Kagan advice to Clinton on sex scandal to be kept secret

Bill Clinton's presidential library is keeping secret memos and notes Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan wrote in connection with the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit.

Kagan was deeply involved in defending Clinton in the lawsuit brought by the ex-Arkansas state worker that touched off events leading to Clinton's impeachment, according to documents released Friday.  The library held back several of Kagan's memos to Clinton's top advisers in the case, saying that publicly releasing them would
divulge confidential advice.

The White House has said such documents will be given only to the Senate Judiciary Committee that will hold hearings on Kagan's nomination.
