Charlotte Dennett: The People v. Bush

WED, JAN 20, 2010 (54:45)

Journalist-turned-lawyer Charlotte Dennett discusses her new book, The People v. Bush: One Lawyer's Campaign to Bring the President to Justice and the National Grassroots Movement She Encountered Along the Way.

When Charlotte Dennett became outraged that Bush White House officials were acting above the law, she did something that surprised even herself. She ran for a state attorney general seat on a platform to prosecute George W. Bush for murder. She lost the race, but found a movement--one that continues its quest to hold leaders accountable to US law and preserve a Constitutional presidency.
