Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton exposes Obama administration secrecy, secrets, and corruption by providing behind-the-scenes details of what America’s leading government watchdog has uncovered in its and successful legal battles to pry loose secret documents from a stonewalling Obama administration.
Judicial Watch, America’s largest non-partisan government watchdog, has investigated the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. Judicial Watch is the group that helped impeach Bill Clinton and took the Bush White House secrecy all the way up to the Supreme Court. Since the beginning of the Obama administration, this grassroots group has filed over 700 open records demands and dozens of lawsuits, including a successful fight over the secret Obama White House visitor logs. In this book, Fitton reveals what Judicial Watch has uncovered in its battles on high-profile issues, such as the bailouts, Obamacare, terrorism, the Black Panther scandal, czars, the ACORN network, illegal immigration and stealth amnesty, the Obama White House’s actions against FOX News Channel, and Obama’s radical Chicago connections.
The book provides highlights of Judicial Watch’s historic role in pursuing corruption and the truth during the Clinton and Bush administrations. The Corruption Chronicles comprehensively highlights how the Obama administration, which promised to be the most transparent administration in history, became the most secretive in a generation, and it exposes the inside facts that the Obama administration has desperately fought—sometimes in court—to keep from the American people. A major feature documentary film is slated to debut nationally in late Spring 2012 and will tie in to and support the release of Secrets. Both the film and the book will educate the American public about the Obama White House’s creation of a government “transparency crisis” in Washington, DC.
