This morning during “Meet the Press,” NBC’s Chuck Todd accused Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) of using petty delay tactics to prevent President Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees from getting through the Senate.

Todd asked Schumer why he would hold up Mike Pompeo’s nomination to be CIA Director.

“There are very serious questions about Mike Pompeo,” Schumer told Todd. “So to have a discussion for a few days when this man will have enormous power, and be in office for maybe up to four years, makes eminent sense.”

Todd pointed out that Pompeo had answered all of Schumer’s questions under oath during his confirmation hearing.
