    Exclamation Democrats plan to block possible Trump recess appointments

    There's an old but true saying "What goes around comes around." How true that is. Republicans held back President Obama's appointments and now it's their turn to bite the dust with theirs. Go Democrats!

    Democrats plan to block possible Trump recess appointments - ABC News
    By MARIAM KHAN

    "Democrats are worried President Donald Trump wants to remove the nation's top lawyer, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during the August recess to make way for someone who would be willing to fire the special prosecutor leading the charge into the 2016 election hacking investigation without first being confirmed by the Senate."
    "In order to remove the possibility of Trump making a recess appointment while the Senate is out of session during the August state-work period, Schumer said he expects the Senate will hold pro forma sessions throughout the upcoming recess to prevent a recess appointment from happening."
    "Schumer said he and his colleagues will be ready to block a potential recess appointment by utilizing the procedural tool that has already been used this year during Trump's presidency, most recently during the Fourth of July holiday. Pro forma sessions were also notably used during Barack Obama's presidency to prevent him from making recess appointments."

    my understand is that the Republican's aren't too keen on the idea either.

    Schumer is showing a lot more spine after the corporate democrats lost to carnival barker Trump. Schumer was able to keep the blue dogs from voting with the republicans to repeal Obamacare. That will allow a bunch of blue dogs to take back the house in 2018.

    Democrats will never learn their lesson.
