  • Press release, January 5, 2005: “Senator Edward M. Kennedy held a roundtable meeting with reporters to discuss the upcoming hearings on Judge Alito’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Kennedy outlined the questions Judge Alito must answer regarding his commitment to core constitutional rights and freedoms as well as the growing credibility gaps between the assurances he gave to Senators in 1990 and now, and his writings, his speeches, and his 15 years of opinions. Kennedy also indicated that Judge Alito would face questions about executive power and the President’s domestic surveillance program. This will be Senator Kennedy’s 23rd Supreme Court nomination.”
