Civil Rights Commission blasts DOJ

The US Commission on Civil Rights has released its draft report on the Black Panther scandal. It blasts the Department of Justice, finding that high-level political appointees were involved in the dismissal of the case (after it was already won) and that the DOJ subsequently tried to cover up their involvement. It also blasts the DOJ for failing to enforce voting rights law even-handedly, and for stonewalling the commission’s investigation.

The Washington Post’s story gives us an indication of how the mainstream media will play this story, focusing not on the damning allegations (much less the evidence), but on the partisan smokescreen that Democratic members of the commission have generated.
