Recuse Or Impeach?

The plan all along was to get her on the bench for this one issue.

Internal Justice Department email communications made just days before the House of Representatives passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act show that then-Solicitor General Elena Kagan was brought into the loop as DOJ began preparing to respond to an anticipated legal complaint that Mark Levin and the Landmark Legal Foundation were planning to file against the act if the House used a procedural rule to “deem” the bill passed even if members never directly voted on it.
In another internal DOJ email communication that same week, Kagan alerted the chief of DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel to the constitutional argument that a former U.S. Appeals Court judge was making against the use of this rule.
Then, during Kagan’s Supreme Court confirmation process four months later, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee asked her in writing if she had “ever been asked about your opinion” or “offered any view or comments” on the “the underlying legal or constitutional issues related to any proposed health care legislation, including but not limited to Pub. L. No. 111-148 [PPACA], or the underlying legal or constitutional issues related to potential litigation resulting from such legislation?"
Kagan answered both questions: “No.”
There is enough evidence to impeach Kagan, Holder and the clown in the White House if any Republican in Congress has the stones to do what is right.
Lying to Congress used to be a crime before we turned into a third world dictatorship.
Better thinkers than I think impeachment is in order.

Kagan should be impeached. Unfortunately, I doubt that she'll even be forced to recuse herself from the Obamacare case.

I'm thinking if she fails to recuse, the voting proportions in the 113th will be sufficient to impeach (for entirely independent electoral reasons). Exactly as the Founders intended it to be.

If she wants to hang around, she'd be smart to recuse.

Gosh, Randy! Calling Kagan "Hon"?
You couldn't be that lonely, could you?

Proof, was that really called for? If I had feelings they would be hurt, if I had feelings.

No doubt!

There is no end to the weaseliness of this administration.

Nothing this crowd does surprises me any more. The Rule of Law means nothing to them!
