Earlier today Robert Zimmerman, brother of George Zimmerman, told Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom that the Zimmerman family has concerns that their phones may be tapped by this administration due to the ongoing investigation of George Zimmerman after his acquittal last week. Robert said the family is texting George and not calling him so that they don’t give away his location.
This afternoon during his speech to the NAACP Attorney General Eric Holder told the audience that the Zimmerman case was still open and the investigation was ongoing.
“I want to assure you of two things, I as a parent, am concerned about this case. And, as we confirmed last spring, the Justice Department has an open investigation into it. While that inquiry is ongoing, I can assure you the Department of Justice will consider all available information before determining what action to take.”
