Levin: GOP Asking Hagel ‘Things No Prior Candidate Has Ever Been Asked For’

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), who has delayed a Senate Armed Services Committee confirmation vote for former Sen. Chuck Hagel, said on Thurday that Republican demands of President Obama's nominee to lead the defense department were without precedent, The Hill reports:

The requests are “things no prior candidate has ever been asked for, way beyond what the rules of the committee are,” Levin told reporters. “He has provided all of the financial information that was required.”

Twenty-five Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), sent Hagel a letter Tuesday saying they were opposed to a vote on his confirmation as Defense secretary until he provided additional financial information.


Levin said he would reschedule the vote once he responds to the GOP requests in a letter of his own later this week.

1. Thank you, Mr. Levin. Completely transparent obstruction and an attempt

to create a cloud of suspicion over Hagel.
