Do not know much about him since he had no government experience prior to current appointment.

A native of Washington state, educated at the University of Washington and MIT. Not exactly conservative institutions. Worked for Boeing which as been on the government teat for decades. I question his conservative credentials if any.

All I know is John McCain threatened to block his 2017 appointment as deputy secretary of defense. Can he be all that bad if John McCain didn't like him.... :thumbsup:

Other than that I know nothing about this guy.

Senate confirms the Pentagon's new No. 2

The Senate on Tuesday confirmed Patrick Shanahan to be the No. 2 official at the Pentagon, in a 92-7 vote.

The final vote sailed through the Senate, but it wasn't always smooth sailing for Shanahan on Capitol Hill.
He was excoriated during his confirmation hearing last month by Sen. John McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. McCain slammed Shanahan for a written answer on his questionnaire to the committee about providing weapons to Ukraine, and the Arizona Republican threatened to block Shanahan's confirmation if he didn't provide a better response.

Good point. That may be why Trump isn't pulling any of the scum from DC.
