From The Epoch Times:

As James Wallner, senior fellow in governance at the R Street Institute, told The Epoch Times Jan. 31, right after cloture is invoked, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) often “asks unanimous consent to put the Senate in morning business for the purpose of debate only.”

That means voting on the nomination is again delayed because, Wallner continued, “he’s taken the nomination the Senate just ended debate on, he’s taken that nominee off the floor.”

Wallner is a former executive director of the Senate Steering Committee under Republicans Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Mike Lee of Utah.
