Reports are the FBI may charge George Zimmermann with -- hate crimes are killing trade on Martin.
But when the factor call the attorney general last week.
Asking if he would investigate bias crime allegations in Norfolk Virginia the mob violence case we've reported on earlier the Justice Department refused to get back to us.
You're not analyze the whole deal.
Fox News political commentator Charles Krauthammer is something wrong here -- it gives.
-- yet the black Panthers in Philadelphia.
You got this case after case after case that just doesn't seem right.
Well first of our league and start with -- incompetence we saw that.
In the debacle with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
But if further column -- are -- at a pretty high threshold.
For corruption and I need either a smoking gun.
Like the Nixon tapes are cold cash what about -- what about the fact that he won't turn over the documents to congress and -- cited for contempt.
Would that if if it happens if he cited for contempt not now because you got you know.
Let the process play out would that -- are high enough threshold.
Look -- other things on his -- I don't think that's the worst.
Justice Department's administration's White House's have since the beginning of time.
Try to withhold.
Documents to congress wants is an age old struggle.
And unless we can see something in the documents that we know is around.
We can only assume so until I see that I'm not -- -- corruption but I tell you what I think explains this -- He's a political hack and the reason that is so grating.
He's because you can be a political -- in HEW.
In somewhere else.
To Justice Department is a really important job you are -- supreme law enforcement official in the country.
You are in Chester -- the rule of law and the constitution and the amount of stuff he is done.
As a pure political -- as you see you mentioned starting with a -- rich pardon back in the Clinton administration.
This is a guy who will be at the at the Beck and call of his political.
The masters two cases in point.
The case the Justice Department brought.
Against a voter ideal they know they're gonna lose it.
There was a similar Indiana -- upheld a 20086.
In which the majority included the great liberal John Paul Stevens or they'll lose in Texas why's he doing it.
To gin up the issue.
The voter suppression issues so called -- to agitate the base presumably minorities second -- the Arizona.
Immigration case they gonna lose that one too and they know it.
And the reason he brings it up to -- -- to Hispanic vote to bring up the idea of Republicans is anti immigrant that's how.
And if your attorney general you should be acting in that way you should be acting for the nation.
CNN in Arizona on the immigration case he's going to lose on what.
He's going to lose on the issue that.
And you saw it in the oral arguments.
As solicitor general tries to make the case that it is illegal for the state of Arizona.
To assist the federal government.
In carrying out its responsibilities on immigration.
Somehow the exclusivity of the fence.
And he -- assisting in that enforcement to that would be like that to do -- let's say police he can't help us solve our bank robbery because bank robbery.
Is it federal crime to stay out of it at the bank robber goes we -- -- you don't can't -- call us precisely and the case was so weak.
That in the oral arguments just to sit Sotomayor.
Who is certainly no right -- -- of his solicitor general.
Defending the Obama in case this isn't selling very well is it.
And they know it this is done is pure political pander -- do you believe it's.
The attorney general what to do I mean you would have to be at that level because really nobody else that he's -- -- into its President Obama correct.
I'm sure that Obama signs off on this I'm not sure Obama spends nights in bed thinking -- Supreme Court cases.
That we lose that was somehow help him in the general election especially if they lose by jamming up.
He was solicited you listening -- who would do to be attorney general that's his willingness but he got -- sign off from -- But he's a guy who's acting as -- -- So he's yeah he's -- anticipating what his boss might like to say.
-- -- but he's also a Democrat he wants to be in office himself whether I'm not sure if these days not enough for life.
If you're a Democrat and you believe in his senior and ideological -- he -- Why wouldn't you want you administration continues hi Charles thanks as.
