Clinton Presidential Library Releases Additional Kagan FilesBreaking News
On June 4, the William Clinton Presidential Library opened approximately 46,500 pages of files relating to U.S. Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan’s tenure at the White House Domestic Policy Council. The additional release of papers from the approximately 160,000 pages of material will be made available on the Clinton Library website in batches as soon as the records are processed.
The Clinton Library has already released records from Kagan’s Domestic Policy Council files and the files of Bruce Reed, Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy.
Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has expressed frustration over the pace of the release of Kagan’s records. Ironically, Sessions has been identified as the Senator who placed a hold blocking Senate floor consideration for over a year of the Presidential Records Reform Act (H.R. 35), which would streamline the release of presidential records. The bill overwhelmingly passed the House in January 2009, and cleared the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in May 2009.
