    "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."


    "J. Christian Adams worked in the DoJ’s Civil Rights Division at that time, and has been arguing all along that the NBPP dismissal was a political decision from the Obama administration, not a legal decision by career attorneys. The Obama administration has repeatedly denied this, going so far as to offer “testimony,” in the judge’s words, that political appointees weren’t involved in that decision. The judge’s use of the word “testimony” strongly suggests that the information was given under oath by Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, the head of the CRD. If that testimony came under oath and e-mails prove it false, Perez may have to answer for perjury. Even if it didn’t come under oath but as a representation made to the court, Perez or whoever made that representation on his behalf could face charges of obstruction of justice.
    Judge Walton has some significant experience in this regard. Readers may or may not recall that Walton presided over the trial of Scooter Libby — who got convicted of obstruction of justice for offering false information to federal investigators. He also presided over the Roger Clemens trials for perjury and obstruction of justice, the first of which ended in a mistrial and the second in acquittal. The connection to the Libby case is rather interesting, and if this case gets that far, Perez and his associates might have some uncomfortable days ahead."

    Ruh roh.

    Update:

    "
    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. …"

    "But the court also said that DOJ had failed “to show that its withholding of some documents from Judicial Watch prior to the filing of this lawsuit was legally correct or had a reasonable basis in law.” That is no surprise. Far too many of the actions of this Justice Department, particularly the Civil Rights Division, have not been legally correct or had a reasonable basis in law. And in this case, DOJ tried to avoid releasing documents as mandated by FOIA that it found politically embarrassing since there was no justifiable legal reason for dismissing an open-and-shut case of voter intimidation that had already been won by default."

    "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?"

    Just proves us right to be concerned with Holders testimony in Fast and Furious scandal.

    The truth will come out in the end... lets just hope its not too late.

    Truth has no agenda....

    And even after Obama is Gone, and Holder will follow? Doesn't absolve then BOTH for high crimes and misdemeanors.

    I'd love to see BOTH in Orange jumpsuits.
