Comment On The Questionnaire For Solicitor General Elena Kagan To Be Associate Justice Of The Supreme Court

“Solicitor General Kagan has promptly returned the Committee’s bipartisan questionnaire.  She is completing her meetings with each Senator on the Judiciary Committee soon, although some Republican members have asked that their meetings take place next week.  The White House has already requested that the Clinton Library expedite requests for materials about her work in the Clinton administration.  These materials, along with the record we compiled last year in connection with her nomination to be Solicitor General of the United States, put us well down the road toward our preparation for her confirmation hearing. 

“I intend to announce the schedule for her confirmation hearing soon.”
