Attorney General Eric Holder is biased and incapable of neutrality in the case of the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white cop in Ferguson, Missouri, according to J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department lawyer.

"Of course he's not capable of being unbiased. Attorney General Holder is all about race," Adams told Ben Swann, guest host of "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"He said things he shouldn't have said, he went places he shouldn't have gone … he talked about his record of the police harassing him as he sees it, he talked about promising that change is coming.

"He made all of these pandering political racialist promises to the citizens out there that thoroughly disqualify him from being involved in this matter."

Holder flew to Ferguson this week to survey the predominantly African-American city of 21,000, which has been rocked by nights of rioting, looting, and arson following the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Holder discussed his own past issues with authority and said he was taking the Ferguson case personally. The Justice Department can determine whether Brown's civil rights were violated.

But Adams said he has no faith in the battery of lawyers employed by the Justice Department, charging that they are prejudiced.

"They think that the deck is stacked against African Americans everywhere, you can't get a fair shake in the criminal justice system, that people act with a racial intent all the time," he said.

"These are people who think totally differently from most Americans. They have enormous power. They are the attorney general of the United States, they are the lawyers who work in the civil rights division.

"So they will think they're acting in an unbiased, professional way, but nobody else will think that."
