ABSTRACT

Nomination Hearing: James Mattis, Secretary of Defense, Hearing Before the Committee on Armed Services, United States Senate, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, First Session, January 12, 2017   [open pdf - 2MB]

This is a testimony compilation of the January 12, 2017 hearing on "Nomination Hearing: James Mattis, Secretary of Defense" held before the Senate Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of John McCain: "All of us recognize the unique, indeed historic, nature of this nomination. General Mattis enjoyed a long and distinguished career in uniform, but current law would bar him from serving as Secretary of Defense for three more years. While I support retaining that law, I also believe that our nation needs General Mattis's service more than ever. So after this hearing, the Committee will meet to consider special legislation to allow General Mattis to serve as Secretary of Defense." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James N. Mattis.
