This resolution will likely come to a vote in the House tomorrow and was submitted by Dennis Kucinich and cosponsored by Ron Paul (R-TX), Rush Holt Jr. (D-NJ), Justin Amash (R-MI), James p. McGovern (D-MA) and Barbara Lee (D-CA).

“Thus far, the Administration has refused to release the memo or any documents, despite multiple requests from members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. Intelligence operations that have virtually no transparency, accountability or oversight raise serious legal questions, particularly when such programs may constitute possible violations of international law or the Constitution of the United States,” said Kucinich.
