Senator Warns of Dangers Posed by Trump's NASA Nominee

Patty Murray Letter

Senator Patty Murray of Washington says Rep. Jim Bridenstine is not the person to take us into the future. Read her letter to the Senate's Science Committee below.

President Trump's nominee for administrator of NASA is an idealogue fixated on the past, according to a letter from Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) to the Senate's Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.

Murray writes to the committee's chairman and ranking member -- John Thune and Bill Nelson, respectively -- that she opposes the nomination of Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) to head NASA. Bridenstine has not only shown deep animus for Muslims, women, and LGBT people, Murray writes, he's a climate change denier. If he was to be confirmed, he would also be the first politician to head the space agency.
