[Updated at 3:03 p.m. ET] Sen. Rand Paul has told CNN's Dana Bash that he will allow a vote to end his filibuster against CIA director nominee John Brennan.
He says he's doing this because he's received an answer from the Obama administration about his question on drones.
[Posted at 2:15 p.m. ET] After a nearly 13-hour filibuster by Sen. Rand Paul over his questions about drones, the U.S. attorney general has given a response.
Attorney General Eric Holder says the president does not have the authority to use a drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on U.S. soil, according to a letter he addressed to Sen. Rand Paul on Thursday.
"It has come to my attention that you have now asked an additional question: 'Does the President have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on American soil?' The answer to that question is no," the letter states.FULL STORY
