On the Nomination PN87: Lt. Gen. Herbert R. McMaster, Jr., in the Army, to be Lieutenant General

This vote confirmed Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster to be President Trump's National Security Advisor. Although appointments to the position do not normally require Senate confirmation, the appointment of a Senate-confirmed active military officer to this position --- a different position than the one the Senate had previously confirmed them for --- requires that the Senate re-confirm the appointment and the military rank that comes along with the appointment. In this vote, the Senate confirms the re-appointment of McMaster to the new position, which happens to come with the same rank that McMaster already holds. Source: CBS News
