Rand Paul considered using catheter before his 13-hour filibuster to stall confirmation of CIA director nominee
Sen. Rand Paul on Thursday said he received an “outpouring of support” from congressional colleagues during his nearly 13-hour filibuster, which was so long he considered using a catheter before opting not to.
Paul was speaking on the conservative talk show host Glenn Beck’s radio show on TheBlaze radio network, hours after wrapping up the longest talking filibuster
in years, which he invoked to stall confirmation of CIA Director nominee John Brennan. At issue: use of drones to target American citizens on U.S. soil.
