More evidence that the Department of Justice’s dismissal of the voter intimidation case case against the New Black Panthers was purely political:
The e-mails show two political appointees’ involvement in Justice’s decision to dismiss, the watchdog group says. And, it notes, those e-mails contradict what Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for Justice’s Civil Rights Division, told the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights under oath: that decision involved “only career people.”
The e-mails lend additional credence to the long-held suspicion that politics drove Justice’s decision-making in this case. They also go a long way toward answering a key question: What is Attorney General Eric Holder hiding with his stonewalling against the commission’s investigation?
“These documents show that not only was the Black Panther decision shamelessly politicized by the Obama administration but also that Obama officials lied to cover up the scandal,” says Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president.
Remember – our system is juuuuuust fine.
