Robert Zimmerman told Fox News today that his family has not talked to his brother George Zimmerman since he was found "not guilty" on Saturday because President Obama’s administration may be tapping their phone calls.
“We do have concerns and always have of having our phones tapped, having our phones, you know, listened to by the administration or whomever because George is now, as we know, continually the subject of ongoing investigation,” claimed Robert Zimmerman, noted RawStory.com.
“A lot of the things that we do are connecting in person, that’s how we’ve managed to stay hidden for so long. It’s kind of old school, but it works… We’re back to what we were doing in March of 2012, because it’s right in everybody’s mind right now.”
Robert Zimmerman also addressed reports that the U.S. Justice Department is looking into charging his brother with civil rights violations.
"I think Eric Holder is being pressured by some groups who were calling for, initially, just an arrest. These same groups keep moving around the goal posts: the NAACP, Al Sharpton, the Rainbow Push Coalition with Jesse Jackson," said Robert Zimmerman.
"First they wanted just a simple arrest and that’s it, have his fair day in court and whatever the verdict is, we’ll respect it. Then when the verdict was coming they wanted him to be found guilty. But the verdict isn’t what they wanted, so now they’re moving the goal post again, and calling on the Department of Justice to investigate him more.”
