Our Congress is finally standing up against the President of the United States, and acting out it’s actions as a coequal branch to the Executive Branch. The Executive Branch has claimed the authority to launch drone strikes on AmericanĀ citizensĀ abroad.

As Sen. John Coryn said:

“We’re not mere supplicants to the executive branch, we are a coequal branch of government,” Cornyn said during discussion of his amendment in the Senate committee hearing last week. “So it is insufficient to say pretty please, Mr. President, pretty please, Mr. Attorney General, will you please tell us the legal authority by which you claim the authority to kill American citizens abroad?”
