Treasury nominee Lew makes rounds on Capitol Hill

"But as I always say, the devil’s in the details and there’s a lot more of Mr. Lew’s record and qualifications that need to be fully examined," he said. 

Hatch said the Senate Finance Committee, which will oversee his nomination, is still waiting to receive Lew’s paperwork, including his questionnaire and his tax returns to start the vetting process and set a hearing date. 

"I will decide whether I support this nomination when this process moves forward and more of my questions have been answered," Hatch said. 

Lew didn't respond to reporters' questions about how the meeting went. 

While posing for cameras ahead of the meeting, Lew was overheard mentioning a book to Hatch — an autobiography by Louis Brownlow, a political scientist who once called several of President Franklin Roosevelt's advisors men with "a passion for anonymity."
