Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced Tuesday night, shutting down a speach in opposition of Attorney General Nominee, Senator Jeff Sessions.   Senate Rule 19 was cited, which says in a nutshell says senators will not impune other senators on the senate floor.   This rule was created over 100 years ago after a dispute between two senators resulted in violence.

Two answered correctly:  19 OF 29 CHECK-INS GOT THE ANSWER CORRECT. Too many to list here.

Thanks to all that checked into the net. Special thanks to Gary (W6NVY) for use of the repeater.
