Nominations September 21, 2007
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Dear Majority Leader Reid, Minority Leader McConnell, Chairman Leahy, and Ranking Member Specter: We served as law clerks for the Honorable Michael B. Mukasey, former Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and the President’s nominee for Attorney General of the United States. Each of us had the privilege of working closely with Judge Mukasey and observing this man of great intellect, integrity, honor, and judgment. We write to express our enthusiastic support for Judge Mukasey’s nomination. Judge Mukasey’s reputation as a careful and wise jurist is well deserved. In each of his cases, Judge Mukasey based his decisions—always thoughtful, carefully crafted, and well- reasoned—on the application of governing laws and legal principles to the facts. As a trial judge, he controlled the courtroom through his decisiveness and mastery of the rules of evidence. In the performance of his judicial duties, the Judge taught us the importance of modesty and humility, for he recognized that with his position came great responsibility that had to be exercised prudently and with care. All who appeared before him were treated with fairness and respect. And as Chief Judge of the district for six years, he managed one of the nation’s busiest and most respected courthouses, all the while attending to a full docket of cases. Because of the close relationship between law clerk and judge, we came to know Judge Mukasey not only as a jurist, but also as a person. The Judge is kind, caring, loyal, ethical, and modest, with a disarming wit and robust sense of humor. He was a wonderful teacher, sharing with us his insights into life, law, and lawyering. Even after leaving our clerkships, the Judge has joined in our significant life events and provided invaluable advice—from attending our weddings, to visiting us following the births of our children, to assisting us with career choices. He remains a true friend and mentor. Finally, Judge Mukasey is deeply patriotic and has spent most of his career in public service, first as an Assistant United States Attorney—a job he speaks of with great pride even years later—and then as a judge. Notwithstanding the immense imposition on him and his family that resulted from the terrorism cases over which he presided, the Judge proceeded without complaint or hesitation, seeing it as part of his duty to the country he loves. The President has now asked Judge Mukasey to serve our country again, this time as Attorney General of the United States. We are certain that he will make an outstanding Attorney General. Judge Mukasey’s keen intelligence, independence and judgment will bring to the country as a whole and to the Department of Justice in particular strong leadership and integrity. We urge you to confirm him as Attorney General without delay. Sincerely, Steven M. Abramowitz, Clerk for Judge Mukasey, 1990-91; Laura Adams, Clerk for Judge Mukasey, 1992-93; David Altschuler, Clerk for Judge Mukasey, 2005-06; Elisabeth Bassin, Clerk for Judge Mukasey, 1989-90; Matthew Beltramo, Clerk for Judge Mukasey, 1997-98; Heana H.

Republican Vision For American Education October 23, 1997
John Shadegg, R-AZ
"It appears that one of the people on this committee, a Mr. Steven Leinwand, a consultant to the Connecticut Education Department, has written a paper and his school of thought has been adopted by the National Association of Mathematics Teachers. And his school of thought is as follows. It is, he writes, downright dangerous to teach children that 6 times 7 is 42. It is dangerous, he says, to teach them basic computational math skills."
