Hagel declines to answer questions about releasing more documents

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) met with Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) on Capitol Hill Thursday. The two met in original Appropriations Committee hearing room in the Capitol.

A Democratic aide said Mikulski, as Appropriations chair, planned to discuss the looming sequester with Hagel.

The two took no questions during a brief photo opp. Hagel declined to answer questions about whether he would release additional documents to the Armed Services Committee, as Republicans are requesting.

A vote in the committee on his nomination, originally planned for today, was delayed, as Republicans are asking for more about his financials and speeches.
