Justice Kagan's Impeachable Offense Cited

Suspect two-month 'gap' suggests perjury in Senate confirmation

She has come under fire from conservatives for not recusing herself from the health care case, since she was solicitor general for Mr. Obama from March 2009 through May 2010. She stopped taking part in cases in March 2010, when she learned that she was under consideration for the high court, in order to preserve her ability to take part in rulings as a justice.

The health care legislation was signed in March 2010, but emails show her colleagues began talking about a legal strategy as early as January, leaving one top Republican congressman to question the “two-month gap” in the record.
