Republican Senator Mike Lee recently blocked a vote on a bill that would have protected special counsel Robert Mueller from being fired.
Senator Lee objected to the legislation Wednesday, claiming it had constitutional issues.
Under Senate rules, just one senator is needed to block a request for a vote on legislation.
This comes after Senators Jeff Flake, Chris Coons and Cory Booker took to the Senate floor to try and force a vote on the bill for a second time.
Flake has previously said he would not vote for judicial nominees until the legislation to protect Mueller was voted on.
