Dem's prepare for Republican filibuster
Posted by Staff
Fox News reports:

The battle over Defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel reached a boiling point Thursday, as senior Hill sources said Republicans have told Democrats they intend to block his confirmation until more information is provided about the Benghazi terror attack.

A day earlier, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid set the stage for a full Senate vote Friday. In a first for a Defense secretary nominee, Hagel is expected to have to clear a 60-vote threshold in order to be confirmed -- due to objections by Republican lawmakers.

Republicans already are almost uniformly opposed to Hagel. But with this leverage, they are also demanding the White House provide more information about what President Obama was doing on the night of the Benghazi terror attack.
