Alito and wiretapping

From the Dec. 24 LA Times:

Supreme Court nominee Samuel A. Alito Jr. said in a 1984 memo that he believed the president’s top lawyer should be shielded from being sued for approving illegal, warrantless wiretaps on the grounds of national security, an issue that has flared anew and could complicate his Senate confirmation next month.

I wonder what, if any, effect this will have on his confirmation chances.
