GOP senators criticize Pentagon nominee’s ‘partisan’ tweets

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration’s nominee for top Pentagon policy adviser is being met with sharp criticism from Republicans on the Senate Armed Services Committee, including accusations that he has been too partisan. Colin Kahl served as national security adviser to then-Vice President Joe Biden during the Obama administration. He faced repeated questions during Thursday’s hearing on his previous support for the Iran nuclear deal and how he would approach that issue now. And a number of GOP senators said they were troubled by partisan tweets Kahl put out during Donald Trump’s presidency, and said they would oppose his nomination.
