Deliberately Misleading Testimony of Acting Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar, US DOJ

by Human Rights Alert, NGO Friday, Feb. 11, 2011 at 6:10 AM
jz12345@earthlink.net

Given the abundance of official, expert, and media reports of large-scale false imprisonments, widespread corruption of the courts, and unprecedented fraudulent dispossession of homeowners throughout the United States, the testimony by the Acting Inspector General must be deemed false and deliberately misleading.

Los Angeles, February 10 - on February 9, 2010 Acting Inspector General Cynthia Schendar, US Department of Justice, provided a statement before the US House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, concerning oversight of the department of justice. [[i]] Upon review of the statement and the true facts in the matter, the statement must be deemed false and deliberately misleading.

The statement lists "challenges" of the US Department of Justice, similar to those that have been listed in previous years, including:
* Restoring Confidence in the Department of Justice
* Civil Rights and Civil Liberties
* Violent and Organized Crime
* Financial Crimes and Cyber Crimes

The statement, as delivered, would lead a reasonable person to conclude that the US Department of Justice, in general, and the Office of Inspector General, in particular, are honestly addressing such "challenges".

The true facts in these matters indicate the opposite:
* In February 2009 Senator Patrick Leahy, Chair of the US Senate Committee on the Judiciary [[ii]] publicly called for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" on the US Department of Justice. Such commissions have been established by other nations upon emergence from various types of tyrannies.
* In July 2010 Prof Laurence Tribe, in his capacity as Senior Counsel, Access to Justice Initiative, called upon the Chief Justices of the several states to stop deterioration of the state courts in the US, to a level comparable to that of third world nations. [[iii]]
* In summer 2010 the United Nations Human Rights Council issued an official report referring to "corruption of the courts and the legal profession and discrimination by law enforcement in California". [[iv]] The report was based on official, expert, and media reports of large-scale false imprisonments in Los Angeles County California, and conduct, which should be deemed as racketeering, by the Judges of the Los Angeles Superior Court in collusion with financial institutions and large law firms in real estate matters. The evidence included Inquiries by US Congress - Senator Dianne Feinstein and Congresswoman Diane Watson - on the US Department of Justice, relative to their refusal to investigate evidence of racketeering by judges of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. The evidence also included consequent Inquiry by Senator Diane Feinstein on then US DOJ Inspector General Glenn Fine, regarding alleged fraud in responses by FBI Assistant Director Kenneth Kaiser to US Congress in the matter. The Office of the Inspector General refuses to investigate the complaint against Kaiser to this date.
* Since the early 2000s, FBI reports warned about an "epidemic" of real estate and mortgage fraud. Los Angeles County was distinguished as the "epicenter of the epidemic". By 2008, the "epidemic" evolved into the ongoing financial crisis. As part of the crisis, fraud by financial institutions in courts throughout the United States has been reported. Regardless, US Department of Justice continues to report to the US Congress that the ongoing crisis was only the outcome of "changing market conditions", and that no criminality was found in investigation of sub-prime lenders.

Conditions in the justice system in the United States amount to generalized integrity crisis. As was the case during the Great Depression, it is unlikely that socio-economic development and civic society conditions in the United States will improve, unless integrity of the justice system is restored.
