Former Attorney General Ramsey Clark dies at 93

Former Johnson administration Attorney General Ramsey Clark has died at the age of 93, the Hill reported on Sunday afternoon.

According to the Associated Press, family members confirmed Clark died in his Manhattan home on Friday. A cause of death was not disclosed.

Clark made a name for himself as a progressive hero both during his tenure in the Johnson administration and later as a civil rights attorney for several high-profile cases.

Notable accomplishments during his time in the Johnson administration include supervising the drafting of the 1968 Civil Rights Act, ordering a moratorium on federal executions, and using his position to prevent housing and employment discrimination.

Among Clark’s famous clients are former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in a post-Iraq war trial prior to his execution and former concentration camp guard facing battling extradition from the U.S.

Clark also made it a point to support anti-war activists, working as a defense attorney for several after his tenure as attorney general and founding an anti-war organization called the International Action Center.

“The progressive legal community has lost its elder dean and statesman,” said Ron Kuby, a New York-based civil rights attorney after the news of Clark’s death broke. “Over many generations, Ramsey Clark was a principled voice, conscience and a fighter for civil and human rights.”

    1. I am a Republican. No Person’s Death is a joy too me. For Good or Bad all humans are equal in My Father, God’s Eyes.

      1. Too bad these demoncraps won’t be going to visit our father. They have all earned their place in purgatory.

      2. I am an American and the death of someone who trashed our Constitution like Clark did is no reason to mourn.

      The potential with this is endless…>>>>>> http://www.works91.com

    3. formermarine: I wonder why in hell this newsletter states: “nation in mourning”. It didn’t take me too far into the article to realize that probably is not true at all.

    1. I can’t believe you Gail nor Donna Marie. To God, all Lives Matters. Especially The Aborted Babies. I do not condemn anyone. Only God can do that.

      1. Stella: do you actually think anyone with an I.Q. # higher than normal room temperature, cares what you believe?

    1. Pat, You need to make sure you do not go to Hell. God makes that decision not you. Jesus Christ Only God’s Son can do that and that is only if we refuse to Believe in His Son, Jesus Christ and ask him to Forgive you of Your Sins. That Jesus died for.

  2. Let this be a wake up call to everyone .We will all die and We should make sure we know where we are going !One will wake up in Heaven or Hell.Heaven is for those who know Jesus as Lord of their lives.

  3. C’mon Honeycutt. Don’t be so sanctimonious. It’s unfortunate that the Chinese didn’t create a virus that kills only democrats.

  4. Air Force One takes a wrong turn.
    They were over Beijing when the engines quit, Biden ask the pilot what was wrong the pilot said we are out of gas. So Joe being the man of action that he is, he bailed out, he could be heard saying WHOOOA! I forgot my chuuuuuuute………….splat. Harris who happened to be on the same flight jumped too, but she got her chute on, when she tried to open it she kept pulling the wrong chord. She was pulling the chord for her kotex, needless to say that turned out to be a bloody mess. The pilot remembered to switch to the reserve tanks, and flew off into the sunset. This pilot will be remembered as a national hero.
    God bless him for saving the aircraft.
