US politicians have blocked Donald Trump from making appointments without their permission as the Senate begins its summer break.
Senators unanimously agreed to hold nine short “pro-forma” sessions during the break, which runs from 11 August to 5 September.
It means the Senate will be in session every three days throughout August.
Democrats had suggested they would use the procedure to block the US President after it was suggested Mr Trump would try to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions during recess, The Hill reported.
