Confirmation Hearings Postponed for Education Secretary Pick DeVos

The Congressional confirmation hearings for Betsy DeVos, nominated by President-elect Trump to serve as Secretary of Education, have been postponed until next week.

From coverage in Time magazine:

The Office of Government Ethics voiced concerns last week about the scheduled hearings for several nominees who have not yet completed the ethics review process. On Saturday, the Washington Post reported that DeVos was one of those nominees, due to the work involved in reviewing her considerable financial holdings for any potential conflicts of interest.
