Due to technical difficulties, this program has occasional low audio.

In the afternoon session Senator Specter questions Judge Bork

extensively about First Amendment rights and his statements the

previous day. Senators Leahy and Simpson take opposite sides in

questioning Bork concerning what Leahy calls a "confirmation

conversion." Leahy asserts that Bork has changed his stance during

the hearings for convenience and Simpson claims Bork has made no such

change.

Senator Kennedy challenges Bork’s criticisms of Court decisions on

the balance of power between the executive and legislative branches

of government. Senator DeConcini, considered a swing vote on the

committee, also questions Judge Bork on his First Amendment views. close
