Moments ago, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell announced the latter, when he said that he would cancel the first two weeks of August recess, delaying it to the third week of August, to give more time to complete action on outstanding legislation.

β€œIn order to provide more time to complete action on important legislative items and process nominees that have been stalled by a lack of cooperation from our friends across the aisle, the Senate will delay the start of the August recess until the third week of August,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says in statement.
