Rand Paul To Filibuster Brennan’s Nomination

By Elisha Dorfsmith

Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed yesterday that American citizens can be taken out by drones on American soil without due process or even formal charges. Holder’s comments were a response to Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, who had been pressing the issue and demanding answers.

Now that he has his answers, Paul has released the following statement on his Facebook page:

“Over the next few hours, I will be speaking on the Senate floor to discuss at length my opposition to John Brennan’s nomination to be director of the CIA, as well as my concern over the constitutionality of the use of drone attacks on Americans and on U.S. soil.

I am actively filibustering Mr. Brennan’s nomination until further notice. Tune in on C-SPAN now.”

Thank you Rand Paul for taking a stand on this critical issue!
