This true legal thriller debunks everything the media and the government told us about the Department of Justice’s destruction and prosecution of the venerable accounting firm Arthur Andersen, Merrill Lynch executives who did one business transaction with Enron,  Alaska Senator Ted Steven’s,  and more.  The common thread through it all is a cabal of narcissistic federal prosecutors who broke all the rules and rose to great power.  Still in the news today—Robert Mueller s “pitbull" Andrew Weissmann and other members of Obama's inner circle—are wreaking havoc on our Republic.  This is the book that began exposing “the Deep State.”

About the Author

Former federal prosecutor under nine US attorneys from both political parties over ten years and three districts, Sidney Powell was lead counsel in 350 criminal appeals for the United States and more than 150 since in private practice. It was from her experience in several of her cases that she felt compelled to write LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice after seeing a core group of federal prosecutors break all the rules, make up crimes, hide evidence, and send innocent people to prison. The book reads like a legal thriller, but it names the prosecutors who then rose to positions of great power and the judges who turned a blind eye to their abuses of unfettered power. Sidneyis highly sought to comment on current legal issues and government investigations—especially the special investigation lead by Robert Mueller and his chief lieutenant Andrew Weissmann, who is a true villain in LICENSED TO LIE

What People are Saying About This

Patricia Falvey

“When you've finished reading this fast-paced thriller, you will want to stand up and applaud Powell's courage in daring to shine light into the darkest recesses of America's justice system. The only ax Powell grinds here is Truth.” --Patricia Falvey, author of The Yellow House and The Linen Queen, and former Managing Director, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP

William Hodes

“Licensed to Lie reads like a cross between investigative journalism and courtroom drama. The takeaway is that both Bushies and Obamaites should be very afraid: over the last few years, a coterie of vicious and unethical prosecutors who are unfit to practice law has been harbored within and enabled by the now ironically named Department of Justice.” --William Hodes, Professor of Law Emeritus, Indiana University, and coauthor, The Law of Lawyering

PhD, University Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor of EnglishAssociate Director, James A. Michener Center for Wr - Michael Adams

"This book is a testament to the human will to struggle against overwhelming odds to right a wrong and a cautionary tale to all—that true justice doesn't just exist as an abstraction apart from us. True justice is us, making it real through our own actions and our own vigilance against the powerful who cavalierly threaten to take it away."

journalist, historian, four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, author, November 22, 1963: Witness to History - Hugh Aynesworth

"I have covered hundreds of court cases over the years and have witnessed far too often the kind of duplicity and governmental heavy-handedness Ms. Powell describes in her well-written book, Licensed to Lie."

Victor Sperandeo

“Last year four government officials demonstrably lied under oath, and nothing has been done to them--two IRS officials, the Attorney General, and James Clapper -which caused Ed Snowden to release the fact that the US is spying on its citizens and in violation of the 4th amendment. That our government is corrupt is the only conclusion. This book helps the people understand the nature of this corruption—and how it is possible for federal prosecutors to indict and convict the innocent rather than the guilty.” --Victor Sperandeo, CEO and author, Trader Vic: Methods of a Wall Street Master
