Under President Obama’s direction, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder has initiated investigations by his Civil Rights Division into the cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York.
While elements of the public, divided along racial lines, are supporting federal intervention in the cases, revelations uncovered by undercover investigator James O’Keefe clearly prove that Holder’s Civil Rights Division has no place investigating law enforcement.
A veteran attorney in the Civil Rights Division, Karla Dobinski, was previously involved in what a Louisiana judge called “grotesque prosecutorial misconduct.”
Dobinski, along with three other attorneys with the Department of Justice, were caught anonymously publishing online comments on their cases.
One case involved the prosecution of Louisiana police officers. The officers were convicted with the Civil Rights Division leading the case.
Due to the misconduct of the prosecutors, the convictions were later overturned.
As it turns out, attorney Karla Dobinski, was the leader of the “Taint Team” that was tasked with swaying public opinion of the targets of their investigations and cases. Essentially, the Taint Team’s job was to hurt the reputation of cops, leading them to convictions of law enforcement officers.
Karla was caught red-handed in the previous case.
Today, she remains an attorney with the Civil Rights Division with a comfortable office in the Patrick Henry Building.
Her case was probed internally by the DOJ and yet she remains employed and will not be part of the investigation of the cops involved in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
O’Keefe, through his organization, Project Veritas Action, is calling for an independent investigator.
