Government Will Release Previously Restricted Clinton White House Records
WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Archives says it will release previously restricted records from the Clinton White House on Supreme Court nominations, Osama bin Laden and Vice President Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign.
About 1,000 pages of documents will be released Friday through the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., part of a months-long release of White House records. About 20,000 pages of records from Clinton’s two terms have been disseminated since February.
The memos and papers will cover the Supreme Court nominations of Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer along with papers related to Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who was nominated by then-President Bill Clinton to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1997.
Other documents pertain to bin Laden, issues in Rwanda, Haiti and Sudan, along with Gore’s unsuccessful presidential bid.
