Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took the chamber floor Wednesday to scold Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer for what he called “performance outrage” over President Trump’s upcoming Supreme Court nominee, who Republicans have vowed to confirm before the end of the year.

The two-hour rule prevents committees from meeting and holding business while the Senate is in session.
