Earlier version of the bill that had an amendment to ensure

that a U.S. citizen could not be indefinitely detained without a public trial by jury. Basically an affirmation of the 5th amendment. This early version of the bill, on December 4th, with the amendment passed unanimously. Later the amendment was stripped by McCain and that's when the final version passed on December 21st by a vote of 81-14 with Rand and Mike Lee opposing it.
