From The Hill:
The Senate blocked President Trump from being able to make recess appointments on Thursday as lawmakers leave Washington for their August break.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), doing wrap up for the entire Senate, locked in nine "pro-forma" sessions — brief meetings that normally last roughly a minute.
The move, which requires the agreement of every senator, means the Senate will be in session every three business days throughout the August recess.
The Senate left D.C. on Thursday evening with most lawmakers not expected to return to Washington until after Labor Day.
If anyone wondered whether the term "Uniparty" was hyperbole . . .
