an abortion in states whose laws permit it.

Under regular order, each nominee would be subject to a “cloture vote,” after which there would be no more than 18 hours of debate on their nomination before a final confirmation vote was taken. “Coach is not blocking anyone from being confirmed. Chuck Schumer could confirm any one of these at any time,” wrote Mallory Jaspers, a Tuberville aide, in an email to the DCNF.

Go get ’em, coach!
