Former Justice Department attorney Andrew Weissmann has landed at the Jenner and Block law firm.
Weissmann, for those unfamiliar with perfidious background, was the strategist behind the demise of the Arthur Anderson accounting/consulting firm, based in our area.
His performance so enraged attorney Sidney Powell that she wrote the book “Licensed to Lie.”
Here’s how Amazon promotes the book:
A tragic suicide, a likely murder, wrongful imprisonment, and gripping courtroom scenes draw readers into this compelling story giving them a frightening perspective on justice corrupted and who should be accountable when evidence is withheld.
Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice is the true story of the strong-arm, illegal, and unethical tactics used by headline-grabbing federal prosecutors in their narcissistic pursuit of power.
Its scope reaches from the US Department of Justice to the US Senate, the FBI, and the White House.
This true story is a scathing attack on corrupt prosecutors, the judges who turned a blind eye to these injustices, and the president who has promoted them to powerful political positions.
The documentation of Weissmann’s improper maneuvering to undo Arthur Anderson is overwhelming.
And, remember, the U.S. Supreme Court found the prosecution too bad to uphold.
Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. wrote this in the book’s forward:
“This book should serve as the beginning of a serious conversation about whether our criminal justice system continues to live up to its vaunted reputation. As citizens of a free society, we all have an important stake in making sure that it does.”
Powell levied scathing critiques of Wiessmann during the Robert Mueller probe, which can be found on YouTube.
Here’s a lecture Powell gave at Hissldale College:
