BY WASHINGTON TIMES

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he’s still hoping to confirm President-elect Donald Trump’s national security Cabinet picks on Jan. 20, just after the new president is sworn in. After meeting with Mr. Trump in New York, Mr. McConnell emerged to say Republicans will give all the nominees scrutiny, but he’s pushing to have at least a half-dozen of them ready to go in less than two weeks. “Everybody will be properly vetted as they have been in the past, and I’m hopeful that we’ll get up to six or seven — particularly national security team in place — on day one,” the Kentucky Republican told reporters. Mr. Trump himself also said he’s pleased with the pace on Capitol Hill, saying he expects all of his picks to be approved.

The relationship between the president-elect and the press is famously strained. In an effort to get on better footing before the Trump administration takes over, the White House Correspondents’ Association and Trump’s team met this week to consider how they can work together. Among the changes discussed are whether daily press conferences will be televised and what the seating chart at these conferences might be. Seating traditionally has been managed by WHCA, according to The Huffington Post. Spicer has suggested that this approach means that some media outlets lose out. “What about some of the conservative media having some of the prized seats in there?” he said last month, according to the website. “What about having some of the top bloggers being able to come in?”
