The Senate Armed Services Committee held a confirmation hearing for President Trump’s nominees for Navy secretary, Air Force chief of staff, and deputy defense undersecretary for policy. Navy secretary nominee Rear Admiral Kenneth Braithwaite (Retired) addressed military chain of command issues saying, “The Department of the Navy is in rough waters due to many factors, but primarily the failure of leadership,” referring specifically to the 2017 ship collisions and the USS Roosevelt's COVID-19 outbreak. Other topics addressed in the hearing included Afghanistan operations, policy toward Russia and China, Navy shipyard maintenance, defense acquisitions, and U.S. presence in the Arctic. General Charles Brown, the Pacific Air Forces commander, was nominated as Air Force chief of staff and James Anderson as the deputy defense undersecretary for policy. close
