Again, as if we need another reason to question Eric Holder's integrity, if this reaches up to him, he should unquestionably be fired - I know, three hands are needed to count how many times we've heard that one in the last 18 months.
While Adams, in an interview with Fox's Megyn Kelly chose his words carefully, he didn't mince any. He wouldn't go so far as to call the DOJ corrupt but he did say with no equivocation that the decision in this case was a corrupt one. Possibly his most explosive charge centered around assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez; Adams basically levied the charge that Perez lied under oath. To watch Adams levy these charges, click on the link to the video embedded in the Fox News story below.
Fox News Reports:
The testimony from J. Christian Adams, who resigned from the Justice Department last month in protest of the administration's handling of the case, comes after he made a series of explosive allegations during an interview with Fox News last week. He said the administration abandoned an open-and-shut case of voter intimidation and that Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez gave false testimony before the commission in May.If you'd like to watch the entire interview between Kelly and Adams, CLICK HERE. An important name in this case is Christopher Coates, another attorney with the Department of Justice. He has been subpoenaed by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights but his bosses won't let him do it. At a going away luncheon for him prior to his transfer to South Carolina - within the DOJ - he made some strong claims about the handling of the case, claims he would no doubt be able to expound on if he ultimately takes the same course of action that Adams did - resignation. Such a move would free him up to testify openly to the civil rights commission.
Adams claims the administration has failed to prosecute non-whites when it comes to voting intimidation cases and that the New Black Panther incident demonstrates that.
"I don't think the department or the fine people who work there are corrupt, but in this particular instance, to abandon law-abiding citizens and abet wrongdoers constitutes corruption," Adams told Fox News.
It's also noteworthy that the individual who replaced Coates is the same person Adams accused of lying under oath - Asst. Attorney General, Thomas Perez.
Another name important to this case is a Democrat / poll watcher named Bartle Bull. He is outraged by the behavior of the Department of Justice in this case.
The video from November 4th, 2008; it should be living in infamy.
