Supreme Court judge [Kagan] suspected of deception during confirmation hearings

Supreme Court judge suspected of deception during confirmation hearings

A Washington, DC-based public-interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption reported on Friday that its officials have obtained documents suggesting US Supreme Court Associate Justice Elena Kagan helped coordinate the Obama administration’s legal defense of the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) while she served as Solicitor General.

During her confirmation, Kagan claimed she was not involved in the Department of Justice (DOJ) preparations for legal challenges to Obamacare. Moreover, the Supreme Court justice did not recuse herself from the High Court decision in April 2011 when she and other Justices refused to “fast-track” the Supreme Court review of Virginia’s lawsuit challenging Obamacare.

The following are highlights from the documents obtained by Judicial Watch as a result of  a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on February 24, 2011. (Judicial Watch’s lawsuit has been consolidated with a similar FOIA lawsuit that had been first filed against the DOJ by Brent Bozell and the Media Research Center. The lawsuits are now both before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia...)

According to a memo from former Deputy Solicitor General (and current Acting Solicitor General) to Brian Hauck, Senior Counsel to Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, Kagan was involved in the strategy to defend Obamacare from the very beginning...

Too late.

Republican opposition research is non-existent.

Is not lying to congress a “high crime”. Seems to me she could be impeached for lying.

Kagan is a member of the Piarte Roberts’ Court. She does not answer to the people before, during, or after confirmation.

Too late. This might have been blocked if the Republicans had fought it. But they lay down and rolled over—as usual.

I could have figured out the former if I had a clue what you meant by the latter. Sheesh. Nice informative response.

Good strategy — waste your time and mine by making arcane comments on a forum and leave it to others to figure out what you mean. Great communication skills!

Impeach and remove them all then.

One of the things we must do if we are to restore and preserve this republic is to make impeachment and removal the norm for every officer of government who refuses to follow the supreme law of the land, our Constitution.

The lazy Republicans didn’t bother to fight her appointment. Why would they care that she lied? Answer: they don’t. We’ll not hear anymore about this in another day or so. We are stuck with this ultra liberal for the rest of her life.

Sad thing is, even with Republicans controlling 47 seats in the senate, more than enough to filibuster a nomination, if a Justice retired and Obama nominated another Kagan tomorrow, you would have 10 or so RINO’s that wouldn't support a filibuster.

Seems to me that Most members of congress could be recalled for malfeasance in office or at lease official misconduct. There is no representative government without representation of the interests of the electorate. Our government has failed. we are just afraid to admit it.

One instance (Eric Holder) - perhaps an oversight

Two instances (Eric Holder and Tim Geithner) - perhaps a coincidence

Three instances (Eric Holder, Tim Geithner & Elena Kagan)- definitely maybe a pattern...

Tell me about it. I forwarded a Doc to Graham re: Kagans conflict of interest and watched as he shrugged it off.

Will Lindseed excuse her lies to Congress as meaningless.

somehow a lying SC-Judge is not good for the reputation of the Supremes.

Can the rest of the Scotus FORCE her to recuse?

Kagan brought Sharia Law to Harvard and took the millions of Dollars from the Saudis to do so. Kagan was an instrument to get Obamacare passed. What makes one think she lied? My God, it was so obvious a fifth grader could have researched it and proven her intent by actions. Congress/Senate are on the take is the only logical answer.

With this bunch of Republicans in power? Nothing.

But she should be impeached and removed.

Impeached by whom? The gutless stupid party? The only republicans with balls are a few of the women, the rest are eunuchs.

Factually correct. This information should be retained and after 2012, when we get the Senate, impeachment should be started. If we do not reverse all of what this corrupt Administration has done America will never recover. This is serious business. We must dump all the RINOs we can in 2012 also.

Surprise surprise!!

I wrote many Senators pleading with them to filibuster. No dice. Now we live with the consequences. My guess is that Barry will not ALLOW her to recuse herself with the challenge to Obamacare - the keystone to his larger Government and control over EVERY aspect of our lives.

"Camping may well be right about the date but he was all wet about what was going to happen."
with all due respect, this statement is flat out false...the house can bring charges and write up articles of impeachment any damn time it chooses to do so...the senate then votes on impeachement...my question is, why has the house not brought up charges on any judges???
