Megyn Kelly today aired the second portion of an interview with J. Christian Adams, a former Department of Justice (DOJ) attorney. Adams says a mandate within the DOJ requires no charges will be made against blacks with a white victim accuses them of voter intimidation. The DOJ’s answer to Adams’ charges is simply that Adams is a Conservative. When does voter intimidation hinge on a political persuasion?
You’ll remember that the New Black Panthers stood outside a Philadelphia polling place in November 2008, one with a nightstick. A poll minder who served as Robert Kennedy’s campaign aide was there and says there was definitely intimidation going on, and others said the same. From Adam’s resignation letter, we learn that these men threatened the attorneys inside DOJ.
Adams resigned his position after a DOJ Civil Rights Division head instructed the attorneys on the case to dismiss it, even though a default judgement had been brought. Evidence was strong against the New Black Panther Party members. For five months they refused to answer the court or show up for court, thus the default judgement.
Rep. Frank Wolf tried (R-VA) tried to refile the case. He was denied the opportunity to interview the lead attorneys. Subpoenas were let, one for J. Christian Adams, and the DOJ refused to let him honor it. In Adams resignation letter he noted that he was forced to ignore lawful subpoenas:
…the subpoena is based on an explicit federal statute and seeks answers about why the case was dismissed. I have incurred significant personal expense in retaining a number of separate attorneys and firms regarding this subpoena in order to protect my interests and advise me about my personal legal obligations to comply with the subpoena.
The following is also in his letter of resignation:
As you also know, the defendants in the New Black Panther lawsuit have become increasingly belligerent in their rhetoric toward the attorneys who brought the case…
So DOJ attorneys were threatened by the New Black Panthers and the answer from the DOJ was, hey we’re not prosecuting any blacks for any voter intimidation crimes against whites.
Here’s some information about the men accused:
Malik Zulu Shabazz is a Howard University Law School grad and a resident of Washington, D.C. Jerry Jackson is credentialed to be at a the polling place as he is a 14th Ward Democratic Committee member. “Minister” King Samir Shabazz says he is “about the total destruction of white people.” Attorney Eric Holder is doing his part to help his brother. Is it too far out to believe they are serious in the intensity of whites? I don’t think so, and now the government we put in place has their back.
For the record, Christian Adams says there is a “creeping lawlessness” inside the Department of Justice.
