UPDATE: Senate Adjourns For Christmas With Trump’s FCC IG Pick Hanging


Updated at 11:15am Eastern

On March 11, the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation heard testimony from an attorney at Covington & Burling, focused on commercial litigation and government contracts, who had been nominated to serve as Inspector General of the FCC.

This individual would replace David Hunt, who was appointed in 2011 and agreed to step down following an OK for Johnson, an Oklahoma native.

That may not be happening, as the Senate has recessed until December 29.
