Federal Court: DOJ May Have Lied About the New Black Panther Case
PJ Tatler ^ | 7/31/2012 | Hans Von Spakovshy

In a little noted decision on July 23, a federal district court judge concluded that internal DOJ documents about the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case “contradict Assistant Attorney General [Thomas] Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in” the decision to dismiss the case.

In other words, the sworn testimony of Perez, the Obama political appointee who heads the Civil Rights Division, before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights was apparently false.

The decision in Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice by Judge Reggie Walton was in a case filed by Judicial Watch after the Civil Rights Division refused to turn over documents about the NBPP case requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Walton is the same federal judge who presided over the prosecution of Scooter Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff.

In the final paragraph the author asks:

The Commission on Civil Rights repeatedly asked Attorney General Holder to appoint a special counsel to investigate the handling of the NPBB case by the Department and the refusal of Perez to comply with lawful documents requests and subpoenas served on DOJ by the Commission. When will the attorney general do so, and when will he ask for an investigation of this possible perjury by Perez?

Where is the investigation by the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) of whether Perez violated his ethical and professional obligations as a DOJ attorney? Will the DOJ inspector general open an investigation of the possible violation by Perez of 18 U.S.C. §1621, which outlaws presenting false statements under oath in official federal proceedings? Or will they all respectively yawn and ignore this?"

When Holder was Deputy ATT. Gen. in the Clinton Administration, he blatantly ignored a finding and referral from a Fed. judge that an administration official had committed perjury. The judge was reduced to fining the US. Govt $250,000 for ignoring the referral as that was the only action he could take since Holder and the DOJ ignored him. Expect the same from this.

The Judge fined the Federal Government $250,000 dolars.

THAT is laughable.

It’s like fining the victim. They cheat and we pay the fine. What a Government we have.

The thing is, this info is being released now because the Obama campaign thinks it will actually help him with his base- some of the brutha’s like it when they can screw whitey

After being named the “first gay president” they are hoping that will be totally forgotten

Okay so Bami’s team is gonna circle the wagon and nothing legally will get done either against the NBP or the Officials in the (in)Justice Department.

So why not file a host of complaints against Thomas Perez for providing false testimony to a Federal Judge? Kind of hard to practice law with out a License to do so...

Go get em Klayman.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez is the absolute Leninist lynchpin of the Regime’s effort to subvert states’ voter identification and verification efforts. It’s time to go after him by filing ethics charges accusing him of perjury in this case with every bar he’s admitted to. Just remember Clinton. Perjury charges before the Arkansas bar in the Lewinski case were what really hurt him.

I agree. But it was the only way the judge could send up a SOS flare that something was rotten.

Unfortunately, the MSM and the Congress chose to ignore it as well.

The case involved a lawsuit by a group of doctors over the secrecy of the Hillarycare taskforce that drew up the Hillarycare program that never passed Congress. Sound familiar?

It seems that universal health care needs secrecy in order to propagate its seeds.

As a result of Holder being held in contempt there is a complaint in D.C. to have his law licence in the District taken away.

You will never find the Holder DOJ taking action like perjury charges against one of his minions for one simple reason: he was following Holder’s orders.

You're dead on right. That's why I suggested ethics charges accusing Perez of perjury be filed with every bar of which he is a member. Such charges can be filed by individuals and/or groups, like Judicial Watch, do not require permission or cooperation by the "Justice" Dept., and can cause a huge amount of expense, trouble, and distraction for the respondent, especially when the charges are filed in good faith and are substantial and non-frivilous, as they are in this case. State bar perjury charges got Clinton's license suspended for five years in the Lewinski case, the most serious legal penalty he suffered for all of his crimes. That shows they are often the only real remedy for crimes and abuses of power by powerful, corrupt, criminal individuals like Perez and Clinton.

Scooter Libby and his supporters want to know when indictments are coming down.

State bar ethics panels may be the only forum where this can be aired, but they may just attribute any complaints to ‘politics’ and ignore the actual ethical violations of a fellow attorney.

Especially when the members of the ethics panels probably also have cases from time to time with the DOJ.

Still, its worth a shot.

“Still, its worth a shot.”

Yes, and, unfortunately, it’s the only one in town.
