Harlan Crow Refuses to Give Senators Information About Gifts to Clarence Thomas - The New York Times

The billionaire Republican donor Harlan Crow refused this week to comply with the Senate Judiciary Committee’s request to hand over information about gifts and travel he provided to Justice Clarence Thomas.

“After careful consideration, we do not believe the committee has the authority to investigate Mr. Crow’s personal friendship with Justice Clarence Thomas,” Michael D. Bopp, Mr. Crow’s lawyer, wrote to the panel on Monday.

Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois and the chairman of the committee, balked at the rejoinder, saying in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Crow had not provided a “credible response” to his panel’s requests.
