Why is Eric Holder’s DOJ promoting an admitted perjurer?
A career employee in the Voting Section of Justice’s Civil Rights Division has confessed to committing perjury, sources say. The employee, Stephanie Celandine Gyamfi, reportedly told investigators from the Inspector General’s Office that she perjured herself during an inquiry into Justice Department leaks during the previous administration. Despite the admission, she has not been fired for criminal malfeasance. Indeed, it appears she has not been disciplined in any meaningful way at all.
The genesis of Ms. Gyamfi’s perjury is apparently rooted in political attacks on the Bush Justice Department. Throughout 2005-2007, numerous attorney-client privileged documents, confidential personnel information, and other sensitive legal materials were leaked from inside the Voting Section to the Washington Post and various left-wing blogs.
Gyamfi should be be in prison for her actions, or at the minimum terminated from the Department of Justice for committing perjury under oath.
Instead, Gyamfi has become something of a hero to the radical leftists that now dominate the Holder Justice Department, where lying is a “state of mind” and anything is apparently allowed, no matter how illegal, as long as it serves the political goals of the far left.
Update: More from another former DOJ employee at Big Government.
