Justice at the Justice Department?
Fox News ^ | September 30, 2010 | Shannon Bream

Posted on 09/30/2010 6:33:51 PM PDT by jazusamo

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) says it's time for answers, and he's tired of the Department of Justice "stonewalling" him. He's referring to allegations from current and former DOJ attorneys that leadership within the department has advised employees that voting rights laws are meant to protect minorities, not whites, and will be enforced accordingly.

Wolf says other DOJ employees, who wish to remain anonymous, have made similar allegations. "I made it very clear to Eric Holder he ought not to be pushing these people around, that they should be encouraged to go forward and testify openly," Wolf says.

The Virginia Republican says he, and other members, have repeatedly asked House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) to launch a congressional probe. That has yet to happen, but if Republicans retake the House on November 2nd, there is a strong possibility that will change.

It is clear that commissioners now hearing the case view the testimony and evidence very differently. Todd Gaziano, who holds one of the independent seats, says the reasons behind the decisions regarding the New Black Panther case equal "a scandal of epic proportions," Gaziano says.

Sounds like Frank Wolf will push this after the Republicans take back the House.

Under Obama the Justice Department was dissolved and replaced by an Injustice Department.

if we never had a bias media and had the GOP with balls then there would be more people shouting about this.

This so called DOJ has been nothing but a disgusting political hack, ignoring laws when it suits them.

The whole Obama admin is BURNT TOAST and any number of the clique are headed to jail, least of them Holder. It will be a chaotic situation after 2Nov and it won’t matter if they have resigned before or not.
We TeaPartisans haven’t come all this way for just tea and cupcakes.
It’s blood and 2+lbs of flesh that we are after.

I think the Republicans need to look at something else also. If the boys and girls in the black robes want to continue legislating from the bench, they should be required to be elected to the “courts” by We the People. We need a bill.

I hope he does, and there ought to be some 536 Congress Critters in both houses demanding Holder’s scalp over this, but I won’t hold my breath till that happens.

As long as Conyers in on the Judiciary Committee, Eric Holder has nothing to worry about.

Asking a communist like COnyers to investigate anyone to the right of Joe Stalin is like asking Adolf Hitler if he wants to go to rabbinical school.

The best thing this old red can do for America is to die, the sooner the better.

ANy congressional investigation of communist infiltration of Congress would have as its first target, John Conyers Jr.

This is the most outrageous thing that's arisen from the NBP intimidation case. It's not just Holder and a couple of his appointed flunkies but a number of career attorneys at DOJ.

Hopefully the sunlight shone on this will change it in a hurry.

Not going to happen. The only justice we're going to see executed from this point forward will not be coming from the government.

Not a bill but an Amendment with specific provisions for dismissal from bench for “excessive legislative exuberence”.

But more of my point is when the “nut-cutting” is being setup it should be aired on national TV as was Watergate and NPR/PBS will be required to air the proceedings as per their “subsidy”.
As I alluded to in my previous post, “blood and 2+lbs of flesh”.

I believe you’re probably correct but it wouldn’t surprise me to see Holder resign to spend more time with his family in the not too distant future.

It’s fairly certain we’ll take the House and gain seats in the Senate, holder won’t be comfortable spending a lot of time on the Hill answering questions.

An amendment if we can get it. The “judges” now have powers never given to them by the U.S. Constitution. The bass turds just took them. They’ve got to be stopped. They are out of control.

I’m just thankful I retired from DoJ in 2005 and not have to work for the Department while this idiot is in charge. So Sad.....and I keep hearing from friends who are still working and they are so down as is all of the morale!

You all know where all of this is leading. Holder and his minions are executive branch appointments. Zeros refusal to fire them when known violations of the Law are occuring under their leadership....is an IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE.

America opn the dark side has turned into Babylon the whore but is still worth riding in the end times, at least we aren’t sharia ruled yet..Unfortunately, all of man’s ideas fail, we don’t know hoe to live, we need Jesus..

Agreed, they’re not even close to being blind.
