NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tonight, Thursday, October 23 at 9:00 p.m. ET, Fox Business Channel and on Saturday, October 25, Sunday, October 26 at 10:00 p.m. Fox News Channel. Fox News's John Stossel will feature former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell, author of LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice.
As Stossel writes: "Sidney Powell's Licensed to Lie reveals the truth about a cabal of former prosecutors who were promoted by President Obama to the highest positions of power…President Obama may soon appoint one of them to be America's next attorney general." See Stossel's new column on Powell's bold accusations here.
A respected federal prosecutor, Sidney Powell, has served ten years under nine U.S. Attorneys, and worked on more than 500 cases, Ms. Powell believes that the Rule of Law should be applied regardless of politics, that prosecutors should seek Justice—not just convictions.
Well into her successful private practice, Powell was hired to defend a Merrill Lynch executive during the "drive-by" prosecution that the Dept. of Justice conducted as part of its investigation of Enron. As she uncovered the truth, she was shocked at the high-handed, illegal behavior of federal prosecutors. LICENSED TO LIE chronicles political or personally-driven wrongful prosecutions of Merrill Lynch, Arthur Anderson, and Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, among others, in a gripping, true-life legal thriller.
Now major news media, television anchors for NewsMax and Fox & radio hosts across the country (such as Dick Morris) are paying attention to the destruction wrought by abusive prosecutors —wrecked lives, shattered companies, thousands of lost jobs. Peter Roff, writing for US News & World Report said:
"Powell's book outlines a nightmarish, even Kafkaesque environment in which federal judges are overly reliant on federal prosecutors to know the law and are woefully indulgent of their claims."
A major expose in the world's leading news magazine, The Economist, detailed the abuses Powell documented. She was also cited by Investor's Business Daily for her insights into "Hookergate," in which the White House fired Secret Service agents and military personnel, while White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler covered up for the son of an Obama donor.
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge, Alex Kozinski, who in his personal capacity wrote the book's Foreword, urges that it serve as a basis for a national discussion of prosecutorial abuse. Judge Kozinski joined Ms. Powell to discuss this with the CATO INSTITUTE—as broadcast by C-SPAN.
Powell's continuing series of newsbreaking stories of corrupt prosecutions, government misconduct, the War on Wall Street, and the IRS scandal, featured in the NY Observer, shed light on the ongoing meltdown in the U.S. Dept. of Justice, whose latest casualty is Attorney General Eric Holder.
