(Breitbart) In 2013, I filibustered the nomination of CIA Director John Brennan. I did so to defend a core constitutional principle that has made America a leader among nations for as long as we have been a nation—the right to due process.

I wanted to know if President Obama believed he had the power to kill an American citizen without due process. It took me almost 13 hours to get my answer, but the Obama Administration finally relented.

They seemed annoyed I had even asked the question. I was flabbergasted that it took them so long to answer it.

I’m still not sure they completely get the message.
