I believe it was filibustered during Brennan’s nomination for CIA. And the issue was, Drone strikes on American citizens inside America while they didn’t pose an immediate threat of attack. The issue wasn’t even Brennan, according to Paul. He simply chose to use that opportunity to make a point.
What happened during Hagel’s nomination was, if I recall correctly, the Republicans (and Rand was prominent in this, but was joined by the others) at first stuck together and refused to allow a vote on Hagel, they said because they hadn’t received enough information on what they had questioned Hagel about. After that brief stand, they relented and did allow a vote on Hagel. And Rand Paul voted FOR Hagel, angering quite a few folks, and apparently confusing others.
Correct me if I’m wrong.
Oh, you are correct. Was refuting the perception LSM put out that Paul went against what he filibustered for. It was Brennan, not Hagel
