Sen. Duckworth 'will not support the waiver' for Gen. Austin to serve as Defense Secretary


Sen. Tammy Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran, says she will support Gen. Lloyd Austin but will not vote for a waiver to allow him to serve as Secretary of Defense. She believes Gen. Austin is "very capable" to lead the department, but believes there should be civilian oversight of the military.
