Bryant reacts to beginning of session, Trump cabinet hearings

Meanwhile, Bryant said he will attend president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration next week.

He said this week’s Senate hearings for Trump’s cabinet nominees are part of a “healthy debate,” as the country prepares for an orderly transition of power.

“I think in the end you will see all of his appointments to the cabinet confirmed and we’ll go about having a peaceful transfer of power,” Bryant said. “That’s the amazing thing about this great country. I will be in Washington on the 20th to see the new president sworn in to office and we’ll begin the challenge of governing after that.”
