White House Staff To Deliver Elena Kagan's Answers To Senate Judiciary Committee

Eight days after her nomination and five days after receiving the questionnaire, White House staff will deliver Elena Kagan’s answers to the Senate Judiciary Committee today at 3:30 in room 224 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.

Kagan come under fire early in her appointment regarding her practice of military recruiting. Earlier this week, the White House also requested the expeditious release of Kagan’s Clinton White House records which includes 160,000 pages of paper, including e-mail.

"Those documents may well hold the best clue as to her views and her attitudes, in terms of the role of the federal government and how she would perform as a Supreme Court justice," said Senator John Cornyn.

The White House will continue to take all necessary steps to ensure that the Committee is fully informed and can act in a timely fashion in deliberating on and confirming the nominee.
