Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., has told Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan what issues he plans to raise at her confirmation hearing next month: compensation for victims of the Holocaust and the 9/11 terrorist attacks, as well as warrantless wiretapping.

Specter, a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, built a national profile with his questioning of previous Supreme Court picks, including failed nominee Robert Bork. Because Specter lost his state’s Democratic primary this month, Kagan’s confirmation hearing will be his last.
