Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) In your legal judgment, is it constitutional for the federal government to utilize a drone strike against an American  citizen on U.S. soil if that individual does not pose an imminent threat?”

Lynch stonewalled by saying she couldn’t see a reason for that situation to happen, to the Texas senator’s disappointment.
