Posted on 07/06/2011 8:18:10 PM PDT by Nachum
The House Judiciary Committee is launching an investigation to probe the involvement that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan had in health care legislation or litigation when she was serving as President Barack Obamas solicitor general and was responsible for defending the administrations position in federal court cases. The investigation will look at whether Kagan is required by law to recuse herself from judging cases challenging President Obamas health-care law and whether her answers to questions posed by the Senate Judiciary Committee during her confirmation process were accurate.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Does anyone really expect Kagan to recuse herself, do you really think she will suffer any kind of damage or punishment. This will change nothing. Laws do not pertain to rats.
Kagan has no business being on the Supreme Court. NONE! She is unfit and incompetent. IMHO.
Domestic Enemies and Radical Extremists.
small potatoes compared to what she did during the Clinton years during the partial birth abortion debate.
She tampered with a sworn statement from doctors - changed it’s meaning to the opposite of what they actually said, and defrauded the Supreme Court with it.
This alone should have caused her to lose her job, be disbarred, and charged with a crime.
I can’t believe republicans are so spineless that they didn’t fight tooth and nail agains this piece of work.

“The investigation will look at whether Kagan is required by law to recuse herself from judging cases challenging President Obamas health-care law and whether her answers to questions posed by the Senate Judiciary Committee during her confirmation process were accurate”
“Accurate”???? Ya mean did she LIE or perjure herself? And what would the House do about it when the king demands she still can sit on this issue?
>Maybe we can have two impeachment trials....<
I doubt that they will go so far as to challenge her for lying under oath during her confirmation hearings.
But it will screw Obama out of his ace in the hole on the health care law when it goes before the SCOTUS
One thing that _shouldn’t_ have surprised me is when they went after “one of ours” to recuse himself in the 0bamacare case,
because they knew that one of theirs SHOULD recuse herself due to blatant involvement and conflict of interest.
The left always accuses others of what they’re doing.
Seriously, I don’t know WHAT she is,
and I couldn’t care less about her “preferences”.
But she was put on the court for the very reason of advancing the commies’ agenda, so there’s no way she will recuse herself in this grand step forward called 0bamacare.
And there’s no way an impeachment will force the issue, either.
