Key Republican Previews Case Against Kagan

Monday, 02 Aug 2010 07:50 PM

The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee is telling colleagues that Elena Kagan has a dangerous political approach to the law that makes her unfit for the Supreme Court.

Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama is previewing his case against Kagan in a letter to senators the day before the Senate begins debating her nomination.

A vote to confirm President Barack Obama's nominee is planned by the end of the week, with virtually all Democrats and a handful of Republicans expected to be in favor.

Sessions calls Kagan's lack of judicial experience a "dramatic deficit," and says she would try to mold the law to her liberal beliefs. He charges she's worked to increase the availability of abortions and is hostile to gun rights.
