DOJ refuses to cooperate with Black Panther inquiry

In June, the US Civil Rights Commission indicated its intention to investigate the dismissal of charges in the Black Panther voter-intimidation incident, and requested the Department of Justice’s cooperation. After ignoring the commission’s letter for weeks, the DOJ has written back indicating that it will not cooperate. (Unbelievably, they claim that they couldn’t possibly cooperate until they complete their internal investigation.)

Naturally, the response infuriated the commission (which has subpoena power), and may prompt it to designate the affair as the subject for a year-long study and special report. Given that, what on earth could the DOJ be thinking? Everyone knows it’s not the offense but the cover-up that does real damage.
