Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement regarding John Brennan’s nomination to be CIA director:

“Earlier today, I informed the White House that I would oppose further consideration of John Brennan’s nomination to be CIA director until Attorney General Eric Holder answered Senator Rand Paul’s question about whether non-combatant American citizens could be targeted by drones on American soil. Now that the question has been answered and the President has acknowledged that he does not, in fact, possess such authority, I intend to support cloture on John Brennan’s nomination and will vote to confirm him.”
