Democrats have delayed the confirmation vote for Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general. The Senate Judiciary Committee was slated to vote on his confirmation today, but will now vote January 31. If approved, the full Senate will not vote until February. Democrats have also asked for a second confirmation hearing for billionaire Betsy DeVos for education secretary, amid widespread concerns about potential conflicts of interest stemming from her family’s many investments, including in private charter schools and a student loan company.
