Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) requested Friday that Chuck Hagel, the former Nebraska Senator nominated for Secretary of Defense, give Congress access to his archives at the University of Nebraska and past speeches from the Washington Speakers Bureau, the agency that coordinated his past public speaking engagements.

“During your appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee, you committed to fully cooperating with Senate requests to disclose information about your record,” Graham wrote in letter to Hagel. “‘Everything that is out there that we can find we’ll make every effort to get it and provide it,’ you told Chairman Levin.”

Despite Hagel’s promises at the confirmation hearing, he has refused to fully disclose financial documents, past speeches, records, and documents he submitted to the University of Nebraska that could shed more light on his associations with groups that could be allied with states that support terror.
