J. Christian Adams alleges corruption at Department of Justice

Megan Kelly just finished part one of her interview with J. Christian Adams, one of the Department of Justice attorneys who prosecuted the case against members of the New Black Panther Party who threatened and intimidated white voters to keep them from voting against Barack Obama at a polling center in Philadelphia.

Under the Bush administration the case was brought to trial. Five DOJ attorneys worked on the case. There was no doubt in anyone's mind that the New Black Panthers were guilty. The evidence was clear. There was sworn eyewitness testimony. It was even on video! The defendants didn't even bother to make a defense. Adams said this was the easiest case he had ever prosecuted at DOJ. Adams said that if this didn't constitute voter intimidation, nothing would. The DOJ won the case. All that was left was sentencing.

Then the new President, Barack Obama, appointed Eric Holder as Attorney General. Shortly thereafter, the prosecuting attorneys were ordered to drop the case by high level DOJ political appointees. To be more specific, the case was dropped entirely for three defendants. The fourth defendant--the one who was actually carrying a weapon (a baton) got nothing but a mild restraining order saying to stay away from poling places (presumably except to vote).

Further, according to Adams, DOJ mandated that no other civil rights cases would be pursued if the issue was blacks intimidating whites.

The justice department has--of course--denied the allegations.

Part two of this interview will air on Meghan Kelley's show on Fox tomorrow.

I'd like to know if Eric Holder or Barack Obama were involved in this scandal.
