HOST STEVE DOOCY: You know what gives a lot of people a bad taste about this whole situation is the fact that it just looked political. It looked like they can’t get their way in the grand jury, so Department of Justice …

NAPOLITANO: Yes. It looked like the the apparatus of the federal government was being put into place in order to satisfy Al Sharpton. Al Sharpton is a voice for some of the people in that community, whether he’s speaking the truth or whether he’s speaking political bluster.
