President-elect Donald Trump's pick for cabinet positions will face confirmation hearings this week during a packed schedule -- and his picks will have to face Democratic scrutiny.
CBS News reports there will be a flurry of confirmation hearings because Congress can't confirm Trump's picks until he is sworn in as president, but they can hold hearings ahead of time to get the nominations ready.
The New York Times reports hearings start Tuesday, with Senator Jeff Sessions, Trump's choice for attorney general and Gen. John F. Kelly, his Homeland Security Secretary pick. Then, five hearings on Wednesday.
CNN reports Democrats will more than likely focus on Trump's picks ties to Russia, among other issues.
CNN and CBS News also reporting Democrats have asked to delay hearings, saying they're concerned some of the nominees haven't been properly vetted.
