No more votes today; Senator Paul objects to consideration of Brennan nomination

Senator Reid asked unanimous consent to proceed to the consideration of Executive Calendar #13, the nomination of John Brennan, to be Director of the Central Intelligence Agency; that the cloture motion at the desk be reported; there be 90 minutes for debate on the nomination, with Senator Feinstein controlling 30 minutes, Senator Chambliss controlling 30 minutes, and Senator Paul controlling 30 minutes; that upon the use or yielding back of time, the Senate proceed to vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the nomination. Finally, that if cloture is invoked, the Senate immediately proceed to vote on confirmation of the nomination.

Senator Paul objected.

There will be no further roll call votes tonight. Senators should plan to be here tomorrow.
