Clinton Representative Reviewing Kagan Documents

Tuesday, 01 Jun 2010 10:14 PM


The White House may have to negotiate with former President Bill Clinton and a Senate committee to resolve concerns about releasing files from Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's past.

White House Counsel Bob Bauer says a Clinton aide is reviewing Kagan's files from her stint in his administration to see whether any of the 160,000-page trove of records should be kept secret.

In a letter to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, Bauer said if Clinton decides there's material that should be kept confidential, the White House would work with his staff to try to accommodate the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sessions, the top Judiciary Republican, had expressed doubt that the documents could be produced in time for senators to review them before the panel's June 28 confirmation hearing date.
