Evasion and Double Talk in Kagan Confirmation Hearings

Is this the kind of person we want serving on the Supreme Court?

During her time in the Clinton White House Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan worked to undermine opposition to the barbaric practice of partial birth abortion. She was able to get a contact at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to insert a few lines in a report that was later used as the basis for legal challenges to a state ban on the practice.

A statement to which the scientists strongly object.

The memo which Kagan wrote has her handwriting on the document.During the confirmation hearings, Senator Orin Hatch (R-UT) asked her a simple question: "Did you write that memo." What followed was some of the most blatant evasion I have ever heard a public official make; let alone a nominee for the high court.




HATCH: I'M HAPPY TO HAVE YOU CLARIFY IT. THAT IS MY QUESTION, DID YOU WRITE THAT MEMO?
KAGAN: THE MEMO WHICH IS -- THE MEMO THAT BASICALLY
YES, I HAVE SEEN THE DOCUMENT.

HATCH: DID YOU WRITE THE MEMO?

KAGAN: THE DOCUMENT IS CERTAINLY IN MY HAND WRITING. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER THE DOCUMENT WAS A PRODUCT OF A...
In answering, or rather NOT answering, this direct question, does Kagan sound like the kind of honest person who would make a good judge who can rise about politics to render decisions on the most important matters?
