Zimmerman: Holder Announces (possible) Pursuit of Criminal Civil Rights ChargesSubmitted by goldenequity on Mon, 07/15/2013 - 17:33
Attorney General Eric Holder promised that the Justice Department "will continue to act in a manner that is consistent with the facts and the law" as it considers whether to pursue criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin.
Carney said he's not sure Mr. Obama has spoken with Holder on the matter. "I don't believe this is something the president views as something he would discuss with the attorney general," he said.
Carney added that Mr. Obama's personal views shouldn't influence the Justice Department's decision.
