COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN RELATIONS
UNITED STATES SENATE
Senator Lugar’s Opening Statement
This is the current line-up’s third Marshall Scholar, after Kurt Campbell, EAP nominee and
Philip Gordon Daniel Benjamin, nominee for S/CT. Hearing will be on C-SPAN3 today at 2:15pm ET. Look for the link to the hearing here.
Update 4/28 9:14 pm: Senator Lugar has submitted pre-hearing questions to Legal Adviser-Designate Harold Hongju Koh. The questions and the response are here (pdf). The link in cspan seems to have disappeared right now. But you can watch the hearing at SFRC here (video starts at 9:40). When you get to the specific hearing page, click on “NOMINATION” (green big letters), that’s the link to the Senate live stream for this hearing. It’s a wacky set-up, but I could not locate a direct link to the video at this time. Somebody please tell SFRC that posting their videos this way really sucks!?!!
Found a Senate.gov video link of hearing here (h/t to Koh’s Facebook supporters’ page)
