New Documents Show Kagan Backing The Clintons In Whitewater Case

June 17, 2010 by  

New documents show Kagan backing the Clintons in Whitewater caseAs investigations into the legal writings of President Obama’s latest Supreme Court pick continue, evidence has come to light that suggests Elena Kagan strongly backed former President Bill Clinton in the Whitewater case.

The case involved a congressional investigation into allegations that Clinton and his wife were involved in illegal real estate deals when he was serving as governor of Arkansas.

As a top lawyer in the White House counsel’s office in 1995 and 1996 Kagan wrote several memos and letters in which she contacted Clinton’s supporters asking them to write positive opinion pieces about the president that would appear in national newspapers, according to CNN.

She also argued in support of Clinton’s rights to confidentiality as president in the Whitewater case and in a later sexual harassment scandal.

The revelations came after the Clinton Presidential Library in Arkansas released 42,000 new pages of files.

Kagan is currently serving as United States Solicitor General, and was nominated by President Obama in May to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens on the Supreme Court. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19836661-ADNFCR

    Just another Commie Czar in the Kenyan’s Politburo.

  • Al Sieber

    Gee… it’s hard to believe she backed the Clintons in Whitewater, I’m shocked!!! how much more of this in your face crap are we gonna take? all these people are criminals. I can’t believe we sunk this low. they all need to be kicked out of this country.

  • http://Adultbloggingisfunny! Rhea

    Why is it that the Obama people are needing kicking out even before they are in their offices. for cutting edge news.

  • s c

    So, Kagan is just another willing tool. What a shocking surprise. Gee whiz, boys and girls, it looks like the head puppet in the White House knows how to pick LOSERS, but he couldn’t pick winners if he had a functional crystal ball.
    In the real world, when there is an appearance of a conflict of interest, normal people back away from it. In a theoretician’s world, that’s like FLIES ON STINK. When a lawyer specializes in ‘molding’ public opinion, then the LAST place to put that vermin is on the Supreme Court.
    Now, if she worked for Wal Mart or a DMV, she’d be where she belongs. She could show America how versatile and tough she is if she worked in an oil field. Or, she could give advice to Joy Behar on how to be a happy, dumbed-down puppet on TV. The possibilities are almost endless. Frankly, I’d like to see Kagan shoveling elephant cookies in a zoo.
    One MUST know one’s limitations, eh?

    And, what was the deal? I will sell you land at $300.00 per month for 360 months. It will be your retirement home in the beauuuuuuutifulllll mountains, with springs, wildlife, etc. etc. Then, after paying for years, you missed your 359th payment and the land was FORECLOSED UPON! That’s right! YOU GOT SCREWED! I don’t recall the specifics, so I might be off a little. But this was the jist, that I understood it, at the time. (Also, don’t forget the $100K Hillary “won” overnight in the “Chicago” commodity trade. She gave a broker 10K at 5pm and at 8am it turned into $100K. And, they put Martha Stewart in jail for what she did.) When are we dumb-a$$ Americans going to get it straight, that Democrats say they hate the rich, and then will do what ever it takes to screw the American public! SHAME ON ALL LIBERAL COMMIES WHO INFEST OUR GOVERNMENT! And, this woman, who has never beena judge, is going to sit on the Supreme Court for the REST OF HER LIFE! WAKE UP, AMERICA!

  • TIME

    Folks, She is 100% totaly wrong for this job. She has displayed many times the lacking ability to remove her self from the issue.
    That lends its self to preversion of the law for political gain.

    The SC’s job is to look at case law then compare such with the two solid bases of our countrys law, (“the Constitution and the Bill of
    rights,”) then come to a point of view that will “not infringe” on the the two solid base’s of our law of the land.

    There is no living doucment that needs change within the noted Base of what makes us the United States of America. In plain words the Constitution nor the Bill of Rights need to be altered for any reason.

    With just that fact alone there is no possible way that she should be sworn in to the SC as a life time member of the court.
    She has clearly displayed her beliefes over an over again, and they do not shelter the average American citizen.
    They instead “shelter only the elite Political thugs”.

  • jr bob

    This must be the punishment for violating the constitution and electing criminals to office. we get screwed. that is real punishment.

  • jr bob

    oh time i think she showed us her breifs with clinton. I ment breifs as panties. I am sorry her mouth.

  • Claire

    Why am I not surprised? I still say the people of the United States should elect these judges, NOT the parties!!!

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Careful, what would have happened if two or three had been up in 2008 when Odummer got elected? All of them would have been liberal shills!! At least this way we have a tiny chance of one party keeping the other in check. Except, of course, when they have a super majority like now!

      • Claire

        Joe H– You’re right. But still, I do not think the parties should pick the Supreme Court judges. It should be left to the Americans. Maybe that way we would have a “balanced” bunch of judges? I don’t know. It just seems so dang corrupt.

