White House press secretary Josh Earnest talks to the media during the daily press briefing, on Monday, July 6, 2015, in Washington. Ahead of Obama’s Pentagon visit later today, the White House sharply criticized Senate Republicans for failing to confirm Adam Szubin, Obama’s nominee to be the Treasury undersecretary responsible for choking off funding to groups like IS. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Republicans had refused to “even give him the time of day for a hearing” since Obama nominated Szubin in April, adding that the Senate should confirm him before lawmakers go home for their annual August recess.(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)
