WH won’t show all Roberts’ work
The Chicago Sun Times is reporting that a senior Bush administration official has said that the WH will release Roberts’ work for President Reagan in the 1980s, but documents relating to Roberts’ tenure as principal deputy solicitor general for President George H.W. Bush between 1989 and 1993 will not be released.
To date, there has been relatively little for Democrats to use in their opposition to Roberts’ nomination. However, this development may provide the ability to portray Bush as an obstructionist, even if it is not enough for Senate Democrats to oppose Roberts’ nomination.
