Senator Rand Paul has informed Senate Majority Harry Reid he will place a hold on David Barron -- a nominee to the first circuit court of appeals. Barron was formerly a lawyer at the Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel where he reportedly wrote the legal justification for the Administration's targeted killing of American Anwar al-Awlaki in 2011. Senator Paul is now demanding the full release of that legal memo before Barron's nomination can proceed. RT's Sam Sacks reports from Capitol Hill.
