Federal Court Rules Obama Administration Interfered with DOJ’s Prosecution of 2008 Voter Intimidation by New Black Panther Party

Yup.  And I can guarantee you that Eric “My People” Holder was the keystone in pushing for his subordinates to dismiss the case: 

Federal Court finds Obama appointees interfered with New Black Panther prosecution
Conn Carroll – Washington Examiner

A federal court in Washington, DC, held last week that political appointees appointed by President Obama did interfere with the Department of Justice’s prosecution of the New Black Panther Party.

The ruling came as part of a motion by the conservative legal watch dog group Judicial Watch, who had sued the DOJ in federal court to enforce a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents pertaining to the the New Black Panthers case. Judicial Watch had secured many previously unavailable documents through their suit against DOJ and were now suing for attorneys’ fees.

Obama’s DOJ had claimed Judicial Watch was not entitled to attorney’s fees since “none of the records produced in this litigation evidenced any political interference whatsoever in” how the DOJ handled the New Black Panther Party case. But United States District Court Judge Reggie Walton disagreed. Citing a “series of emails” between Obama political appointees and career Justice lawyers, Walton writes:

“The documents reveal that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims in that case, which would appear to contradict Assistant Attorney General Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in that decision. Surely the public has an interest in documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials’ representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision-making.

“In sum, the Court concludes that three of the four fee entitlement factors weigh in favor of awarding fees to Judicial Watch. Therefore, Judicial Watch is both eligible and entitled to fees and costs, and the Court must now consider the reasonableness of Judicial Watch’s requested award.”

[…]
“The Court’s decision is another piece of evidence showing the Obama Justice Department is run by individuals who have a problem telling the truth,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “The decision shows that we can’t trust the Obama Justice Department to fairly administer our nation’s voting and election laws.”

    It’s been a long road and I have seen and felt a lot over that time but as an American I am feeling things inside me that I have never felt before. I wonder if Americans of the past were feeling similarly in say, 1774, 1860 or 1940. Its not as if it’s a horrible thing, sure I see storm clouds approaching, I feel a sense of foreboding, but yet, a sense of adventure too. Perhaps I am getting into the spirit of things, I don’t know, perhaps it’s just me.

    These guys, I see the picture and I think, Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, The Two Stooges. Would you think that all of our adversaries will be like this, I hope so.

    You see one of the uncomfortable truths that progs have overlooked is starting at a young age I as well as many Americans have witnessed racial troubles, as training exercises we have been bombarded with images of racism in the movies and on TV. We are thoroughly conditioned, in spotting racism or discrimination. As a result, we know racism when we see it. And when we see it we want to go all Billy Jack. Sadly, in most cases we seem to be more civil than Billy and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

    This is a lesson in, sometimes the best laid plan blows up in your face.

    A photo ID to vote is discriminatory against minorities (ie blacks, I live in an area with a large Latino population. The only objection I hear is that “the photo on my drivers license is ugly”). BUT actual voter intimidation by blacks in quasi military uniforms with truncheons against whites, well that’s just OK with the DOJ.