  • http://gmail i41

    Still don’t think all democrats are socialists, eleitist, do nothing theorists? All are spoiled brats, most are lawyers leeches, live of of other peoples’ misery. As Onumnut stated , he has assembled a group of eleitist,over educated, theorists like him, they just dream and never will accept the fact they alone are to blame for the oily mess. In 1995, Whore hound Clinton, created the bill, to not collect revenue from off shoe drilling in deep water. The taxes on revenue from oil is over 16%. After watching “Chucky Cheese” rat Waxelnose Waxman on c-span today and his whining. It shows what a bunch of socialist democrat bastards, that are trying to make everything government owned and controlled. Still think democrats beleive in citizens and states’ rights, listen to the Sec. of State talking about up coming internal judical policy several days ago, on a foreign state TV, on the Kenyan croassbred planning on suing AZ. over the immigration law? I think it is time to go looking, for any democrap polition, who is out running for office. There isn’t one democrat sorry azzed moron pol that didn’t swing in on Onumnuts coat tail and has voted non stop with the muslim socialist phony. Hang them High, they are guilty as charged.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

    What’s surprising about this? She is a Democrat and there is no law that the Democrats aren’t above. Only a Republican has to obey our laws and MORAL standards. The Democrats are above and excused from obeying our laws and especially our moral standards. This is proven out by the way the Liberal Media cover infractions by both. So why wouldn’t you think Elena Kagan wouldn’t support the Clintons over the Law in the Whitewater Case, for she and they are Democrats.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      don’t be deceived. the repubs don’t follow the law either!!! Just give any politician the chance to break a law and think they can get away with it and listen for the breakage!!!

      • Claire

        Joe H– I have to agree with you again!

    • Paterfamilias

      Do you know how dumb those remarks sound? The Whitewater case has been over and done with for more than a decade. No evidence of a crime was found — not even by the most determined Republican prosecutors. Do YOU suddenly have some evidence that Kenneth Starr overlooked, or are you just talking to make spit?

      • Smilee

        I guess Kagan was on the right side of that case to, no one believes she will not be approved and that is why all the wild statements on this site because they know it too and it tees them off.

  • Amanda

    It’s funny because I didn’t once see anything about her breaking the law. Everyone on this site would like to have her kicked out of government. Why? Is she not allowed to have her own opinion and support whomever she’d like? Because the last time I checked, she had that right.

    • Antonio

      It’s funny that people like you still don’t get it. You have a brick wall in front of your face. She may have a “right” to her opinions, but she does not have the right to force her opinions on the American people. You must understand that a supreme court judge is the most vital position someone can hold. They are the ones who decide what is constitutional and what is not. She is a socialists who is out to destroy the rest of this country. If you live in the USA you should at least take an interest in this land because what they are doing to it will affect YOU. It wouldn’t hurt you to do some research on the whitewater scandle. In fact, why don’t you research NWO and learn why they want these people in those positions. They want them there so that they can take away what little rights you still have in order for them to implement the NWO.

      • Paterfamilias

        Ohhhh. I see. So believing in socialism disqualifies anyone from being a Supreme Court Justice? Where is THAT law written? What country did YOU grow up in?

        • Antonio

          I grew up in Colombia. It’s too bad that you don’t know about your own country.

        • JC

          We have a document here in the United States upon which we founded our nation. We call it the Constsution of the United States of America. That document grants everyone the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

          Socialism is the antithesis to that philosophy. So, Welcome to the United States, now learn something about it before you go spouting off mornic babble. Maybe get your green card while you’re at it.

    • Jeep

      The SC was intended to interpret the law if and only the lower courts were unable to. Period. Although she may have a thorough knowledge of law (being a former dean at Harvard Law) the bottom line is that she has demonstrated a liberal mindset throughout her academic and public life. BLUF – she’s another “rubber stamp” for liberalism.

      • Paterfamilias

        Yeah, right. A “rubber stamp” for liberalism — just like Clarence (hair in my Coke) Thomas is a rubber stamp for Antonin Scalia.

    • JC

      Amanda, she’s most certainly allowed to have her opinions, it’s the American way right? Thing is, she’s made her opinions and her track record quite public. Which leads us to the understanding that she advocates the destruction of the Constitution and that disqualifies her from having her opinions…on the bench of the Supreme Court.
      We might as well have Ghe Guevera up there.
      Sorry, she’s as competely unnacceptable as the Kenyan Imposter.

      • JC

        Or “Che” Guevera even…

      • Paterfamilias

        Now THAT’S interesting. Kindly cite the evidence for her wanting to “destroy the Constitution.” What writings or actions have specifically displayed her intent to do so?

        • Smilee

          JC has none, he is just an angry far right winger shooting out their BS

        • JC

          Boys and girls…her track record is anti-Constitution and anti-American. Just like you two morons.

          • Smilee

            Just your opinion and it is pure BS

        • JC

          PS…to you two degenerates everything looks far right.
          That’s what happens when you’re so far left you’ve disappeared over the horizon.

          • Smilee


            Funny, Truth is neither left or right, but the truth is clearly not something that is important to you

  • Stop Whineing

    I can’t believe I actually read this stupid crap.

