Rand Paul ended the filibuster about 20 minutes ago after 12 hours and 52 minutes. All of the filibuster argument is being uploaded here. From quoting Reagan, we are “the last best hope on earth” to Marco Rubio quoting the Godfather, they put on quite a study in the Constitution.
We should tip our hats tonight to Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Pat Toomey (R-Penn.), John Thune (R-S.D.), John Barrasso (R-Wy.), Tim Scott (R-S.C.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.).
The question was simple-do you, Mr. President, believe you and your administration have the authority to kill by drone an American citizen without due process on American soil?
If a President cannot immediately answer that question “no” , there is a deep problem.
