A unique verbatim drama ...
The U.S. Senate's 2017 confirmation process for President Trump's Cabinet forensically reveals the ethics, beliefs and philosophy behind four key Cabinet figures:
Rex Tillerson, the former CEO of Exxon, now Secretary of State responsible for America's foreign policy
Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, a leading campaigner for the President and now his chief law officer
Dr Tom Price, a strident critic of Obamacare now Health Secretary and Scott Pruitt, a climate change sceptic confirmed as Director of the Environmental Protection Agency
The appointment of these men will have huge implications
They will lead the administration's policy on Russia, the Middle East, Iran and North Korea, on human rights worldwide, on the Paris Climate control agreement, as well as on the civil rights and the health of millions of Americans
In front of four separate Senate committees these nominees were subjected to tough and relentless cross-examination
Each of them had to fend off accusations ranging from corruption to deceit or racism.
These gripping and dramatic verbatim Senate sessions probed their fitness for office, and give us a vital insight into the future policies and direction of a Trump Presidency
