Biden Says He Would Bring DoJ Civil Rights Division into White House

I would also make sure that I elevate ... the Civil Rights Division to have a direct office inside the White House’

EXCERPT:

BIDEN: “I would also make sure that I elevate the Justice Department — excuse me, the Civil Rights Division to have a direct office with inside the White House when — for example, I'm the guy that wrote the Violence Against Women Act. When the president asked me what I wanted as vice president, I said I want to have jurisdiction over that act inside the White House, because it elevates the standing of whatever that office that comes 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 and being able investigate then, in fact, it has now.”
