No SCOTUS Nominee Until Sessions is Confirmed?

Politico Playbook:

NEWS — SCOTUS UPDATE — MULTIPLE GOP SOURCES tell us that PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP is not likely to introduce his SCOTUS nominee until Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is confirmed as attorney general. Why? Handing the Judiciary Committee a SCOTUS nominee while they’re dealing with Sessions would be too heavy a workload. If Sessions gets confirmed in early February, Trump could have his new justice on the bench by Memorial Day.
