|Obama's pick for A.G.|
Since that time, Holder has had his finger in a lot of dirty matters. He dodged congressional scrutiny in the "Fast and Furious" gun-running debacle that resulted in the murder of a border patrol agent. He squirmed out of accountability in the scandal involving his eavesdropping into the personal communications of Fox News reporter, James Rosen. The list of Holder's transgressions is long and pathetic. If Holder is the best our nation can come up with to oversee justice in America, then America is corrupt beyond repair (you knew that!).
In the George Zimmerman murder trial farce, the Florida state prosecutor and the Sanford chief of police elected not to proceed with a prosecution of Zimmerman, because there was not sufficient evidence for a jury to convict him of guilt beyond reasonable doubt. The details of the altercation between Trayvon Martin and Zimmerman are sufficiently unclear, that a guilty verdict was a virtual impossibility. Subsequent to the decision not to prosecute, the media published misleading information about the events surrounding the teenager's death. Predictably, there followed a huge public outcry, with racial outrage, and thousands calling for the lynching of Zimmerman.
Under pressure from civil rights pundits and Eric Holder's crooked justice department, Florida's Governor Scott dismissed the prosecutor and the chief of police. He then brought in Angela Corey as a Special Prosecutor to revive the prosecution of Zimmerman - sufficient evidence or not. A grand jury was set to hear the case to review the wisdom of proceeding, and Corey summarily canceled the grand jury. A new D.A. and chief of police were installed, and the prosecution proceeded. Despite the fact that even a successful manslaughter conviction would be unlikely, Corey pushed for "Second-Degree Murder". I think ousted police chief Chris Serino took wicked delight in skewering the prosecuting attorneys who called him as a state witness. He told the jury that Zimmerman's account of the events was entirely credible.
What followed is now history. Last night, a jury of six women fully acquitted Zimmerman of all charges. Yesterday, the IT manager (who had recently disclosed the fact that Corey and her prosecution team had failed to share important, potentially exculpatory evidence with the defense team) WAS FIRED !!!!
Just like the Benghazi disaster and cover up, this travesty is again highlighting the corruption of Eric Holder's Justice Department. He deliberately incited fury in certain racial populations, so now with Zimmerman's acquittal, there is fresh outrage. Thousands are incensed that Zimmerman is now free. I am gratified that he and justice were vindicated. Faith and trust in the integrity of our federal government is further eroded. Alan Dershowitz called for Angela Corey's disbarment in this article. Al Sharpton is pushing for a civil rights indictment against Zimmerman. Good luck!
