Garner States Clinton Documents Won’t Be Ready By Kagan Confirmation..”There Is Just Too Much Stuff”

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday set June 28 as the start date for hearings on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, and asked the Clinton presidential library to turn over voluminous documents related to Kagan’s time as a top presidential assistant in the 1990s.

But Terri Garner, director of the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, said in an interview Wednesday that it would be “very difficult” for her facility to meet the deadline. She said the records request is overly broad and “too general in scope” and that, under the Presidential Records Act, attorneys for both Clinton and President Obama have the right to read and review each document before it is released to the committee.

“There are just too many things here,” she said. “These are legal documents and they are presidential records, and they have to be read by an archivist and vetted for any legal restrictions. And they have to be read line by line.” Also there are many books that are all words and not many pictures..

Garner said, just confirm Kagan and then we can see who she is…
