Democrats Boycott Committee Votes on Trump's Picks for Treasury and Health and Human Services

Democrats on the Senate Finance Committee boycotted scheduled votes.

Asked about Democrats' concerns about the two nominees, he replied, "Give me a break."

"We are not going to this committee today because we want the committee to regroup, get the information, have these two nominees come back in front of the committee, clarify what they lied about. And I hope they'd apologize about that," Brown said.

"The congressman has insisted that he didn't get special access to a special deal. Now we have reports that the company says otherwise ... an indicator that [Price] didn't tell the truth," Wyden said. "At a minimum, I believe the committee should postpone this vote so we have an opportunity to talk to the company officials."
