The newest member of the U.S. Supreme Court, Associate Justice Elena Kagan, says the confirmation process is “sort of broken.”
Kagan made her remarks Friday during an address to students at the University of Alabama.
Kagan says senators want to know how nominees will rule on cases, yet the would-be justices are limited in what they can say. Kagan says that leaves senators frustrated and results in what she calls “political theater” in which nominees listen while senators make speeches.
