Well, here we go. The head of the Justice Department's New Black Panther Party's trial team, Chris Coates, is breaking his silence and coming forward to tell his side of the story on Friday to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The Obama Justice Department's stonewall, we suspect, will be in rubble by the week's end. If Coates confirms THE WEEKLY STANDARD's reporting and prior testimony of former voting section attorney J. Christian Adams, there will be plenty for the Republican committee chairmen of the 112th Congress to chew over. And lots more witnesses to subpoena.
