Did Arlen Specter and Pat Leahy send a letter like this to John Roberts?
While the question about her lapsed bar dues is interesting, I am most interested in the request regarding question 17, which asks Miers for detail regarding her positions on constitutional law issues while serving as Counsel to the President. (Among these issues: affirmative action!) I have a feeling she is going to refuse to go into specifics on that one, despite the Senators’ statement that learning about “the specifics of that experience” is “important.”
I am also interested in her response to the follow-up question regarding question 22, concerning possible recusal issues that might arise should she become a justice.
