The Washington Times has the details:

The House and Senate have both left for their August recess, and will not return until Tuesday, September 5.
Now that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has moved over from his position as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, that creates a vacancy in that office. For the first few days after the announcement of his move, there were suggestions that maybe President Trump was creating the vacancy so he could move Attorney General Jeff Sessions to Homeland Security, and then appoint a new Attorney General who, not ...

Attendees got a quick tutorial on social media on Friday, then got a chance to see what their colleagues ...
