Desperate Media Cover Up DOJ Official Kristen Clarke’s Potential Perjury

via WSFA News

Kristen Clarke, the head of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, was accused of lying during her Senate confirmation process about a past arrest.

Court records showed she was arrested in 2006 for allegedly attacking her then-husband with a knife during a domestic dispute, cutting his finger.

“Nearly 2 decades ago, I was subjected to years-long abuse and domestic violence at the hands of my ex-husband,” Clarke said.

“This was a terrorizing and traumatizing period that I have sought to put behind me to promote my personal health, healing and well-being,” Clarke added. “The physical and emotional scars, the emotional abuse and exploitation, and the lying are things that no woman or mother should ever have to endure.”

The charge was later expunged.

When asked by a Senator if she had ever been arrested for a violent crime, she answered no.

After the records surfaced, CNN reported Clarke said in a statement that she was a victim of years-long domestic abuse by her ex-husband.

While Clarke’s allegations have not been confirmed, with her ex-husband denying them, the media defended her, with some arguing the context of alleged past abuse excused failing to disclose the expunged arrest.

Critics argued lying to the Senate was perjury regardless of context and that the media was biased in rushing to Clarke’s defense.
