Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden campaigned in Charlotte, NC on Wednesday where he spoke to the “Black Economic Summit.” During a rare Q&A at the end of the event, Biden spoke about a new plan to move the Civil Rights Divison out from under the preview of the Justice Department and directly into the White House. The final question Biden answered had to do with reforming the Justice Department, “and especially the civil rights division after four years of Trump?” Biden said Trump has used the Justice Department like his own personal law firm and if he is president it will be “totally independent of me.” Biden said the Civil Rights Division would also have a direct office “inside the White House.” “So I would make sure there’s a combination of the Civil Rights division having more direct authority inside the Justice Department.” “But most of all,” Biden said, he would have an attorney general who “understands” the DoJ is not supposed to be “the Department of Trump.” “I’d make sure there’s a combination of the Civil Rights Division having more direct authority inside the Justice Department and be able to investigate, than in fact it has now,” Biden said. “I’ll do what the Justice Department says should be done and not politicize.”
