Betsy DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary, has her confirmation hearing in front of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions at 5PM ET. The Democrats picked her as one of the eight nominees they want to grill the most.

DeVos has remained an advocate for school choice and used money to help establish charter schools in Detroit, MI. Of course, the Democrats have concerns over her massive donations to Republicans, including some that sit on the panel, and the Republican National Committee.

We’ll be liveblogging beneath.

So the Democrats have complained more about the process and time limit than they have asked DeVos questions. This is beyond ridiculous.

Here is the great questioning from Sen. Cassidy:

DeVos again says she embraces equality and students should receive a discrimination free place to be educated.

DeVos said she will take a salary of only $1.

This is important:

Lieberman: She will ask the right questions such as if this program working? Is it giving them the right education to improve lives?

Liberman: DeVos, despite no experience in education, is the right person for this job.

So Senator Murray launches an attack on Trump not releasing his tax returns because that totally fits into this hearing.

Sen. Alexander points out the many Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, who supported public charter schools.