  • NomadFox

    If you have not notice, Obama has surrounded himself with criminals. What is 1 more for the BIG government crime wave? All the Sheep will go where they are directed and the Constitution will be buried. I am scared!!!!

    • Claire

      NomadFox–Never be scared, fight back, Stand up for your rights.

  • Paterfamilias

    Wow! Big deal! Kenneth Starr spent years trying to nail the Clintons on Whitewater and couldn’t, but your shorts are in knots because Kagan backed him. Stop, already, with the dumb conspiracy theories and get a life!

    • Antonio

      Hey ding dong, this is why nobody could really ever prosecute the Clintons.

Yet, two rounds in the handgun’s cylinder had been spent.
      He had long served as executive vice president and member of the board of directors for a company called Alltel and was deeply involved in his own software engineering company until the day he died.

      Carlos Ghigliotti: 42, was found dead in his home just outside of Washington D.C. on April 28, 2000. There was no sign of a break-in or struggle at the firm of Infrared Technology where the badly decomposed body of Ghigliotti was found. Ghigliotti had not been seen for several weeks.
      Ghigliotti, a thermal imaging analyst hired by the House Government Reform Committee to review tape of the siege, said he determined the FBI fired shots on April 19, 1993. The FBI has explained the light bursts on infrared footage as reflections of sun rays on shards of glass or other debris that littered the scene.
      “I conclude this based on the groundview videotapes taken from several different angles simultaneously and based on the overhead thermal tape,” Ghigliotti told The Washington Post last October. “The gunfire from the ground is there, without a doubt.”
      Ghigliotti said the tapes also confirm the Davidians fired repeatedly at FBI agents during the assault, which ended when flames raced through the compound. About 80 Branch Davidians perished that day, some from the fire, others from gunshot wounds.
      Mark Corallo, a spokesman for the congressional committee chaired by Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind., said that police found the business cards of a committee investigator in Ghigliotti’s office. Corallo said Ghigliotti’s work for the committee ended some time ago.
      Tony Moser: 41, was killed as he crossed a street in Pine Bluff, Ark on on June 10, 2000. Killed 10 days after being named a columnist for the Democrat-Gazette newspaper and two days after penning a stinging indictment of political corruption in Little Rock.
      Police have concluded that no charges will be filed against the unnamed driver of a 1995 Chevrolet pickup, which hit Moser as he was walking alone in the middle of unlit Rhinehart Road about 10:10 p.m
      Police say they have ruled out foul play and will file no charges against the driver because he was not intoxicated and there was no sign of excessive speed.

    and this is why we need to kick her out of government period!!!

    If the U.S. Senate approves President Obama’s nomination of Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court, it will be the end of the First Amendment right of free speech and move the United States a giant leap closer to Obama’s goal of making us a socialist nation and becoming America’s first dictator.

    Kagan, has only written nine articles in her career and in those writings, she has made her stance on the restriction of free speech clearly evident. Starting with her 1993 University of Chicago Law Review article, “Regulation of Hate Speech and Pornography After R.A.V,” Kagan wrote, “I take it as a given that we live in a society marred by racial and gender inequality, that certain forms of speech perpetuate and promote this inequality, and that the uncoerced disappearance of such speech would be cause for great elation.”

    Just having such speech disappear is not enough for nominee Kagan. In her 1996 paper, “Private Speech, Public Purpose: The Role of Government Motive in First Amendment Doctrine”, she actually believes that the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution “is best understood and most readily explained as a kind of motive-hunting.” She went on to support the idea that it is acceptable for the government to restrict any form of speech if it is deemed to be offensive to society or to the government.

    In the case of United States v. Stevens, first argued in 2009, the brief, which was signed by Kagan, stated, “Whether a given category of speech enjoys First Amendment protection depends upon a categorical balancing of the value of the speech against its societal costs.”

    Does the First Amendment allow for the freedom or restriction of speech to be determined against societal costs? What it does say is, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances” (emphasis mine). At the time our Founding Fathers wrote the U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights, the term ‘abridging’ meant ‘to deprive’ or ‘diminish’. They understood the importance of giving people the right to openly criticize their government, especially when those criticisms were justifiable. Yet, Elena Kagan is determined to redefine ‘abridging’ to mean that those in charge will have the power and legal right to determine what one can say about the government, about sinful lifestyles or anything else that might be deemed offensive by the leadership or the vocal minority.

    Most of you don’t want any more freedoms taken and it is your duty to fight wherever you can at this point..sign petition to stop KAGAN!

      My cousin in California died around the same time. Were the Clintons also responsible for that?

      Stop smoking whatever it is you’re smoking, and go take your meds.

    You can’t be ignorant all your life paterfamilias wake up

    • JC

      Antonio, you are right on the ball.

    • Paterfamilias

      Gosh, you must know something that Kenneth Starr doesn’t, even though he did everything but perform a colonoscopy on the Clintons during the Whitewater investigation. I’m impressed. When will you be appearing on Fox News?
