The confirmation hearings for Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court begin June 28. This will be the tenth Supreme Court justice confirmation hearing to be recorded and indexed in the Video Library. Every one is indexed with full text and speakers so that you can review questions asked of previous nominees.

There are a variety of ways to find them. You can search on the justices name and then narrow to Senate Committee by using the search limiter on the left hand side of the search results page. You can also type in Senate Judiciary Committee and the justices name in search box and you will find them.

  • It should be interesting how each side spin hearings.

  • Mr Smith, you say “…spin hearings” do you mean interpret via their perspective.

  • I agree with Mr. Smith on half a point: it will be interesting, I’ve no doubt. I look forward to these hearings, and am thankful for this site. Curious: what do you folks expect from these hearings?
