As the Senate agreed today to stop the "nuclear option," Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told Eric Bolling on Your World that he plans on filibustering the FBI director nomination. Democrats, led by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, had warned Republicans that if they don't allow President Obama's executive branch nominees, then they'd strip Congress' power to filibuster.

Sen. Paul said he would put a hold on the nomination of James Comey as FBI director to get more information on how the federal government is using drones. "I'm trying to get a real truth. Is the FBI using the Bill of Rights? Are they seeking a warrant from a judge before they spy on us?"
