Cornyn Calls on White House to Release OLC Memos for Drone Killings

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) called on the Obama Administration to disclose any Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinions regarding the President's authority to authorize the killing of American citizens abroad during the course of counterterrorism operations:

"The Obama Administration must immediately release all legal opinions explaining the President's authority to execute American citizens abroad to Congress.

"The self-described "most transparent Administration in history' owes more of an explanation to the American people on why they can be targeted for execution abroad than legal fluff packaged for and deliberately leaked to the media."
