Mattis hearing


Before Mattis can join the Cabinet, Congress must approve a one-time exception to a law requiring a military officer to be out of uniform for at least seven years before leading the Pentagon. Even some of Trump’s strongest critics say Mattis merits the exception — and the Senate voted decisively today to approve the waiver on a 81-17 vote. It goes next to the House.
