Manchin Statement on Hagel, Brennan Nominations

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement about the President's nominations of former Senator Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) to serve as Secretary of Defense and Deputy National Security Advisor John Brennan to serve as CIA Director.

"The President -- like any elected executive -- should have the utmost consideration in putting a staff together, and I intend to do that. I haven't met or spoken with either Senator Hagel or Mr. Brennan, but both of these men have served our country with honor and distinction. I look forward to talking with them, hearing their views and giving their nominations my full consideration. In particular, I am eager for the Senate Armed Services Committee confirmation hearings to take place, because I will have the opportunity to ask West Virginians' commonsense questions about how we can make our country and our world safer."
