Skip to comments.New info indicates Justice Kagan's conflict of interest on ObamaCare

When former Obama Administration attorney Elena Kagan was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by Barack Obama, conservatives warned that the nominee was perhaps the most politically partisan Justice that has ever served on the high court. Kagan had served as Obama's Solicitor-General and was responsible for defending his policies in court cases.But new information has surfaced today that may indicate a stark conflict of interest when it comes Kagan and the Supreme Court's decision on the constitutionality of ObamaCare.
As a result of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch and CNSNews in response to the Justice Department's refusal to release documents pertaining to Kagan in a Freedom-of-Information-Act request, the DOJ released redacted documents late Wednesday evening which indicate that Kagan would need to recuse herself from any case pertaining to ObamaCare that makes it to the Supreme Court.
The reason is an email exchange between Kagan and Lawrence Tribe, who at the time was serving in the Department of Justice. The redacted email exchange released by the DOJ can be found here.
On the eve of the vote on ObamaCare, Kagan emailed Tribe to say, "I hear they have the votes, Larry!! Simply amazing."

Kagan is a Democrat, so normal rules no longer apply to her.
It’s a “CHANGE!” thingy. You wouldn’t understand.
Regarding the author and his history at Free Republic:
Anthony Martin got zotted for threatening legal action against individual FReepers.
Then he wrote a whiny blog post about it.
Then he was brutally mocked for it.
Hes a putz.
,,,,,,,, the fix is in ,,,,,, don’t hold your breath waiting for ms. Kagan to recuse herself ,,,, she’ll have to go kicking and screaming if at all .
This government will always protect their own. Kagan could be a mass murdering child molester and the fascist pigs running the federal government would protect their little pig.
Sorry if my sentiment is a little strong today, but I just got served with a Medicare audit this week by a bounty hunting shake down company. This is despite the fact that my staff and billing personnel talk to Medicare reps on correct billing pracices all the time. Entrap, criminalize and plunder the little guy.
F the Feds.
