[JURIST] The Bush administration has declined requests from the US Senate Judiciary Committee [official website] to produce classified legal opinions on the NSA's domestic spying program [JURIST news archive] for a hearing scheduled for Monday [hearing notice; JURIST report]. The Department of Justice has said that the requested documents would add nothing to the debate that has not already been publicly released in defense of the program [JURIST report]. Committee Chairman Arlen Specter (R-PA), however, said on Wednesday that he still had "a lot of questions" about the legality of the program and that the disclosure of the legal opinions was "not a closed matter". Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be the only witness at the hearing [JURIST report]. The New York Times has more.
