J. Christian Adams has been reporting on the "corrupt
press shop" inside the Department of Justice. According to documents relaesed under FOIA act, the collusion between the subversive Media Matters and the DoJ is criminal.
More on Eric Holder’s Flying Monkeys at Media Matters, Christian Adams, PJ Media
The unit is headed by Press Harpy Tracy Schmaler. We broke a story in
July about this relationship after a PJ Media public records request
revealed communications between Media Matters’ Matt Gertz and Schmaler
about Fast and Furious. (More on the corrupt DOJ press shop: “Tracy Schmaler’s (and Eric Holder’s) Trip to the Tropics,” “DOJ Leaks to TPM Muckraker Florida Will Be Sued Over Voter Rolls,” “Tracy Schmaler – DOJ Shrieker in Chief.“)
Today, Matthew Boyle blows the lid off
of the relationship between the United States Department of Justice
press shop and the leftist activists at Media Matters, particularly flying monkey Matt Gertz.
Boyle first documents Schmaler’s work with the Soros-funded Media
Matters to attack former DOJ officials, including me! Boyle writes:
Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler
working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news
coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.
Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J.
Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he
called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party
scandal.” . . .
Before Holden posted his article at 7:52 p.m., Schmaler sent him
several emails with information helping him attack both former DOJ
Holden attacked Adams again, and Christopher Coates — another now-former DOJ attorney.
After Holden published that piece, Schmaler sent him an email titled “Great piece…” and continuing in the body of the message, “On USCCR investigation.’” One minute later, Holden responded, writing, “Thanks!”
But DOJ’s wicked attack operative moves onto
other targets, such as those exposing the bloody Fast and Furious
program, this time aided by Media Matters’ flying monkey Matt Gertz:
Schmaler reached out to Gertz on March 12, 2012 seemingly
to suggest an article attacking Tea Party Nation founder Judson
Phillips for his public comments about Operation Fast and Furious. At
the time, Phillips was pressing GOP leadership to take action on the
gunwalking scandal. During a Fox News interview, Phillips said Fast and
Furious “should be investigated, but we also have to remember the
program itself was a partisan program.”
Schmaler obtained a transcript of Phillips’ whole broadcast segment
and sent it to Gertz in an 11:55 a.m. email on March 12, asking, “You
“[C]ompletely false,” Schmaler wrote of Phillips’ allegation. “[W]ide
receiver and Hernandez put this to a lie. There’s been lots of coverage
on previous bush operations…”
“Thanks,” Gertz responded one minute later. . . .
At 4:05 p.m. the same day Gertz and Schmaler were emailing about
Judson Phillips, Media Matters’ Chris Brown wrote a blog entry attacking
Phillips for his televised appearance.
Notice how Gertz is at Schmaler’s beck and call. As I wrote previously, he responds obediently and quickly to Schmaler.
Gertz’s email forwards his attack on Pavlich to Schmaler.
He wanted to make sure Schmaler at central command saw his good work. .
. . Gertz sends this email a mere “1 minute” after his piece posted. A
good monkey promptly alerts Master.
Gertz also provided quick reports to
Schmaler about his attacks on PJ Media’s Andy McCarthy, Town
Hall’s Katie Pavlich, Breitbart’s Joel Pollack, and Megyn Kelly of Fox
All of this raises an important question: how did the United States
Department of Justice become so intertwined with one of the most
venomous, dishonest, and radical Websites? Back in 2008, we heard so
much empty rhetoric from one campaign about how they would take politics
out of the Justice Department. Like so much from that camp, time
reveals it was all projection. They have engaged in a level of raw
politics that their GOP opponents couldn’t even conceive of.
And where are the once outraged reporters like Greg Gordon,
so quick to cover any whiff of skullduggery or politics at the Bush
Justice Department? Of course they are nowhere to be found, because they
agree with what is happening.
