Rand Paul To Filibuster John Brennan Over Drones

 rand paul

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) issued a final letter to former Obama assassination czar and current nominee for director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan in which he questions the legality of using drone strikes inside the United States. Paul has inquired on two other occasions. You can read those here and here.

Paul’s letter to Brennan recounts the previous attempts to get him to answer questions that have been posed to him. So far, Paul has not received a response. All of his requests have been ignored.

“Your past actions in this regard, as well as your view of the limitations to which you are subject, are of critical importance in assessing your qualifications to lead the CIA,” Paul writes. “If it is not clear that you will honor the limits placed upon the Executive Branch by the Constitution, then the Senate should not confirm you to lead the CIA.”
