After her nomination to the Supreme Court in May, Sonia Sotomayor will begin her confirmation hearings on Monday. The Daily News reports that among the "A-list of cops, prosecutors and pols" to testify are Mayor Bloomberg, former Yankee pitcher David Cone, Manhattan DA Robert Morgenthau (her first boss), and ex-FBI director Louis Freeh. Cone was the union rep during the 1994 baseball strike and Freeh was a fellow U.S. District Court judge; Freeh told NPR, "I haven't read anything in her opinions that would make me think, from a conservative point of view, that there is anything 'radical' or off the mainstream." As for coverage of the hearings, they will be broadcast live on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News and will be available on various online news sites.
