McConnell Cancels August Recess Due to “Historic Obstruction by Senate Democrats” on POTUS Trump’s Nominees

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) canceled the Senate’s August recess on Tuesday.

McConnell cited “historic obstruction by Senate Democrats” on the president’s nominees and the need to pass spending bills.

McConnell released a brief statement on Tuesday afternoon on cancelling the August recess.

“Senators should expect to remain in session in August to pass legislation, including appropriations bills, and to make additional progress on the president’s nominees.”

“Due to the historic obstruction by Senate Democrats of the president’s nominees, and the goal of passing appropriations bills prior to the end of the fiscal year, the August recess has been canceled,” McConnell said.
