FNC Exclusive: Former DOJ Attorney Discusses New Black Panther Party Voter Intimidation Case
Fox News ^ | 30 June 2010 | MEGYN KELLY

Posted on 06/30/2010 12:01:37 PM PDT by SkyPilot

J. CHRISTIAN ADAMS, FORMER JUSTIC DEPARTMENT LAWYER: Well, people were standing in front of the polls with weapons in Philadelphia on the day that President Obama was elected in 2008. The Justice Department brought a case in January under the voter intimidation statutes against the New Black Panther Party, the individuals who organized the deployment and the folks with the weapons in Philadelphia at the polls.

MEGYN KELLY, "AMERICA LIVE" HOST: Ok, and so the guy we see banging the baton, he was one defendant. The guy next to him who was said to have been saying intimidating things, he was a defendant. The New Black Panther Party was a defendant and the head of it was a defendant.

ADAMS: That’s right, all four.

KELLY: Ok, and what was basically the heart of the case against them.

ADAMS: Yeah, this 1965 Voting Rights Act protects voters from voter intimidation. You’re supposed to be able to go vote without somebody with a weapon shouting racial slurs at you like these folks were doing in Philadelphia.

KELLY: What were they saying?

ADAMS: Well, they said, “You’re about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker”. They called people “white devils”. They menaced, they tapped their baton. They tried to stop people from entering the polls.

KELLY: Is there any question in your mind that that violates the law.

ADAMS: No, nor anybody that worked on the case. It’s the easiest case I ever had at the Justice Department. It doesn’t get any easier than this. If this doesn’t constitute voter intimidation, nothing will.

KELLY: And you had, you had not just that video tape, which we’ve all now seen, but you had witness testimony from some credible witnesses who were there.

FOX ran with this interview as breaking news in the last hour.

The rest of this inteview is at the link.

I have always been amazed that this scandal has not caught fire and burned those involved who were so blatantly involved in racial intimidation, judicial malpractice, and a massive cover up by Eric Holder and Obama's underlings.

ADAMS: Well, the testimony has been that Steve Rosenbaum and Loretta King, two political officials at the Department ordered the dismissal of the case. Of course that was the first story. Eventually it was revealed that there were more people involved. But originally Steve Rosenbaum and Loretta King, two political appointees did.

Former Justice Department Lawyer Accuses Holder of Dropping New Black Panther Case for Racial Reasons

A former Justice Department attorney who quit his job to protest the Obama administration's handling of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping the charges for racially motivated reasons. J. Christian Adams, now an attorney in Virginia and a conservative blogger, says he and the other Justice Department lawyers working on the case were ordered to dismiss it. "I mean we were told, 'Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,'" Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.

There’s no outrage because the Republicans in Congress are gutless and don’t want to touch race issues, especially if it involves black or hispanic racists.

But Adams told Fox News that politics and race was at play in the dismissal. "There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases," Adams told Fox News' Megyn Kelly. Adams says the dismissal is a symptom of the Obama administration's reverse racism and that the Justice Department will not pursue voting rights cases against white victims. Adams also says that after the dismissal, Justice Department attorneys were instructed not to bring any more cases against racial minorities under the Voting Section.

This whole scandal stinks to high heaven.

I would suppose if this becomes commonplace, kneecaps will be lost and crowds will gather to move these “gentlemen” to another location. Most likely a hospital environment.

Did you see the video that FOX News showed of the Black Panther spokesman losing it on camera when answering questions about the case?

"WHAT NIGHT STICK!?"

Incredible.

I have never seen footage of that interview before.

If redneck whites showed up to intimidate black voters, it would have been a far different story.

Other than being the reverse, there isn’t much difference between guys in white hoods showing up at a mostly black polling place.

obama and his thugs are idiots and racists.

I am no third party proponent... but the repubic party of today is just an extension of the dim party... America appears to be lost... we have no moderate or Conservative elected leaders left... only posers playing a role to perpetuate their own power and wealth. PROVE ME WRONG PLEASE!
