Multiple DC sources have confirmed to GotNews that an effort to give Democrats control of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for months into Trump’s presidency is actually being led by Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell himself.
McConnell has reached an agreement with President Barack Obama and Democratic Senator Harry Reid to trade away control of the FCC for in exchange for confirmation of his own staffer, Neil Chatterjee, to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
The FCC has vast jurisdiction over the Internet, television, and radio. It is one of the most powerful federal agencies. So why would Mitch McConnell give it away by agreeing to reconfirm Democrat Jessica Rosenworcel even though Democrats already control two of the other five seats well into next year?
Chatterjee is one of McConnell’s closest and most prized staffers. His nomination has been stalled and because Chatterjee is a known #NeverTrump activist, McConnell is desperate to get him confirmed before the end of the year to prevent Trump from naming his own loyal supporters to FERC instead next year.
