As reported by The Washington Post, the Senate voted Tuesday night to rebuke Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) when she spoke in opposition to President Trump’s pick for attorney general Jeff Sessions.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) rebuked colleague Elizabeth Warren during last night's confirmation debate over Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions. Yet another example of the partisan volatility on capitol hill. Each side's using the incident to rile its base.

Who crossed the line - McConnell or Warren?
