Army Times:
The Senate appeared to have confirmed Christine Wormuth Wednesday night — until the body reversed her confirmation just hours later in an unusual development.

...proceedings shows Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announcing the reversal. Schumer’s staff did not immediately respond to a request for clarification from Army Times, and the senator deleted a previous tweet hailing Wormuth’s confirmation.

Wormuth had already acknowledged her confirmation online Wednesday evening, saying she was “so honored to be confirmed as Secretary of the Army” in response to a friend’s tweet. Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston had also shared his congratulations with his new civilian boss as well.

bottom line...

After rare reversal, Wormuth confirmed once again as first woman Army secretary​

And this is our great nation's constitutionally elected mice w/o term limits...much to ado about nothing!
