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: Thats 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. Youre 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, Youre 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. Its the easiest case I ever had at the Justice Department. It doesnt get any easier than this. If this doesnt constitute voter intimidation, nothing will.
KELLY: And you had, you had not just that video tape, which weve all now seen, but you had witness testimony from some credible witnesses who were there.

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.
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.
I watched the interview and also recorded it. The interview will continue tomorrow, which I will also record
This whole scandal stinks to high heaven.
excellent interview. Guy was totally believable.
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.
"WHAT NIGHT STICK!?"
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.
PART 2 IS TOMORROW SHE SAID..AND IT IS EVEN MORE EXPLOSIVE.
Two words for the kind of lawlessness the DOJ & Obama are setting up: Open season
Congress hate,i mean really hates,bing lied to. There will be plenty of noise going ahead with it becoming a huge roar should they win back the house.
Yes, I did, I also taped it. It was a great interview. Megyn Kelly rocks. Tomorrow will be part 2
The tall black panther is an elected official in Philly? Holy cr@p! We are so screwed!
the interview just came out today
We all know who the real racists are and it isn’t the Tea Partiers.
