Hagel Blocks Access to University of Nebraska Archive

Hagel Blocks Access to University of Nebraska Archive

According to the Weekly Standard, Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel continues to block access to his archive at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. There are piles of papers, speeches, and multimedia by or about Hagel at the university. Yet reporters are barred from seeing them. Hagel spokesman Marie Harf blathered, “Chuck Hagel’s record in the Senate is well documented in the public domain. Given his extraordinary disclosures to date, which surpass the threshold applied to nominees, there is no need to make this archived material public.”

The university says that the archives will eventually become available for viewing, but gave no timeline; administrators acknowledged that if Hagel were to grant access, the university could comply with his requests.
