Today, Sen. Paul sent what his office says is the third and final request for information.
The question that I and many others have asked is not whether the Administration has or intends to carry out drone strikes inside the United States, but whether it believes it has the authority to do so. This is an important distinction that should not be ignored.
Until you directly and clearly answer, I plan to use every procedural option at my disposal to delay your confirmation and bring added scrutiny to this issue and the Administration’s policies on the use of lethal force. The American people are rightfully concerned, and they deserve a frank and open discussion on these policies.
Whether or not Sen. Paul will place a hold on Brennan's nomination is still up in the air, though that would certainly be within the scope of "every procedural option" at the disposal of a Senator.
