Senator: No Kagan hearings without Clinton files
AP on Yahoo ^ | 5/24/10 | Julie Hirschfeld Davis - ap

WASHINGTON – The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee warned Monday that he would seek to slow Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's path to confirmation unless senators get full access to her files as a Clinton administration aide.

"We're heading to what could be a train wreck," Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama said. "I don't believe that this committee can go forward with an adequate hearing" without all records from Kagan's tenure as a White House counsel and then domestic policy adviser to President Bill Clinton.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary Committee chairman, last week set hearings to begin on June 28. Sessions said Republicans would ask for a delay unless senators get access to the tens of thousands of pages of Clinton-era records by then.

Sessions doesn't have a veto over the hearing schedule, but his threat set the stage for a potential partisan showdown over the documents and the pace of Kagan's confirmation process.

Just shut up and confirm her!

You don't need any damned facts!

It's racist for you to demand facts!

Thank goodness that someone had the guts to stand up to this rushed attempt to confirm.

He’s apparently trying to beat his free-throw record with the number of posts before he gets zotted.

Funny - I thought that user had some potential.
He was more than adequately pissed off at elitist leftists to come to Free Republic and sign up a few days ago.

He should have looked around a bit more at the etiquette, I suppose.

You don’t post threads or news articles until you’ve been around for a lot longer than 3 days.

Does this mean it’s time for someone to stuff those files down their pants and just walk off?

Thank God there is actually a Republican Senator who still had the fortitude to say this. I never would have gotten this from my two RINOs here in Georgia.
