White House Slams Sen. Sessions on Sotomayor

greg craigThe White House is hitting back at a key Republican senator who has accused Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s allies of withholding documents from her past.

White House Counsel Greg Craig says in a letter to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions that material from a Puerto Rican legal advocacy group from when Sotomayor sat on its board isn’t relevant to her nomination. Sessions is the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee.

(“isn’t relevant to her NOMINATION”  How could it not be relevant to her nomination? Why is she being pushed through so fast without knowing EVERYTHING in her past? Oh, that’s right we have a President we don’t know about. Has anyone seen his transcripts from college?)

Sessions’ office says Sotomayor’s backers are delaying the release of the documents to prevent a thorough investigation.

Craig tells Sessions that the Judiciary panel already has all pertinent documents on Sotomayor.

Republicans criticize Sotomayor’s involvement with the group, arguing the group has taken extreme positions.
