President Bush addressed an audience at the Museum of American History on the confirmation process, approximately two weeks after the reopened Supreme Court confirmation hearings for U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas. President Bush called upon Congress to change the confirmation process, and named a number of proposals to reform the process. He was harshly critical of whoever leaked a confidential F.B.I. report regarding sexual harassment charges against Judge Clarence Thomas. One of Mr. Bush’s proposals would restrict Congress' access to F.B.I. reports like the one concerning the judge. The president also urged Congress to appoint a special counsel to find out who leaked the information. close
